Mississippi Preseason All-State: Data Dive, Position Players

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.

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. While the measurement still has its utility, the 10-yard split has started to become more and more applicable in determining the player's burst and reaction time in-game, whether that's in the outfield or on the basepaths.

BLAST MOTION

HAND SPEED (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (avg)
1 Jackson Moore MS Tishomingo County 2025 3B 23.8 mph
2 Samuel Miller MS Jackson Prep 2027 3B 23.7 mph
3 Dylan Lamb MS St. Stanislaus 2024 OF 23.4 mph
4 Nash McCrary MS Heritage Academy 2026 RHP 23.1 mph
5 Parker Thames MS Clinton 2025 OF 23.0 mph

Hand Speed: The observed 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 (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Jackson Moore MS Tishomingo County 2025 3B 81.5 mph
2 Brody Roberts MS Manchester Academy 2025 RHP 75.1 mph
3 Jason Neal MS Bayou Academy 2024 SS 74.7 mph
4 Stone Crain MS Clinton 2026 C 74.1 mph
5 Gardner Young MS Jackson Prep 2025 LHP 74.0 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 (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Parker Thames MS Clinton 2025 OF 24.5 g
2 Stone Crain MS Clinton 2026 C 23.6 g
3 Samuel Miller MS Jackson Prep 2027 3B 22.5 g
4 Ryder White MS Pisgah 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.


VIZUAL EDGE

EDGE SCORES

Rank Name State School Class Pos Edge Score
1 Nash McCrary MS Heritage Academy 2026 RHP 85.26
2 Adyn Westmoreland MS Heritage Academy 2025 OF 82.48
3 Miller Shy MS Starkville Academy 2026 OF 82.00
4 Caden Nelson MS Lewisburg 2026 SS 80.26
5 Brody Roberts MS Manchester Academy 2025 RHP 80.18
6 Gardner Young MS Jackson Prep 2025 LHP 80.01
7 Brayden Johnson MS Clinton 2026 OF 79.68
8 Kellen Garcia MS Sumrall 2025 SS 77.33
9 Tyner Flynt MS Presbyterian Christian 2026 OF 77.08
10 Crews Albritton MS Tri-County Academy 2027 OF 76.12

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score out of 100 that takes the core-six visual skills into account, providing athletes, parents, coaches and scouts with a benchmark number for assessing an athlete’s overall visual ability. In general the higher the Edge Score, the higher chance of athletic success. Think of the Edge Score as the 'Sixth Metric' in the standard Five-Tools that make up a ball player.

The average Edge Score for the 2020 MLB Draft Class was 79.3 (of hitters who completed a Vizual Edge test). MLB players we've worked with typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
