Unsigned Senior Games - TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

WEATHERFORD, TX -  As the summer winds down here in Texas, and football season quickly approaches, PBR Texas held their first Uncommitted Senior Games at Weatherford Jr. College.  

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 Evan Harbach TX Argyle 2023 RHP 93.0 mph
2 Armani Knipper TX Southlake 2023 SS 88.4 mph
3 Tyler Gaudet TX Clear Brook 2023 RHP 85.5 mph
4 Blaiden Edwards TX Waller 2023 RHP 85.2 mph
5 Caleb Cowan TX John H Guyer 2023 OF 83.7 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Cameron Anderson TX Cornerstone Christian 2023 OF 2415 rpm
2 Walker Blue TX Legacy Christian 2023 OF 2387 rpm
3 Armani Knipper TX Southlake 2023 SS 2361 rpm
4 Matthew Clark TX Aledo 2023 RHP 2358 rpm
5 Evan Harbach TX Argyle 2023 RHP 2316 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 Armani Knipper TX Southlake 2023 SS 13.0
2 Cameron Anderson TX Cornerstone Christian 2023 OF 12.9
3 Brayden Willoughby TX Wylie 2023 RHP 11.6
4 Matthew Clark TX Aledo 2023 RHP 9.9
5 Evan Harbach TX Argyle 2023 RHP 9.9

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.”
