Magnolia State Games: Outfielder Reports


Matt Miller
State Director

Clinton, MS - The Magnolia State Games was held on Tuesday, June 21st and Wednesday, June 22nd at Mississippi College in Clinton, MS. This event consisted of some of the top prospects from the 2023-2027 classes. These players went through a pro-style workout and took batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion to record hitting metrics. Pitchers were able to throw in a modified game setting and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There 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 at the event.
