BC Athletics Scout Day: TrackMan Files


PBR Tennessee Staff

On September 25th the PBR Tennessee staff hosted the BC Athletics Scout Day at The University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2023-2026 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.

MAX FASTBALL

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Jaxon Pridgen TN Riverdale 2024 RHP 85.2 mph
2 Connor Knight TN Webb School of Knoxville 2024 RHP 84.9 mph
3 Jonathon Van Ness TN Christian Academy of Knoxville 2024 RHP 84.6 mph
4 Camden Sholar TN Riverdale 2024 RHP 82.4 mph
5 Easton Young TN Stewarts Creek 2025 RHP 80.4 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 Jacob Camfield TN Knoxville Catholic 2023 RHP 2347 rpm
2 Jaxon Pridgen TN Riverdale 2024 RHP 2242 rpm
3 Camden Sholar TN Riverdale 2024 RHP 2194 rpm
4 Connor Knight TN Webb School of Knoxville 2024 RHP 2179 rpm
5 Easton Young TN Stewarts Creek 2025 RHP 2077 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.
