All-State Open: Blast Motion Board


PBR Alabama Staff

MILLBROOK, AL - The All-State Open was held on Tuesday, June 28th at Stanhope Elmore High School in Millbrook, AL. This event was an open event that consisted of prospects from the 2023 and 2026 classes. These players went through a pro-style workout and took batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion to record hitting metrics. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Tuesday.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the leaders from Blast Motion recorded from the showcase. Please continue to check back over the next week, as we will release individual scouting reports on each player present at the event.

Peak Hand Speed: The observed maximum speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge.

BAT SPEED (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Caiden Combs AL Gardendale 2025 1B 74.4 mph
2 Mason Steele AL Headland 2023 OF 73.9 mph

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (PEAK & AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (max)
1 Billy (Tre) Fulmer AL Chilton County 2023 SS 34.1 g
2 Romney Henry AL Stanhope Elmore 2025 RHP 33.7 g
3 Brock Isbell AL Pelham 2024 2B 28.6 g
4 Mack Boswell AL Stanhope Elmore 2025 C 27.4 g
5 Junius Makei Griffin AL Pelham 2023 1B 24.1 g

2 Romney Henry AL Stanhope Elmore 2025 RHP 26.6 g
3 Brock Isbell AL Pelham 2024 2B 24.7 g
4 Mack Boswell AL Stanhope Elmore 2025 C 22.6 g
5 Bryce Speakman AL Opelika 2023 OF 19.7 g

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
