Top Prospect Games (Upperclass): TrackMan Files


Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations

On June 7th & 8th, the PBR Tennessee staff hosted the Top Prospect Games (Upperclass) showcase at Friendship Christian School in Lebanon, TN, featuring many of the state’s top players inside both the 2023 and 2024 classes. Inside today’s TrackMan Files, we’re highlighting the best of the best – the talent that exited the event with arrows pointed way up headed into the summer.

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.

9 Drew Whalen TN Franklin 2023 3B 86.3 mph
10 David Hamilton TN Grace Christian 2023 RHP 86.0 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 Alec Bouchard TN Notre Dame 2023 RHP 2538 rpm
2 Pete Daniel TN Ensworth 2023 SS 2465 rpm
3 Jase Phillips TN East Hamilton 2023 RHP 2441 rpm
4 Caleb Coffey TN Father Ryan 2023 OF 2440 rpm
5 Brady Hendrix TN Summit 2023 SS 2421 rpm
6 Miles Harper Jr TN Bartlett 2023 RHP 2358 rpm
7 Keaton Reese TN Mt. Juliet 2023 RHP 2297 rpm
8 Matthew Shorey TN Father Ryan 2024 LHP 2263 rpm
9 Elijah Stockton TN Friendship Christian 2024 C 2214 rpm
10 Ryan Smith TN Science Hill 2023 1B 2191 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.
