TRACKMAN MAX EXIT VELOCITY (BP)

During BP, TrackMan tracked ball flight off the bat.  One element TrackMan is able to produce is the exit velocity.  Below are the top Exit Velocities produced during live BP.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Ariston Veasey GA Starr's Mill 2024 C 95.9 mph
2 Isaiah McDowell NC Hickory 2024 OF 91.7 mph

9 Brennan Helms SC Catawba Ridge 2024 3B 85.2 mph
10 Patrick Blee NC South Point 2026 OF 84.1 mph


POSITIONAL VELOCITY – INFIELDERS

Infielders were able to workout at shortstop throwing across the infield, or from 1B throwing to 2B and 3B in the pro-style workout.  Coaches are working to evaluate rhythm, footwork, hands, exchanges, arm action, accuracy, and carry.  To measure arm strength PBR Scouts utilize a radar gun.  Below are the top posted positional velocities from the day.

Rank Name State School Class Pos INF Velo
1 Dion Brown SC Clover 2024 2B 87
2 Jackson Mullen SC Catawba Ridge 2024 SS 85
3 Palmer Clinton SC Clover 2022 1B 84

9 Ryan McMahon SC Clover 2025 3B 71
10 Dane Craig SC Clover 2025 RHP 70


POSITIONAL VELOCITY – OUTFIELDERS

Outfielders worked out from right field, making throws to the plate.  Throws were measured by a radar gun to gauge arm strength.  Scouts are also working to see exchange, arm path, carry, and accuracy.

Rank Name State School Class Pos OF Velo
1 Isaiah McDowell NC Hickory 2024 OF 85
2 Cade Pilgrim SC Clover 2024 OF 84

9 Caleb Cloninger NC North Gaston 2025 LHP 68
10 Joshua Moore SC Clover 2025 OF 67


CATCHER POP TIMES & POSITIONAL VELOCITY

In the pro-style workout, catchers workout from behind home plate, making multiple throws to 2B, simulating a stolen base attempt.  Scouts again are looking for a quick, clean transition to the release as well as carry and accuracy on the throw.  For catchers, evaluators will put a stopwatch on the “pop time” or the time the ball hits their glove to the time the ball hits the MIF’s glove at 2B.  Coaches can also time the transition from when the ball hits the catchers glove to when he is able to release his throw.  PBR scouts add the radar gun to put a number on the arm strength out of the crouched position.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Pop Time
1 Ariston Veasey GA Starr's Mill 2024 C 1.68-1.80
2 Shawn Crowley SC Indian Land 2025 OF 2.01-2.19
