2025 Futures Prospect Games: Blast Motion Board


Kevin Cronin
Area Scout

On Wednesday, July 7, the PBR Illinois staff traveled to Ozinga Field in Crestwood, IL, to host the 2025 Top Prospect Games. This 2025 invite only event helped sort out the top prospects in the state at an earlier age as well as serving as a last chance identifier for the Junior Future Games at LakePoint in Cartersville, GA, July 29-Aug1.

Shortly after the event's conclusion our scouting staff published a Quick Hits piece, highlighting several standouts from the day. We previously rolled out a full analysis of the traditional statistics gathered from that event inside our statistical analysis and we also took a look at the pitch metrics, as well as batted ball data, with the help of our TrackMan units inside of our TrackMan Files.

Today, with the help of our Blast Motion sensors, we're analyzing the swing metrics measured on Saturday at this high-caliber showcase, wrapping up our post-event coverage.

Hand Speed (Peak & Average)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (max)
1 Brady Booth IL Tremont 2025 RHP 26.30 mph
2 Vincent Ippolito IL Willowbrook 2025 C 25.50 mph
3 Henry Murray IL Lane Tech 2025 OF 25.20 mph
4 Benjamin Mitchell IL Harvest Christian Academy 2025 C 23.80 mph
5 Liam Arsich IL Lincoln-Way Central 2025 OF 23.40 mph
6 Ezra Essex IL Marian Catholic 2025 OF 23.10 mph
7 Alek Terlecki IL Glenwood 2025 1B 23.00 mph
8 Jimmy Downs IL Brother Rice 2025 3B 22.90 mph
9 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 22.70 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (avg)
1 Brady Booth IL Tremont 2025 RHP 24.19 mph
2 Henry Murray IL Lane Tech 2025 OF 23.44 mph
3 Vincent Ippolito IL Willowbrook 2025 C 23.08 mph
4 Benjamin Mitchell IL Harvest Christian Academy 2025 C 22.79 mph
5 Aidan Nohava IL Brother Rice 2025 1B 21.54 mph
6 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 21.23 mph
7 Connor Gibour IL Crystal Lake Central 2025 OF 21.08 mph
8 Alek Terlecki IL Glenwood 2025 1B 20.86 mph
9 Easton Ruby IL Oswego East 2025 C 20.86 mph
10 Omar Coleman IL Plainfield North 2025 2B 20.82 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 AJ Putty IL Huntley 2025 3B 71.08 mph
2 Vincent Ippolito IL Willowbrook 2025 C 68.22 mph
3 Henry Murray IL Lane Tech 2025 OF 67.93 mph
4 John McAuliffe IL Marist 2025 C 67.47 mph
5 Brady Rosenkranz IL Stevenson 2025 RHP 65.65 mph
6 Ezra Essex IL Marian Catholic 2025 OF 65.61 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 Henry Murray IL Lane Tech 2025 OF 30.10 g
2 Brady Booth IL Tremont 2025 RHP 28.30 g
3 Evan Stinson IL Kenwood 2025 OF 20.40 g
4 John McAuliffe IL Marist 2025 C 20.10 g
5 Aadden Guerrero IL Lyons Township 2025 SS 19.90 g

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Henry Murray IL Lane Tech 2025 OF 20.81 g
2 Brady Booth IL Tremont 2025 RHP 20.54 g
3 Evan Stinson IL Kenwood 2025 OF 18.41 g
4 John McAuliffe IL Marist 2025 C 17.98 g
5 Aadden Guerrero IL Lyons Township 2025 SS 17.61 g
6 Connor Gibour IL Crystal Lake Central 2025 OF 16.36 g
7 Omar Coleman IL Plainfield North 2025 2B 15.31 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.
