FASTBALL STATS


Peak Velocity

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Noah Genna NC Apex Friendship 2025 3B 77.5 mph
2 Kason Brown NC Triton 2026 RHP 76.1 mph
3 Peter Hoffman NC Cardinal Gibbons 2026 RHP 75.9 mph
4 Henry Russin NC Cardinal Gibbons 2024 1B 75.9 mph
5 Gavin Jackson NC Cleveland 2026 RHP 74.4 mph


Average Effective Velocity

Effective velocity is taking into account the velocity of each pitch, its release distance, the pitches time to the plate / hitting area, and the pitches movement.  With all of this information, Effective Velocity is allowing coaches and scouts to more accurately compare how a pitch is affecting a hitter.

Rank Name State School Class Pos Eff Velocity (avg)
1 Noah Genna NC Apex Friendship 2025 3B 73.8 mph
2 Henry Russin NC Cardinal Gibbons 2024 1B 73.2 mph
3 Kason Brown NC Triton 2026 RHP 73.0 mph
4 Peter Hoffman NC Cardinal Gibbons 2026 RHP 72.9 mph
5 Gavin Jackson NC Cleveland 2026 RHP 71.9 mph


Peak Spin Rate

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Andrew Mohler NC Cary 2026 3B 2161 rpm

4 Henry Russin NC Cardinal Gibbons 2024 1B 1901 rpm
5 Kason Brown NC Triton 2026 RHP 1849 rpm


Average Induced Vertical Movement

Induced vertical movement tracks how the ball rides through the zone, or sinks through the zone.  For the purpose of this board we are tracking which fastballs showed the most ride, typically leading to more swing and miss opportunities

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Gabe Schellinger NC Clayton 2026 LHP 23.2 in
2 William Fansler NC Willow Spring 2028 RHP 21.2 in

4 William Stanley NC Fuquay Varina 2027 RHP 19.2 in
5 Michael O'Briant NC Falls Lake Academy 2026 SS 18.1 in


Average Horizontal Movement

Horizontal movement is often referred to as run.  This measurement does not distinguish between early and late movement, just the overall amount the ball tracks to the arm side out of the hand.

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Ashton Davis NC West Bladen 2027 RHP 18.0
2 Noah Genna NC Apex Friendship 2025 3B 18.0

4 Cassius Grimsley NC Fuquay Varina 2026 OF 14.9
5 Henry Russin NC Cardinal Gibbons 2024 1B 13.7


Peak Spin Score

The Spin Score is a measurement linking velocity and spin.  It is calculated by dividing the spin rate by the velocity of each pitch.  

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Score (max)
1 Andrew Mohler NC Cary 2026 3B 30
2 Hunter Lanning NC West Johnston 2027 2B 30
3 Gabe Schellinger NC Clayton 2026 LHP 29
