Fall Upperclass Games: TrackMan Pitching Analysis


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director



This summer, Prep Baseball Report events across the country have been powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading Portable system to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and TrackMan are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential.


At the Fall Upperclass Games, when pitchers took the mound, every pitch was logged via TrackMan Portable units. Key metrics were collected on many of the top uncommitted players in the country. Today, we share leaderboards of velocity, spin rates, extension and movement.

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 Extension (Fastball)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Extension (avg)
1 Elijah Reece GA North Hall 2022 RHP 6.98 ft
2 Donson Morain GA Young Americans Christian 2021 1B 6.82 ft
3 Jeb Satterfield GA Ola 2021 LHP 6.69 ft
4 Carter Brannon GA Bleckley County 2022 RHP 6.41 ft
5 Kyle Felker GA Coahulla Creek 2021 RHP 6.23 ft
6 Tyrus Cobb GA Locust Grove 2022 LHP 6.16 ft
7 Tazwell Butler GA St. Pius X 2022 RHP 6.15 ft
8 Blake Wood GA Glynn Academy 2021 OF 6.10 ft
9 Parker Mirick GA Brookwood School 2021 RHP 6.08 ft
10 Charlie Siegel GA North Paulding 2022 RHP 6.07 ft

Extension: The measurement of the release point relative to the rubber, reported in feet. Essentially, a higher extension can create an advantage for pitchers as they shorten the time in which the ball is traveling from their hand to home.

Average Fastball Horizontal Movement

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Ethan Chernik GA Blessed Trinity Catholic 2022 RHP 20.6
2 Thomas Smith GA West Forsyth 2021 SS 19.1
3 Avery Brown GA East Coweta 2022 RHP 17.5
4 Parker Mirick GA Brookwood School 2021 RHP 17.1
5 James Lipsey GA Grayson 2021 RHP 15.0
6 Charlie Siegel GA North Paulding 2022 RHP 14.5
7 Conner Sizemore GA Northside 2021 RHP 14.0
8 Cole Munhall GA North Forsyth 2022 RHP 13.5
9 Barrett Eldridge GA Walton 2022 1B 13.3
10 Jack Butler GA Pope 2022 RHP 13.1

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.”

2 Agyei Quinichett GA St. Pius X 2022 RHP 22.7 in

9 Riley Cruce GA Loganville 2022 LHP 17.5 in
10 Jack Butler GA Pope 2022 RHP 17.3 in

Induced Vertical Break: Outline on TrackMan's own website: "... Distance, measured in inches, between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate height-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate height-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release, but affected by gravity. If this number is positive, the ball broke “upwards”, or in reality dropped less than it would have due to gravity alone – it does not necessarily mean that the ball actually rose."
