Arkansas Natural State Games: Hitting Leaderboard


Scott Hood
OK/MO/KS/ARK Assistant Scouting Director

Prep Baseball Report Arkansas hosted the Natural State Games on Saturday October 22nd featuring one of the more talented fields we have seen in one event.  Today we take a look at some of the top leaders in data collected by our tech partners Trackman and Blast Motion broken down by class.  With the help from the data we can take a look at who's hitting the ball with the highest exit velocity, farthest distance traveled, the amount of times the barrel finds the sweet spot at contact, how quickly the bat is moving, how quick the hands are moving through the zone, the amount of rotational acceleration generated (how quickly you can get the bat moving early in the swing), and the percentage of time the barrel is one plane with the pitch.
