All-State Open: Trackman Files


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 each statistical category 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.

MAX FASTBALL & AVERAGE SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Evan Duncan AL Stanhope Elmore 2023 OF 85.9 mph
2 Jack Bryson AL Marbury 2023 SS 84.9 mph
3 Ian Cartwright AL Alexandria 2024 OF 83.3 mph
4 Wyatt Baldwin AL Hazel Green 2023 2B 83.0 mph
5 Carson Lucas AL Horseshoe Bend 2025 RHP 80.0 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Jack Bryson AL Marbury 2023 SS 2328 rpm
2 Wyatt Baldwin AL Hazel Green 2023 2B 2252 rpm
3 Ian Cartwright AL Alexandria 2024 OF 2230 rpm
4 Evan Duncan AL Stanhope Elmore 2023 OF 2172 rpm
5 Anderson Murray AL Montgomery 2025 MIF 2025 rpm

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.

AVERAGE FASTBALL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Ian Cartwright AL Alexandria 2024 OF 12.0
2 Evan Duncan AL Stanhope Elmore 2023 OF 10.9
3 Jack Bryson AL Marbury 2023 SS 10.7

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”

AVERAGE SLIDER SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Ian Cartwright AL Alexandria 2024 OF 2359
2 Wyatt Baldwin AL Hazel Green 2023 2B 2218

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CURVEBALL SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Carson Lucas AL Horseshoe Bend 2025 RHP 2243 rpm
2 Wyatt Baldwin AL Hazel Green 2023 2B 2210 rpm
3 Jack Bryson AL Marbury 2023 SS 2056 rpm

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CHANGEUP HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Wyatt Baldwin AL Hazel Green 2023 2B 13.7
2 Anderson Murray AL Montgomery 2025 MIF 12.0

Horizontal Break: This metric measures the distance, measured in inches, between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.

PEAK EXIT VELOCITY (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Junius Makei Griffin AL Pelham 2023 1B 97.6 mph
2 Mason Steele AL Headland 2023 OF 97.4 mph
3 Caiden Combs AL Gardendale 2025 1B 97.2 mph
4 Billy (Tre) Fulmer AL Chilton County 2023 SS 95.4 mph
5 Evan Duncan AL Stanhope Elmore 2023 OF 93.6 mph

Exit Velocity: This metric measures the speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.

PEAK ESTIMATED BATTED DISTANCE (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 Caiden Combs AL Gardendale 2025 1B 375 ft
2 Mason Steele AL Headland 2023 OF 367 ft
3 Chapman Blevins AL Spain Park 2024 SS 347 ft
4 Niguel Jenkins AL Pike Road 2023 OF 345 ft
5 Trent Weatherly AL Headland 2023 C 338 ft

Distance: This metric measures the estimated “carry flat” distance, measured in feet, meaning the distance that the ball travels before it lands, or would have landed if it were not caught or obstructed.
