Gulf Coast Open: TrackMan Files


PBR Mississippi Staff

On September 24th the PBR Mississippi staff hosted the Gulf Coast Open at MGM Park in Biloxi, MS, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2023-2026 classes. Inside today’s TrackMan Files, we’re highlighting the top performers from this event from the data and metrics from our TrackMan unit.

Earlier this week we published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event. We also rolled out a Statistical Leaderboard pointing out the top recorded stats by category.

Now we'll continue to roll out the data we gathered from this event, starting with the analytics we have at our disposal from our TrackMan unit. Below we'll look at which players had noteworthy batted ball and pitch metric data.

MAX FASTBALL

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Jake Landgrave MS Saint Patrick 2023 SS 82.6 mph
2 Tolar Raybourn MS Gulfport 2025 RHP 80.9 mph
3 Logan McNamara LA Mandeville 2025 RHP 79.2 mph

Max Fastball Velocity: This metric calculates the speed of the pitch as it’s released from the pitcher’s hand.

PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Jake Landgrave MS Saint Patrick 2023 SS 2245 rpm
2 Logan McNamara LA Mandeville 2025 RHP 2207 rpm
3 Tolar Raybourn MS Gulfport 2025 RHP 2078 rpm

Spin Rate: This metric calculates the rate of spin on the baseball as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Historical data shows that high-spin fastballs lessen the impact of gravity, allowing for more ‘rise’ (or less fall, in other words) as it carries through the zone. Low-spin fastballs typically indicate the pitch has greater horizontal action, often making it tougher to square up, but generally easier to make contact with, leading to more ground balls, while high-spin fastballs show a correlation with swings and misses.
