Idaho State Games: Pitching Data Dive

On June 6th and 7th, the PBR Idaho staff hosted the Idaho State Games at College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, Idaho. This event featured around 80 prospects, with plenty of top talent from the 2024 - 2028 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players in attendance.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Statistical Analysis. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top pitchers with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

FASTBALL

MAX VELOCITY (MPH)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Diego Baker ID Timberline 2025 RHP 88.0 mph
2 Bryson Shea ID Eagle 2024 SS 87.2 mph
3 Ryder Scheibe ID Emmett 2025 RHP 86.5 mph
4 Nick Walborn ID Timberline 2025 RHP 86.5 mph
5 Jackson Wendt ID Rocky Mountain 2025 1B 86.3 mph
6 Grayden Lucas ID Skyview 2024 LHP 84.4 mph
7 Chance Schreiber ID Ridgevue 2025 OF 84.3 mph
8 Joseph Wyatt Solosabal ID Twin Falls 2024 SS 84.1 mph
9 Easton Cannon ID Blackfoot 2025 SS 84.0 mph
10 Jason Williams ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 83.8 mph

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

SPIN RATE (AVG)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Jackson Gardner ID Sugar Salem 2025 RHP 2435 rpm
2 Ryder Scheibe ID Emmett 2025 RHP 2413 rpm
3 Luca Quilici ID Bishop Kelly 2025 RHP 2291 rpm
4 Keegan Randall ID Ridgevue 2024 SS 2284 rpm
5 Caden Robinett ID Timberlake 2024 RHP 2268 rpm
6 Stephen Egan ID Eagle 2026 RHP 2250 rpm
7 Kyler Robinson ID Burley 2024 RHP 2224 rpm
8 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 2203 rpm
9 Brayden Schaefer ID Nampa Christian 2025 RHP 2184 rpm
10 Jackson Wendt ID Rocky Mountain 2025 1B 2177 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.

INDUCED VERTICAL BREAK (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Tegan Mortensen ID Madison 2025 OF 19.3 in
2 Grayden Lucas ID Skyview 2024 LHP 17.9 in
3 Kyler Robinson ID Burley 2024 RHP 17.7 in
4 Ryder Scheibe ID Emmett 2025 RHP 16.7 in
5 Jackson Wendt ID Rocky Mountain 2025 1B 16.7 in
6 Caden Robinett ID Timberlake 2024 RHP 16.1 in
7 TeJay Holstine ID Twin Falls 2024 RHP 15.7 in
8 Robert Morales ID Madison 2026 SS 15.6 in
9 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 15.5 in
10 Jason Williams ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 15.5 in

Induced Vertical Break: Used in short form as "IVB," this metric is most important on fastballs for creating rise and on curveballs for creating depth – it can also have some use when measuring sliders and cutters as well. Sliders tend to be closer to zero inches while cutters are generally between 5 and 15 inches. Usually fastballs and curveballs with large IVB have higher spin efficiencies as well. Sliders generally have very little (closer to zero) IVB and very low spin efficiency. You could also categorize IVB into spin rate as this is part of the “useful movement” you’re looking for. IVB is also a huge part of the vertical approach angle.

HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Gavin Koslosky ID Columbia 2024 RHP 15.4
2 Ryan Burbank ID Owyhee 2024 OF -15.0
3 Brayden Schaefer ID Nampa Christian 2025 RHP 14.4
4 Caden Robinett ID Timberlake 2024 RHP 13.8
5 Peyton Hess ID Middleton 2024 RHP 13.6
6 Jaden Estrada ID Kuna 2024 OF 12.3
7 TeJay Holstine ID Twin Falls 2024 RHP 12.2
8 Dylan Guay ID Owyhee 2024 3B 11.6
9 Cash Dahle ID Blackfoot 2026 LHP -11.2
10 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 10.6

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.”
