Southern Idaho Open | Blast Motion Leaderboards


Brett Harrison
PBR Scouting Director

The Southern Idaho Open is in the books and now we move into the post event coverage, breaking down and highlighting the standouts from the event with Quick Hits, Stat Leaderboards, Blast Motion Leaderboards and Pitching Leaderboards. The immediate takeaway from this past weekends event was impressive overall offensive performance that saw a number of balls leave the yard with multiple 100 mph Exit Velocities and mature, line drive filled rounds coming from players in each high school class.

At the Southern Idaho Open, we retrieved a significant amount of data on each player including: 60 Times measured by Swift Syncro, Batting Practice measured by TrackMan, Catch Pop Time and Velocity, Outfield Evaluation and Velocity, Infield Evaluation and Velocity and Pitcher Bullpens analyzed and assessed by TrackMan. We pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology in the game to provide the most accurate data for both the player and those recruiting/evaluating the player.

Next, we continue our post event coverage by highlighting some of the top in-swing metrics collected at the Southern Idaho Open with the Blast Motion Leaderboards.

About Blast Motion:

The Blast Motion sensors measure Swing and Impact Metrics across several categories. Swing metrics measure pre-impact mechanics centered around plane, connection, and rotation while Impact metrics measure pre-impact performance outcomes based on ball contact.

HERE ARE THE TOP METRICS OF THE EVENT:

Top Peak Bat Speed: 77.1 mph | Brody Jacksha - Belgrade (MT) | 2023 | Uncommitted
Top Average Bat Speed: 73.5 mph | Brody Jacksha - Belgrade (MT) | 2023 | Uncommitted
Top Peak Hand Speed: 24.8 mph | Diego Baker - Timberline | 2025 | Uncommitted
Top Average Hand Speed: 23.5 mph | Diego Baker - Timberline | 2025 | Uncommitted

PEAK HAND SPEED

Peak Hand Speed is the observed maximum speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge. For more info: Peak Hand Speed

MLB Avg: 23-29 mph MiLB Avg: 22-28 mph College Avg: 21-24 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (max)

ON PLANE EFFICIENCY

Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat. For more info: On Plane Efficiency

Ideal Efficiency %: 70% or Higher    Range: 65%-85%

Rank Name State School Class Pos On Plane Eff (avg)
1 Diego Baker ID Timberline 2025 RHP 93 %
2 Nolan Lehew ID Twin Falls 2025 2B 89 %
3 Ethan Maikranz ID Kimberly 2025 RHP 88 %
4 Cooper Cammann ID Bishop Kelly 2024 SS 87 %
5 Jason Williams ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 85 %
6 Josh Arrants MT Belgrade 2024 OF 84 %
7 Tav Hiaring ID Mountain View 2027 C 83 %
8 Jacob Jensen UT Cyprus 2024 OF 82 %
9 Nash Randall ID Blackfoot 2026 RHP 81 %
10 Jacob Vance ID Blackfoot 2026 C 79 %

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION

Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations. For more info: Rotational Acceleration

MLB Avg: 16.8 g   MiLB Avg: 12.6 g   College Avg: 12.9 g

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Tav Hiaring ID Mountain View 2027 C 18.2 g
