DFW Fall ID - TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

DALLAS, TX -  On Monday, October 10th, the PBR TX staff traveled to Lake Dallas High School to host the DFW Fall ID. The event consisted of players from all high school classes participating in a pro style workout. They started by running a 60, using swift performance timing gates, then moved into the defensive workout. The day was capped off with a round of batting practice followed by bullpens, where the TrackMan data was collected that you see below

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.

1 Brady Baker TX Wylie 2024 RHP 17.1
2 Benjamin Chen TX Grapevine 2025 RHP 15.1
3 Clint J. Burkey TX Sachse 2024 1B 14.9

9 John Moran TX Marcus 2025 1B -10.4
10 Grayson Moore TX Plano West 2025 OF 10.3

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.”
