Idaho Falls Preseason ID: Positional Data Dive


Cam Black-Araujo
Idaho Operations

On Saturday, February 10th, the Prep Baseball Idaho staff hosted it's first event of the 2024 season with the Idaho Falls Preseason ID hosted at Bobcat Fieldhouse in Rexburg, Idaho. This event featured 35+ players from the Idaho Falls area in the 2024 - 2028 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look and analysis of the players in attendance.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Quick Hits, Statistical Analysis and Pitching Data Dive articles. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top position players and metrics with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

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.
