San Diego Fall Open: Trackman Slider Leaderboard



SAN DIEGO, CA. - Prep Baseball Report California ended the year on a high note with the San Diego Fall Open. With the sun setting an hour earlier and on a weekend that featured a busy sports weekend in America's Finest City, the San Diego Fall Open had its fair share of standouts, long shots and new names to help set the table for 2022. The event featured 400 batting practice pitches, 136 live at-bats, 306 defensive in game slots, 96 pages of TrackMan and Blast data and hours of the best game on earth. 

With so many talented players on hand it was a great day of showcase baseball. The Quick Hits edition hit leadoff for post-event content followed by our stats story with photos, profile videos, scouting reports, and more on deck. 

In this article we'll take a look at the statistical leading pitchers in several categories covering the  sliders thrown in the game portion of the event. 

Prep Baseball Report 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 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.
