Mississippi Preseason All-State: Blast Motion Board

CLINTON, MS - The Mississippi Preseason All-State was held on Saturday, January 27th at Clinton High School in Clinton, MS. This event was an invote-only event that consisted of some prospects from the 2024-2028 classes across all parts of Mississippi. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics via TrackMan. 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.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the top performers and standouts from Saturday. Continuing over the course of the next week or so, we will release different statistical leaderboards for the event along with other pieces of content.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (PEAK & AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (max)
1 Samuel Miller MS Jackson Prep 2027 3B 29.0 g
2 Stone Crain MS Clinton 2026 C 28.9 g
3 Parker Thames MS Clinton 2025 OF 27.3 g

3 Samuel Miller MS Jackson Prep 2027 3B 22.5 g
4 Ryder White MS PISGAH HIGH SCHOOL 2026 OF 21.2 g
5 Brayden Johnson MS Hartfield Academy 2025 OF 20.7 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.
