LA State Games - Blast Leaderboard


Alex Armand

The PBR Louisiana staff had a good feeling about what we were going to see at this past Sunday's State Games.  From uncommitted seniors looking to find a home, to rising freshman trying to make a good first impression; there was talent all over Turchin Stadium on Sunday and talent from every single class. 

Today we look at the leaderboards based on data collected by our Blast Motion Sensors.

Peak Hand Speed: 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.

BAT SPEED (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Jacob Froehlich LA St. Thomas More 2025 3B 73.5 mph
2 Griffin Cooley LA Kinder 2023 OF 73.0 mph
3 Dylan Biddick LA Lafayette 2023 OF 72.7 mph

7 Wyatt Chenevert LA Catholic (BR) 2024 LHP 71.5 mph
8 Eli Booth LA Brother Martin 2023 OF 71.1 mph
9 Ashton Quiller LA Barbe 2023 OF 70.3 mph
10 Hunter Azemar LA Southside 2023 C 70.3 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.

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.
