2022 TN Preseason All State Showcase: Trackman Files


Colton Provey
Tennessee Scouting Director

On Sunday, January 30th, The PBR Tennessee Staff wrapped up the 2022 Preseason All State Showcase at Showtime Sports Academy. The event featured over 90 of the best 2022-2025 prospects from all across the state in the two sessions. 

Following up the Stat Story and the Quick Hits Session One, 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 Cannon Rice TN Rossview 2023 RHP 89.9 mph
2 England Bryan TN Middle Tennessee Christian 2024 C 88.6 mph
3 Thomas Lankford TN Fairview 2023 RHP 86.8 mph
4 Townsend Stevenson TN University School of Nashville 2023 RHP 86.3 mph
5 Ryan Sweeney TN Centennial 2023 2B 86.2 mph
6 Jase Phillips TN East Hamilton 2023 RHP 86.1 mph
7 Brycen Mcdonald TN Lewis County 2025 RHP 85.6 mph
8 William Price TN Knoxville Central 2022 RHP 85.4 mph
9 Ean McCord TN Davidson Academy 2025 RHP 85.3 mph
10 Jordan Jewell TN Lebanon 2025 RHP 84.9 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Andrew Davis TN Brighton 2023 SS 2372 rpm
2 Carter Waltz TN Springfield 2023 LHP 2305 rpm
3 Jase Phillips TN East Hamilton 2023 RHP 2302 rpm
4 Slader Tinker TN Daniel Boone 2024 3B 2302 rpm
5 Wyatt Guethlein TN Wilson Central 2022 RHP 2299 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 Anderson Franklin TN Greeneville 2025 MIF 16.0
2 Nolan Bernard TN McCallie 2025 RHP 15.9
3 Austin Jones TN East Robertson 2023 LHP -15.8
4 William Parker Davis TN Covington 2023 LHP -15.6
5 Konner Bowden TN Columbia Central 2024 OF -15.2

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.”
