NorCal Future Games Tryout: Trackman Pitching Leaderboards
June 20, 2023
The Northern California Future Games Tryout took place on June 6 with the goal of identifying talent to represent PBR California at the Future Games in Lake Point, Georgia.
Players were put through the traditional showcase split that included the 60-yard dash, BP, and a defensive workout using Trackman, Swift Performance Technologies, and more to measure every movement. After the evaluations, pitchers faced four batters each in one-on-one live at bats.
Prep Baseball Report events across the country have been powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading Portable system and Blast Sensor technology to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report, Trackman and Blast are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential.
All pitchers had a chance to throw a bullpen while being monitored through our portable Trackman unit. Each player threw all their pitches where we were able to collect key ball flight metrics such as release velocity, spin rate, vertical & horizontal movement and much more.
PBR was able to collect data on many uncommitted players around the states that is sharable with coaches & scouts as well as help players identify areas of development for the future.
This data has become significantly important for high school, Juco and 4-year players. College programs have evolved beyond radar velocity readings, looking deeper into a pitcher's ability to spin and move the ball. In addition to velocity, TrackMan provides pitchers with valuable data points such as spin rate, spin direction, horizontal movement, vertical movement and more. Ultimately providing feedback to college coaches, MLB scouts and the players themselves; to enhance training and also to identify prospects of interest above and beyond simple velocity readings.
At select PBR Showcases and Events, amateur players now have access to the same technology shared by professionals and are able to see how their pitching arsenal compares with those across the state and the country. The TrackMan Arsenal Analysis will highlight those metrics and explain the benefits behind the numbers.

Max Fastball Velocity
The maximum velocity of the pitch measured right at release.
|1||Rohan Kasanagottu||CA||Valley Christian||2025||RHP||89.0 mph|
|2||Sean McGrath||CA||San Marin||2025||RHP||88.9 mph|
|3||Warren Gravely||CA||Santa Margarita Catholic||2026||C||87.4 mph|
|4||Cooper Sides||CA||Red Bluff||2026||RHP||86.3 mph|
|5||Brock Ketelsen||CA||Valley Christian||2025||OF||85.7 mph|
|6||Mason Ravera||CA||Granada||2025||SS||85.3 mph|
|7||Tanner Grove||CA||St. Mary's||2025||LHP||84.6 mph|
|8||Zachary Simmon||CA||Central Valley Christian||2025||RHP||83.6 mph|
|9||Brady Hernandez||CA||Leland||2025||SS||82.8 mph|
|10||Carson Davis||CA||Marin Catholic||2025||SS||79.1 mph|
Max Fastball Spin Rate
The max amount of revolutions per minute (rpm) of a pitch. For fastballs, a higher rpm causes the ball to drop less due to gravity, this gives the illusion of a rising pitch.
|Rank||Name||State||School||Class||Pos||Spin Rate (max)|
|1||Zachary Simmon||CA||Central Valley Christian||2025||RHP||2333 rpm|
|2||Brady Hernandez||CA||Leland||2025||SS||2294 rpm|
|3||Tanner Grove||CA||St. Mary's||2025||LHP||2278 rpm|
|4||Rohan Kasanagottu||CA||Valley Christian||2025||RHP||2269 rpm|
|5||Brock Ketelsen||CA||Valley Christian||2025||OF||2260 rpm|
|6||Warren Gravely||CA||Santa Margarita Catholic||2026||C||2206 rpm|
|7||Sean McGrath||CA||San Marin||2025||RHP||2170 rpm|
|8||Carson Davis||CA||Marin Catholic||2025||SS||2059 rpm|
|9||Cooper Sides||CA||Red Bluff||2026||RHP||2028 rpm|
|10||Nick Schikore||CA||Rodriguez||2026||RHP||2006 rpm|
Max Curveball Velocity
Like many things in baseball, the faster the better. A fast off-speed pitch while maintaining traditional movement patterns makes the pitch harder to hit. The measured velocity for this metric is right as the pitch leaves the hand.
|1||Warren Gravely||CA||Santa Margarita Catholic||2026||C||76.4 mph|
|2||Zachary Simmon||CA||Central Valley Christian||2025||RHP||71.6 mph|
|3||Brock Ketelsen||CA||Valley Christian||2025||OF||70.7 mph|
|4||Tanner Grove||CA||St. Mary's||2025||LHP||70.4 mph|
|5||Christian Duarte||CA||Bellarmine College Preparatory||2025||LHP||66.0 mph|
|6||Carson Davis||CA||Marin Catholic||2025||SS||65.2 mph|
|7||Nick Schikore||CA||Rodriguez||2026||RHP||62.5 mph|
Max Curveball Spin Rate
The spin rate for a curveball tends to be the highest among all the pitches in a pitcher's arsenal. A higher spin rate, measured in rpms, on a curveball generally means more downward movement when combined with the top spin of the pitch.
|Rank||Name||State||School||Class||Pos||Spin Rate (max)|
|1||Tanner Grove||CA||St. Mary's||2025||LHP||2518 rpm|
|2||Warren Gravely||CA||Santa Margarita Catholic||2026||C||2218 rpm|
|3||Zachary Simmon||CA||Central Valley Christian||2025||RHP||2093 rpm|
|4||Brock Ketelsen||CA||Valley Christian||2025||OF||2089 rpm|
|5||Christian Duarte||CA||Bellarmine College Preparatory||2025||LHP||2038 rpm|
|6||Carson Davis||CA||Marin Catholic||2025||SS||2023 rpm|
|7||Nick Schikore||CA||Rodriguez||2026||RHP||2015 rpm|
Max Slider Velocity
Sliders generally are faster than most other off-speed pitches with less overall movement. This metric measures the speed of the slider when it comes out of the hand.
Max Slider Spin Rate
The higher the spin rate for a horizontal pitch like the slider means that it will have more movement from right to left for a right handed pitcher. This metric measures the maximum spin rate of a pitcher's slider in rpms.
Max Changeup Velocity
This metric determines the speed of a changeup as it is released from the pitcher's hand.
|1||Warren Gravely||CA||Santa Margarita Catholic||2026||C||79.6 mph|
|2||Mason Ravera||CA||Granada||2025||SS||78.2 mph|
|3||Sean McGrath||CA||San Marin||2025||RHP||78.1 mph|
|4||Brock Ketelsen||CA||Valley Christian||2025||OF||76.5 mph|
|5||Tanner Grove||CA||St. Mary's||2025||LHP||75.7 mph|
|6||Carson Davis||CA||Marin Catholic||2025||SS||70.7 mph|
Max Changeup Spin Rate
This metric shows how fast the ball is spinning during the pitch, measured by rpms.
