LA State Games - TrackMan Files


Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

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 take a further look at the data collected from our TrackMan units throughout the day.

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.

9 Van Mayhall IV LA Catholic 2024 LHP -8.9
10 Drake Parker LA Riverfield Academy 2025 RHP 8.8

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”
