Fall Uncommitted Senior Invite (South): TrackMan Files


PBR Oregon Staff

On September 25th the PBR Oregon staff hosted the Fall Uncommitted Senior Invite (South) at Chuck Bafaro Stadium on the campus of Pacific University, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2023 class. 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 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 Kaden Isola OR Bend Senior 2023 1B 85.7 mph
2 Declan Francis OR Lake Oswego 2023 RHP 84.0 mph
3 Jack Joyce OR Canby 2023 RHP 83.4 mph
4 Caleb Malloy OR Newport 2023 RHP 80.3 mph
5 Kaden MacDonald WA Columbia River 2023 OF 80.0 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 Jack Joyce OR Canby 2023 RHP 2350 rpm
2 Blake Geffert WA Union 2023 OF 2299 rpm
3 Kaden Isola OR Bend Senior 2023 1B 2229 rpm
4 Kaden MacDonald WA Columbia River 2023 OF 2168 rpm
5 Caleb Malloy OR Newport 2023 RHP 2120 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.
