Natural State Games: Pitcher's Data Dive



Prep Baseball Arkansas hosted the annual Natural State Games on October 15th in Conway Arkansas at the University of Central Arkansas.  The Natural State Games featured 44 players from all across the state with players coming from the 2024 class to a couple up and coming prospects in the 2027 class.  The event featured laser timed 60s, BP rounds with data collected by Trackman and Blast Motion, defensive evaluations with arm strength metrics, and finished up with live hitters vs pitchers with the pitching data collected by Trackman.  We dive deeper into some of the pitching metrics captured by Trackman with eyes on the top fastballs, curveballs, sliders, and data on changeups.
