AR Preseason All-State: Pitcher's Data Dive


Arkansas Staff

We wrapped up our preseason slate with our Preseason All-State event this past Sunday February 18th, featuring 77 players from all across the state.  The event featured prospects from the 2025 class to some up-and coming 2027 grads ahead of opening day next week.  The event featured laser timed 60's, jumping metrics, BP with Trackman and Blast Motion, defensive evaluations with radar gun readings, pop times, bullpens with Trackman data, and Vizual Edge testing.  Today we take a look at the top pitching data captured from the event by Trackman.   Velos, spin rates, horiztonal breaks, and induced vertical breaks on the top fastballs, curveballs, sliders and changeups found down below.
