Colorado Springs Preseason ID: Pitching Data Dive


Caleb Dameron
Prep Baseball Colorado Staff

On Sunday, February 11th, the Prep Baseball Colorado staff hosted the Colorado Springs Preseason ID at The Farm Sports in Colorado Springs. This event featured 25 prospects from the 2024 - 2027 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the players in attendance.

Today we'll continue our deep dive into the data collected at this event within this Pitching Data Dive story. Over the next couple of days we’ll be diving deeper into all of the data we collected rolling out even more coverage from the event.

FASTBALL

MAX VELOCITY (MPH)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Bryce Love CO Peyton 2026 OF 87.9 mph
2 Liam Martin CO Rampart 2026 RHP 84.0 mph
3 Drew Boyarko CO Lewis-Palmer 2025 RHP 81.9 mph
4 Joseph Baumbach CO Fountain-Fort Carson 2025 OF 78.9 mph
5 Benjamin Adams CO Arapahoe 2027 RHP 78.0 mph
6 Jacob Holm CO Pine Creek 2027 SS 76.9 mph
7 Logan Osborn CO Fountain Fort Carson 2026 OF 76.3 mph
8 Gabriel Reszczynski CO Palmer Ridge High School 2025 RHP 75.5 mph
9 Jake Lentz CO Pine Creek 2025 OF 75.4 mph
10 Hayden Cap CO Ponderosa 2027 C 74.8 mph

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

SPIN RATE (AVG)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Liam Martin CO Rampart 2026 RHP 2063 rpm
2 Joseph Baumbach CO Fountain-Fort Carson 2025 OF 2056 rpm
3 Hayden Cap CO Ponderosa 2027 C 2029 rpm
4 Bryce Love CO Peyton 2026 OF 1991 rpm
5 Benjamin Adams CO Arapahoe 2027 RHP 1983 rpm
6 Drew Boyarko CO Lewis-Palmer 2025 RHP 1863 rpm
7 Gabriel Reszczynski CO Palmer Ridge High School 2025 RHP 1854 rpm
8 Logan Osborn CO Fountain Fort Carson 2026 OF 1818 rpm
9 Jake Lentz CO Pine Creek 2025 OF 1752 rpm
10 Jacob Holm CO Pine Creek 2027 SS 1726 rpm

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.

INDUCED VERTICAL BREAK (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Logan Osborn CO Fountain Fort Carson 2026 OF 11.7 in
2 Joseph Baumbach CO Fountain-Fort Carson 2025 OF 11.6 in
3 Gabriel Reszczynski CO Palmer Ridge High School 2025 RHP 11.1 in
4 Jacob Holm CO Pine Creek 2027 SS 10.9 in
5 Hayden Cap CO Ponderosa 2027 C 10.7 in
6 Bryce Love CO Peyton 2026 OF 10.6 in
7 Liam Martin CO Rampart 2026 RHP 10.3 in
8 Jake Lentz CO Pine Creek 2025 OF 9.8 in
9 Drew Boyarko CO Lewis-Palmer 2025 RHP 8.6 in
10 Benjamin Adams CO Arapahoe 2027 RHP 8.3 in

Induced Vertical Break: Used in short form as "IVB," this metric is most important on fastballs for creating rise and on curveballs for creating depth – it can also have some use when measuring sliders and cutters as well. Sliders tend to be closer to zero inches while cutters are generally between 5 and 15 inches. Usually fastballs and curveballs with large IVB have higher spin efficiencies as well. Sliders generally have very little (closer to zero) IVB and very low spin efficiency. You could also categorize IVB into spin rate as this is part of the “useful movement” you’re looking for. IVB is also a huge part of the vertical approach angle.

HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (AVG.)

4 Gabriel Reszczynski CO Palmer Ridge High School 2025 RHP 8.2
5 Jacob Holm CO Pine Creek 2027 SS 7.3
6 Logan Osborn CO Fountain Fort Carson 2026 OF 7.1
7 Liam Martin CO Rampart 2026 RHP 5.7
8 Benjamin Adams CO Arapahoe 2027 RHP 2.1
9 Jake Lentz CO Pine Creek 2025 OF -1.2
10 Joseph Baumbach CO Fountain-Fort Carson 2025 OF -1.0

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”
