Idaho Falls Open / Bandits Scout Day: Blast Leaderboards


Brett Harrison
PBR Scouting Director

The Idaho Falls Open / Bandits Scout Day is in the books and now we move into the post event coverage, breaking down and highlighting the standouts from the event with Quick Hits, Stat Leaderboards, Blast Motion Leaderboards and Pitching Leaderboards. 

At this event, we retrieved a significant amount of data on each player including: 60 Times measured by Swift Syncro, Batting Practice measured by TrackMan, Catch Pop Time and Velocity, Outfield Evaluation and Velocity, Infield Evaluation and Velocity and Pitcher Bullpens analyzed and assessed by TrackMan. We pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology in the game to provide the most accurate data for both the player and those recruiting/evaluating the player.

Next, in our post event coverage we highlighting in-swing metrics collected from the Idaho Falls Open / Bandits Scout Day with the Blast Leaderboards.

About Blast Motion:

The Blast Motion sensors measure Swing and Impact Metrics across several categories. Swing metrics measure pre-impact mechanics centered around plane, connection, and rotation while Impact metrics measure pre-impact performance outcomes based on ball contact.

HERE ARE THE TOP METRICS OF THE EVENT:

Top Peak Bat Speed: 79.9 mph | Brody Jacksha - Belgrade (MT) | 2023 | Uncommitted
Top Average Bat Speed: 76.5 mph | Brody Jacksha - Belgrade (MT) | 2023 | Uncommitted
Top Peak Hand Speed: 24.9 mph | Jaxson Kasel - Twin Falls | 2026 | Uncommitted
Top Average Hand Speed: 24.0 mph | Jaxson Kasel - Twin Falls | 2026 | Uncommitted
On-Plane Efficiency: 89% | Joseph Madsen - Rigby | 2026 | Uncommitted
Rotational Acceleration: 22.1 g | Ethan Garner - Madison | 2024 Uncommitted

Below will you find the swing & impact metrics from the event in four different categories (Top-10 listed):

PEAK HAND SPEED

Peak Hand Speed is the observed maximum 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. For more info: Peak Hand Speed

MLB Avg: 23-29 mph MiLB Avg: 22-28 mph College Avg: 21-24 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (max)

ON PLANE EFFICIENCY

Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat. For more info: On Plane Efficiency

Ideal Efficiency %: 70% or Higher    Range: 65%-85%

Rank Name State School Class Pos On Plane Eff (avg)
1 Joseph Madsen ID Rigby 2026 LHP 89 %
2 Gabriel Barnes ID Thunder Ridge 2027 1B 87 %
3 Aaron Archibald ID Rigby 2023 OF 86 %
4 Jaxson Kasel ID Twin Falls 2026 RHP 83 %
5 Brayden Nickels ID Skyline 2024 C 80 %
6 Jayce Vaughan ID Pocatello 2023 SS 79 %
7 Ethan Garner ID Madison 2024 OF 77 %
8 James Madsen ID Rigby 2023 RHP 76 %
9 Elyjah Rudd ID Bonneville 2025 OF 76 %
10 Trayson Kostial ID Madison 2023 SS 76 %

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION

Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations. For more info: Rotational Acceleration

MLB Avg: 16.8 g   MiLB Avg: 12.6 g   College Avg: 12.9 g

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Ethan Garner ID Madison 2024 OF 22.1 g
