Magnolia State Games: TrackMan Files


PBR Mississippi Staff

On June 21st & 22nd, the PBR Mississippi staff hosted the Magnolia State Games showcase at Mississippi College in Clinton, MS, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2023-2026 classes. Inside today’s TrackMan Files, we’re highlighting the top performers from this event from the data and metrics from our TrackMan unit.

Earlier this week we published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event. We also rolled out a Statistical Leaderboard pointing out the top recorded stats by category.

Now we'll continue to roll out the data we gathered from this event, starting with the analytics we have at our disposal from our TrackMan unit. Below we'll look at which players had noteworthy batted ball and pitch metric data.

MAX FASTBALL

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Stone McCaughey MS Lewisburg 2024 RHP 89.7 mph
2 Chase Russell MS Madison Central 2024 1B 89.2 mph
3 Caleb Authement MS Brookhaven Academy 2026 RHP 85.4 mph
4 Dayne Sanford MS Pillow Academy 2023 3B 85.2 mph
5 Andrew (Drew) Lamb MS Pillow Academy 2023 RHP 85.1 mph
6 Wes White MS Northwest Rankin 2024 RHP 83.6 mph
7 Matthew Birdsong MS Madison Central 2023 RHP 83.4 mph
8 Madden Butler MS Corinth 2024 RHP 83.3 mph
9 Calvin Robinson MS Northwest Rankin 2024 LHP 83.3 mph
10 Jackson Moore MS Tishomingo County 2025 3B 83.0 mph

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

PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Caleb Authement MS Brookhaven Academy 2026 RHP 2426 rpm
2 Dayne Sanford MS Pillow Academy 2023 3B 2386 rpm
3 Stone McCaughey MS Lewisburg 2024 RHP 2327 rpm
4 William Blevins MS Ocean Springs 2024 LHP 2321 rpm
5 Jayden Adcox MS Forest 2023 C 2314 rpm
6 Grady Mitchell MS Corinth 2026 OF 2303 rpm
7 Drew Lambert MS Madison-Ridgeland Academy 2024 RHP 2286 rpm
8 Brodie Wedgeworth MS Oak Grove 2023 RHP 2258 rpm
9 Gardner Young MS Jackson Prep 2025 LHP 2253 rpm
10 Andrew Burgess MS Central Hinds Academy 2023 1B 2229 rpm

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.
