Kennesaw State Campus Tour: Blast Motion Board


Logan Nelson
PBR Georgia Staff

 Kennesaw, GA - The PBR Georgia Staff traveled to Kennesaw State University for the last 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 Saturday.

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.

Peak Hand Speed: The observed maximum speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge.

BAT SPEED (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Kurtis Maher GA Denmark 2026 LHP 74.4 mph
2 Patrick Honeyman GA Kell High School 2026 LHP 72.7 mph
3 Marcus Ward GA Kings Ridge Christian 2026 OF 72.6 mph
4 Ben Fussell GA Coffee 2026 SS 72.6 mph
5 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 71.9 mph
6 JC Slavis GA Pope 2026 3B 71.3 mph
7 Daniel Gilroy GA South Forsyth 2026 1B 68.2 mph
8 Logan Pogorzelski GA Archer 2025 OF 68.1 mph
9 Dalton Redmond GA South Effingham 2025 SS 67.6 mph
10 Aidan Harris GA Ola 2025 OF 67.3 mph

Bat Speed: The observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. The sweet spot of the bat is measured six inches from the tip of the bat.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (PEAK & AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (max)
1 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 28.4 g
2 Logan Pogorzelski GA Archer 2025 OF 27.6 g
3 Aidan Harris GA Ola 2025 OF 23.7 g
4 Ben Fussell GA Coffee 2026 SS 23.3 g
5 Kade Thompson GA Tattnall Square Academy 2025 OF 22.9 g

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 21.4 g
2 Logan Pogorzelski GA Archer 2025 OF 20.8 g
3 Aidan Harris GA Ola 2025 OF 20.1 g
4 Ben Fussell GA Coffee 2026 SS 18.7 g
5 Kade Thompson GA Tattnall Square Academy 2025 OF 17.9 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.
