Underclass Fall Invite: Blast Motion Board


PBR Washington Staff

Bellevue, WA - The Underclass Fall Invite was held on September 3rd at the Bannerwood Sports Park in Bellevue, WA. This event was an open event that consisted of prospects from the 2025-2026 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 on Sunday.

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.

5 Brayden Fenton WA Tahoma 2026 RHP 20.1 mph

Peak Hand Speed: The observed maximum speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge.

BAT SPEED (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Gabriel Coltman OR Lincoln 2025 OF 70.3 mph
2 Noah Benedict WA Puyallup 2026 OF 65.2 mph
3 Preston Przybylski WA Mount Si 2025 C 64.8 mph
4 Jonah Aase WA Meridian 2025 LHP 64.8 mph
5 Hayden Heckenkamp WA Juanita 2025 SS 64.4 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.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (PEAK & AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (max)
1 Wesley Bonnici WA Gig Harbor 2025 2B 19.9 g
^ Gabriel Coltman OR Lincoln 2025 OF 19.9 g
2 Bryce Alonzo WA West Seattle 2026 OF 17.1 g
3 Braden French WA Bainbridge Island 2026 C 16.8 g

4 Drew Wicklander WA Sumner 2026 SS 20.3 mph
5 Brayden Fenton WA Tahoma 2026 RHP 20.1 mph

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.
