EADS, TN - The Easley Baseball Club continued their summer season with a PBR Scout Day at Briarcrest Christian School on Tuesday, May 30th. Close to 100 players went through the pro-style workout and there were several players that impressed at the different stations of the showcase. Below are the leaders in the individual categories recorded from our TrackMan unit from the weekend.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Kevin Landry Farr MS Northpoint Christian 2025 RHP 87.6 mph
2 Caleb Cowles TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 OF 87.6 mph
3 John Bingham KY Lyon County 2025 SS 87.3 mph
4 Jack Gleason TN Briarcrest Christian 2024 RHP 86.7 mph
5 Maddox Hampton AR Nettleton 2025 RHP 84.2 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Kevin Landry Farr MS Northpoint Christian 2025 RHP 2374 rpm
2 Maddox Hampton AR Nettleton 2025 RHP 2299 rpm
3 Caleb Cowles TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 OF 2248 rpm
4 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 2154 rpm
5 Jack Gleason TN Briarcrest Christian 2024 RHP 2104 rpm

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.

AVERAGE FASTBALL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Cannon Johnson TN Evangelical Christian 2024 RHP 18.4
2 Bradley Carroll MS Lewisburg 2027 RHP 18.0
3 Kevin Landry Farr MS Northpoint Christian 2025 RHP 15.3
4 Jake Melton MS Lafayette County 2024 RHP 14.3
5 Maddox Hampton AR Nettleton 2025 RHP 13.5

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.”

AVERAGE SLIDER SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Kevin Landry Farr MS Northpoint Christian 2025 RHP 2548
2 Parker Hicks MS New Albany 2027 3B 2362
3 Jack Gleason TN Briarcrest Christian 2024 RHP 2289
4 Phillip Sharpe TN Arlington 2025 2B 2287
5 Maddox Hampton AR Nettleton 2025 RHP 2253

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CURVEBALL SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Bradley Stubbs TN Collierville 2026 MIF 2449 rpm
2 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 2318 rpm
3 Elliott Poore TN Memphis University 2027 SS 2305 rpm
4 Cooper Bierman MS Lewisburg 2026 3B 2249 rpm
5 Caleb Cowles TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 OF 2249 rpm

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CHANGEUP HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Bradley Carroll MS Lewisburg 2027 RHP 20.5
2 Phillip Sharpe TN Arlington 2025 2B 20.0
3 Rollin Crose TN St. Georges Independent 2026 LHP -18.7
4 Aidan Strong MS Itawamba Agricultual 2026 RHP 17.8
5 Cooper Bierman MS Lewisburg 2026 3B 17.1

Horizontal Break: This metric measures the distance, 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.

PEAK EXIT VELOCITY (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 South McCoy MS Tupelo 2025 OF 99.4 mph
2 Eli Bagley MS Hernando 2027 OF 98.2 mph
3 Eli Palmer MS Grenada 2026 1B 94.6 mph

9 Dylan Phillips TN Munford 2024 C 90.8 mph
10 Wes Burkey TN Collierville 2025 SS 90.8 mph

Exit Velocity: This metric measures the speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.

PEAK ESTIMATED BATTED DISTANCE (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 South McCoy MS Tupelo 2025 OF 368 ft
2 Tripp Ray TN Briarcrest 2024 C 363 ft
3 William Brick TN Christian Brothers 2027 C 357 ft
4 Eli Bagley MS Hernando 2027 OF 346 ft
5 John Bingham KY Lyon County 2025 SS 341 ft

Distance: This metric measures the estimated “carry flat” distance, measured in feet, meaning the distance that the ball travels before it lands, or would have landed if it were not caught or obstructed.
