TX State Games - Blast Leaderboard


PBR Texas Staff

WEATHERFORD, TX - This past weekend PBR Texas hosted its Inaugural Texas State Games at Weatherford College. It was a 3 day event that consisted of a showcase day and two days of gameplay.  The rosters were filled with some of the best players in Texas from the 2023-2026 Classes.

The event drew over 20 different colleges, including 15+ Division 1 schools.  We look forward to growing this event into the premier Fall event in the Lone Star State. 

Today we are looking at the Blast Motion Metrics from batting practice on Friday Night.

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
