2022 Utah All-State Games: Blast Motion Board


PBR Utah Staff

The Utah All-State Games was held on October 30th at Snow Canyon High School. This event was an open event that consisted of prospects from the 2023-2027 classes. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, participated in defensive evaluations, ran the 60 yard-dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing at the event.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the leaders from Blast Motion recorded from the showcase. Please continue to check back over the next week, as we will release individual scouting reports on each player present at the event.

9 Max Moffat UT Woods Cross 2025 OF 73.3 mph
10 Blake Brotherson UT Orem 2025 RHP 73.0 mph

Bat Speed: The observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. The sweet spot of the bat is measured six inches from the tip of the bat.

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.
