TX State Games: TrackMan Files


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 data collected by our TrackMan units throughout the State Games

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 Jacob Gholston TX Flower Mound 2023 RHP 17.8
2 Zack James TX Flower Mound 2024 RHP 13.3
3 Jackson Melanson TX Boerne Champion 2025 RHP 12.7

9 Jeremiah Arnett TX Waco Midway 2023 RHP 10.3
10 Alex D'Angelo TX Argyle 2024 LHP -10.0

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.”
