West Georgia Campus Tour: Blast Motion Board


Logan Nelson
PBR Georgia Staff

 Carrolton, GA - The PBR Georgia Staff traveled to West Georgia University for the first 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.

4 Shawn Blassingill GA Kell 2025 OF 22.9 mph
5 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 22.9 mph

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 Ty Willoughby GA Carrolton 2026 1B 78.5 mph
2 Torin Hamilton GA Hillgrove 2024 RHP 75.6 mph
3 Kaleb Binion GA Carrollton 2026 OF 75.1 mph
4 Evan Moody GA Carrollton 2026 OF 74.7 mph
5 Rob Skinner GA LaGrange 2025 3B 74.3 mph
6 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 74.2 mph
7 Robert Parker GA LaGrange 2024 SS 73.4 mph
8 Cooper Stephens GA Lagrange 2025 1B 72.4 mph
9 Grayson White GA Baconton Charter 2025 C 71.1 mph
10 Shawn Blassingill GA Kell 2025 OF 71.0 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 Evan Moody GA Carrollton 2026 OF 34.7 g
2 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 27.1 g
3 Rob Skinner GA LaGrange 2025 3B 25.6 g
4 Brandon Bennett GA LaGrange 2025 1B 23.4 g
5 Robert Parker GA LaGrange 2024 SS 22.6 g

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Evan Moody GA Carrollton 2026 OF 31.5 g
2 Makale Harris GA Crawford 2025 1B 23.2 g
3 Rob Skinner GA LaGrange 2025 3B 21.7 g
4 Brandon Bennett GA LaGrange 2025 1B 17.9 g
5 Robert Parker GA LaGrange 2024 SS 17.1 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.
