Central Valley Preseason ID: Blast Motion Leaderboard


PBR CA Scouting Staff

New Episode LIVE now! At The Yard Podcast

FRESNO, CALIF. - As an open event, this was conducted as a straight traditional showcase, 60 yard run, BP round (with Blast Motion sensors and TrackMan utilized for gathering of various data and metrics), defensive workouts, and pitchers ending the day on the mound throwing 15-20 pitch sessions. 

We will roll out more data from this event in the coming days and weeks. Today, it's the Blast Motion leaderboard.

(Note: All showcase videos have been added to players profiles.)

One of the important tools Prep Baseball Report has implemented 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.

With the Blast Motion sensor, we were able to collect data from each swing taken by each prospect at the event. The metrics collected include: Bat Speed, On Plane Efficiency, Peak Hand Speed, and Rotational Acceleration. 

Each player has their Blast Motion metrics uploaded into their profiles following the completion of the event providing insight into areas that could be improved upon as well as helping paint a clear picture of the player to the college and professional scouts doing their research on prospects they may be interested in.

(Note: All showcase videos have been edited and added to the players' profiles)

Bat Speed

Bat Speed is the observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. For more info: Blast Bat Speed

Peak Hand Speed

Peak Hand Speed is 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. For more info: Peak Hand Speed

On Plane Efficiency

Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat. For more info: On Plane Efficiency

Ideal Efficiency %: 70% or Higher | Range: 65%-85%

9 Dominic Alvarado CA Redwood 2024 3B 67 %
10 Brock Thompson CA Liberty 2024 SS 66 %

Rotational Acceleration

Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations. For more info: Rotational Acceleration
