Central Coast Preseason ID: TrackMan Pitching Data


PBR CA Scouting Staff

New Episode LIVE now! At The Yard Podcast

SALINAS, CALIF. - As an open event, this was conducted as a straight traditional showcase, 60 yard run, BP round (with Blast Motion sensors and TrackMan utilized for gathering of various data and metrics), defensive workouts, and pitchers ending the day on the mound throwing 15-20 pitch sessions. 

We will roll out more data from this event in the coming days and weeks. Today, it's the pitching info gathered with the portable TrackMan B1 unit.

(Note: All showcase videos have been added to players profiles.)

Prep Baseball Report California events across the country have been powered by TrackMan’s industry-leading portable system to capture pinpoint accurate, actionable data from player performances. Prep Baseball Report and TrackMan are dedicated to recognizing talent and unleashing their potential.

At the event all pitchers pitches were monitored through the portable Trackman B1 unit. Each player threw their complete arsenal of pitches allowing us to collect metrics such as release velocity, spin rate, vertical & horizontal movement and much more.

This data goes directly into the player profiles allowing the PBR Staff, college coaches and professional scouts alike to evaluate and compare prospects on a national scale.

Here are some of the advanced metrics gathered, available for subscribers to PBR Plus (effective velocity, max & avg IVB, max & avg horizontal movement, extension avg, release height avg, zone %).

Spin Rate is defined as how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher's hand, measured in "Revolutions per Minute or RPM"

Spin Score (listed in the sortable player stats link below) = Spin Rate (RPM) / Velocity (MPH)

Driveline Baseball on Spin Score: Spin Scores are intended to control for velocity when looking at spin rate. The equation was intended to be simple enough for coaches and players to use quickly in practice to compare pitchers to MLB average.

We will roll out more content, including the reports, in the coming weeks.

(Note: All showcase videos have been edited and added to the players' profiles)
