PBR Florida Staff

The 2023 Sophomore State Games took place October 21-22 at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona, FL. The event featured players from the 2026 class participating in a pro-style workout and three games over the two day span in front of the PBR Florida Scouting Staff.

Inside today’s Position Player Data Dive we will highlight the players with top metrics per Trackman, Blast, and Swift Athletic Testing.

Monday, we broke down the stat leaders from the more traditional categories in our Statistical Analysis. Today, we will take an even closer look at the position players in attendance with the help of our tech partners, broken down by the categories and leaderboards below.

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. While the measurement still has its utility, the 10-yard split has started to become more and more applicable in determining the player's burst and reaction time in-game, whether that's in the outfield or on the basepaths.

10 Julian Diaz FL St Thomas Aquinas 2026 SS 16.2 g

Rotational Acceleration: Rotation measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly vs. pulling the bat with your hands. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to make a decision at the plate.
