All-State Games South: TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

On Sunday, October 3rd, the PBR Texa staff hosted the All-State Games South at Sam Houston State University.

Today, 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 Dalton Olsovsky TX Keller 2023 C 88.1 mph
2 Colt Ericson TX Barbers Hill 2023 1B 87.8 mph
3 Briley Van TX Barbers Hill 2023 RHP 87.7 mph
4 Colin Huspen TX Allen 2022 RHP 87.3 mph
5 Hayden Tronson TX Deer Park 2022 RHP 87.2 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Briley Van TX Barbers Hill 2023 RHP 2421 rpm
2 Mason Kinchen TX Grand Oaks 2025 LHP 2318 rpm
3 Jack Wilhelm TX Concordia Lutheran 2022 RHP 2293 rpm
4 Kyle Lockhart TX Friendswood 2024 RHP 2265 rpm
5 Colin Huspen TX Allen 2022 RHP 2231 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 Colin Huspen TX Allen 2022 RHP 17.7
2 Dalton Olsovsky TX Keller 2023 C 15.8
3 Brock Rod TX El Campo 2023 OF -15.1
4 Briley Van TX Barbers Hill 2023 RHP 12.9
5 Mason Kinchen TX Grand Oaks 2025 LHP -12.8

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.”

AVERAGE SLIDER SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Hayden Tronson TX Deer Park 2022 RHP 2225

3 Colt Ericson TX Barbers Hill 2023 1B 2092
4 Thomas Williamson TX Tomball 2023 RHP 1920
5 Kolin Swindall TX Alvin 2025 RHP 1867

AVERAGE CURVEBALL SPIN RATE

6 Carson Garrett TX Barbers Hill 2023 OF 86.4 mph
7 Dalton Olsovsky TX Keller 2023 C 86.2 mph

Exit Speed: Also according to TrackMan’s own website: “The speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.”
