Georgia Southern Campus Tour: Blast Motion Board


Logan Nelson
PBR Georgia Staff

 Statesboro, GA - The PBR Georgia Staff traveled to Georgia Southern University for the second stop on the campus tour. This event was an opportunity to see a talented group from the area. We saw players from 2027-2024 grads. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60 yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw short bullpens with Trackman. There here were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Sunday.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for these events, we take a look back at some of the leaders from Blast Motion recorded from the event.

4 Dalton Redmond GA South Effingham 2025 SS 18.1 g
5 Jake Spurlin GA Tift County 2027 SS 17.6 g

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
