2022 Top Prospect Games: Blast Leaderboard

Brett Thorney
State Scouting Director

On Thursday, June 17th PBR Arizona had a chance to hold its annual Top Prospect games for the Class of 2022. This invite only event is held at the beginning of the summer and gives our staff & scouts an opportunity to see some of the improvements players made over the course of the spring season as well as who to look out for over the course of the summer & fall. The annual event has developed into an event coaches & players will want to have on their schedules going forward. It provides players an opportunity to showcases themselves next to similar high caliber players, many uncommitted. It also gives scouts the chance to see many prospects compete and show off their skills all in one place. This event featured some of the top prospects left on the board in the 2022 grad class from all around the state of Arizona. 

We want to thank all of the player who were in attendance as they battled the heat that reached up to 117 degrees during the day. The event at Central Arizona College included 60 + players and over 25 pitchers that participated in a showcase + simulated game play. As always, we gathered loads of valuable information on players that will live in player profiles that include Trackman & Blast data as well as 60-yard dash, positional velocities and much more. Scouts will use this information along with video to start to narrow down potential recruits in the future.

Since the beginning of the summer, one of the important tools Prep Baseball Report has started to implement at its events is the use of Blast Motion sensors. During batting practice, the Blast Motion sensors measure Swing and Impact Metrics across several categories. Swing metrics measure pre-impact mechanics centered around plane, connection, and rotation while Impact metrics measure pre-impact performance outcomes based on ball contact.


Top AVG Bat Speed: 75.13mph | Ezra McNaughton (Mountain View)

Top PEAK Hand Speed: 23.55mph | Aidan Young (Chaparral)

On-Plane Efficiency: 85% | Mason Saint Hilarie (Ironwood Ridge)

Rotational Acceleration: 24.47g | David Sobeck (Desert Ridge)

Below will you find the swing & impact metrics from the event in four different categories (Top-10 listed):
