Kennesaw State Campus Tour: Data Dive, Position Players


Logan Nelson
PBR Georgia Staff

Kennesaw, GA - The PBR Georgia Staff traveled to Kennesaw State University for the last stop on the campus tour. This event was an opportunity to see a talented group from the area. We saw players from 2029-2024 grads. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60 yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw short bullpens with Trackman. There here were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Saturday.

Earlier in the week, we broke down the stat leaders from the more traditional categories in our statistical analysis. Today, we will take an even closer look at the position players in attendance with the help of our tech partners, broken down by the categories and leaderboards below.

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. While the measurement still has its utility, the 10-yard split has started to become more and more applicable in determining the player's burst and reaction time in-game, whether that's in the outfield or on the basepaths.

8 Logan Pogorzelski GA Archer 2025 OF 21.5 mph

Hand Speed: The observed 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.

BAT SPEED (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Kurtis Maher GA Denmark 2026 LHP 74.4 mph
2 Patrick Honeyman GA Kell High School 2026 LHP 72.7 mph

7 Daniel Gilroy GA South Forsyth 2026 1B 68.2 mph
8 Logan Pogorzelski GA Archer 2025 OF 68.1 mph

Bat Speed: The observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. The sweet spot of the bat is measured six inches from the tip of the bat.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 21.4 g
2 Logan Pogorzelski GA Archer 2025 OF 20.8 g

7 Patrick Honeyman GA Kell High School 2026 LHP 14.7 g
8 JC Slavis GA Pope 2026 3B 12.9 g

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
