Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations

On September 11th the PBR Tennessee staff hosted the 5 Star Midsouth Scout Day at Western Kentucky University, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2022-2026 classes. 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 published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event. We also 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.

View all stats from the event HERE.

 

MAX FASTBALL

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Andrew Moore TN Sevier County 2023 RHP 90.2 mph
2 Cannon Rice TN Rossview 2023 RHP 89.4 mph
3 Aidan Niggl TN Mount Juliet 2025 RHP 88.5 mph
4 Gavin King TN Liberty Creek 2024 RHP 86.5 mph
5 Lantz Shirk TN Rossview 2023 RHP 86.2 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 Brody Waller TN CAK 2026 1B 2327 rpm
2 Lantz Shirk TN Rossview 2023 RHP 2323 rpm
3 Hayden Finney TN Mount Juliet 2025 RHP 2279 rpm
4 Aidan Niggl TN Mount Juliet 2025 RHP 2276 rpm
5 Bryson Kent TN Walker Valley 2025 OF 2265 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.
