PBR Nevada State Games: Blast Motion Leaderboard


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

With the PBR Nevada State Games in the books, we now turn our focus to the post event coverage where we will be breaking down the events standout performances, positional statistical leaderboards and pitcher leaderboards as well as sending out invitations to represent Nevada at both the 2022 PBR Future Games (2024/2025) and the 2022 PBR West Coast Games (2023). 

At the PBR Nevada State Games, 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.

We continue our breakdown of the standout performances from the PBR Nevada State Games with the Blast Motion Leaderboard, highlighting the top swing metrics collected from the event.

PBR Nevada STATE GAMES: BLAST MOTION LEADERBOARD

About Blast Motion:

One of the important tools Prep Baseball Report has implemented at its events is the use of Blast Motion sensors. During batting practice, 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: 79.6 mph | Brady Dallimore, 2025 (Uncommitted)

Top Average Bat Speed: 75 mph | Andrew Overland, 2023 (Uncommitted)

Top Peak Hand Speed: 25 mph | Brock Barlow, 2024 (Uncommitted)

Top Average Hand Speed: 24.4 mph | Takeo Cervantez, 2024 (Uncommitted)

On-Plane Efficiency: 92% | Brayden Sakowski, 2025 (Uncommitted)

Rotational Acceleration: 23.9 g | Brayden Sakowski, 2025 (Uncommitted)

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

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

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
