Mississippi Preseason All-State: TrackMan Pitching Files

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.

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

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.

AVERAGE FASTBALL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Brady Holmes MS Clinton 2027 RHP 18.5
2 Cayden Prestage MS Itawamba 2026 OF -15.9
3 Tyner Flynt MS Presbyterian Christian 2026 OF -15.5
4 Wes Pritchard MS Lamar School 2024 LHP -15.4
5 Matthew McKinley MS JACKSON PREPARATORY SCHOOL 2025 LHP -13.7

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”

4 Kellen Garcia MS Sumrall 2025 SS 2252
5 Jackson Meehan MS NORTHWEST RANKIN HIGH SCHOOL 2026 SS 2081

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).
