Manager, Deep South Operations

Pearl, MS - On October 15th the PBR Mississippi staff hosted the Mississippi Fall ID at Trustmark Park in Pearl, 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 Calvin Robinson MS Northwest Rankin 2024 LHP 85.2 mph
2 Tristan Hendrix MS Hatley 2025 RHP 85.1 mph
3 Jackson Howard MS Columbus Christian 2023 RHP 82.7 mph
4 Carter Hathcock MS Kirk Academy 2024 3B 82.5 mph
5 Davis Torrey MS Madison Central 2023 RHP 79.4 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 Brant Rounsaville MS Gulfport 2026 3B 2205 rpm
2 Jackson Howard MS Columbus Christian 2023 RHP 2188 rpm
3 Calvin Robinson MS Northwest Rankin 2024 LHP 2167 rpm
4 Davis Torrey MS Madison Central 2023 RHP 2156 rpm
5 Landon Hoshell MS Magnolia Heights 2025 2B 2119 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.
