On Saturday, January 29th, The PBR Tennessee Staff hosted the 2022 East TN Preseason ID Showcase at BC Athletics in Knoxville. The event featured over 45 prospects from all high school classes.

Following up the Stat Story, we’re continuing our post-event analysis by examining the data measured by our TrackMan units. The technology is able to capture information that’s difficult to capture by the naked eye, like pitch-by-pitch metrics and batted-ball data. We’ll explain more below:

MAX FASTBALL & PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Cade Batchelor TN Maryville 2024 SS 86.4 mph
2 Reilly Byers TN Gibbs 2023 LHP 86.1 mph
3 Justin Bell TN William Blount 2023 RHP 85.9 mph
4 Ethan Crump TN McCallie 2023 RHP 85.7 mph
5 David Hamilton TN Grace Christian 2023 RHP 84.1 mph
6 Ryan Smith TN Science Hill 2023 1B 81.8 mph
7 Lucas Belcher TN Providence Academy 2023 3B 81.4 mph
8 Nathan Eisfelder TN Providence Academy 2025 OF 80.7 mph
9 Jacob Camfield TN Knoxville Catholic 2023 RHP 80.5 mph
10 Jeb Cox TN Bearden 2023 LHP 79.9 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Ethan Crump TN McCallie 2023 RHP 2341 rpm
2 Cade Batchelor TN Maryville 2024 SS 2247 rpm
3 Reilly Byers TN Gibbs 2023 LHP 2244 rpm
4 Lucas Belcher TN Providence Academy 2023 3B 2183 rpm
5 Nathan Eisfelder TN Providence Academy 2025 OF 2121 rpm

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

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.

AVERAGE FASTBALL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Reilly Byers TN Gibbs 2023 LHP -14.4
2 Jeb Cox TN Bearden 2023 LHP -13.3
3 Nathan Eisfelder TN Providence Academy 2025 OF 13.0
4 Gavin Janeway TN Union County 2024 RHP 12.2
5 Ethan Crump TN McCallie 2023 RHP 11.7

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.”

AVERAGE SLIDER SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Jacob Camfield TN Knoxville Catholic 2023 RHP 2171

9 Cade Batchelor TN Maryville 2024 SS 85.9 mph
10 Rinaldo Matti TN Providence Academy 2025 C 85.7 mph

Exit Speed: Also according to TrackMan’s own website: “The speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.”
