comment Does a Buckyball spin like an electron or like a baseball?
I have accepted this answer, but I am still thinking about the boundary. A proton and a neutron are not point particles, so I would say they also spin like baseballs. Besides the electron, the photon which is not a point particle, but is a zero (rest) mass “particle” would not spin like a baseball. Similarly the gluon, the quark and the graviton would be non-baseball spinners. This leaves the neutrino, sdomewhat more uncertain, but still probably on the not baseball-like side. But everything else would fall on the spins like a baseball side.
