State Scouting Director

The high school baseball season in Arizona is coming up quickly with many prospects around the state gearing up for their seasons. PBR Arizona recently had a chance to wrap up its preseason schedule with its Arizona Preseason ID. This open event continues to be a huge identifier of new prospects in Arizona and to get quality prospect updates on players we have seen in the past. 

PBR Arizona held its Arizona Preseason ID on Saturday, February 13th at Desert Ridge High School in Mesa, AZ. This event featured 50+ prospects from the 2021-2025 grad classes from all across the state of Arizona with a few players trickling in from border states. This event has become a popular event as players go into their high school seasons. 

Today, we will be taking a look at some of the Blast data recorded from our Preseason ID with the top-10 leaders in 4 key metrics.

ABOUT BLAST MOTION:

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.

HERE ARE THE TOP METRICS OF THE DAY:

Top AVG Bat Speed: 74.04mph | 2022 3B Keaton Walker (Corona Del Sol)

Top PEAK Hand Speed: 24.59mph | 2023 C Tyler Davis (Mountain View)

On-Plane Efficiency: 86% | 2025 OF Tito Adelakun (Sandra Day O'Connor)

Rotational Acceleration: 20.46g | 2021 OF Josiah Kidd (Desert Ridge)
