Las Vegas Fall ID: Positional Data Dive


Cam Black-Araujo
Nevada Operations

On Sunday, October 15th, the PBR Nevada staff hosted it's first open event of the fall season with the Las Vegas Fall ID hosted on the campus of UNLV at Earl E. Wilson Baseball Stadium. This event featured 30 players from the Las Vegas area in the 2024 - 2027 classes and allowed our staff an opportunity to get an in-depth look and analysis of the players in attendance.

Earlier this week, we broke down the top measurable data performers from the event with our Statistical Analysis and Pitching Data Dive. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top position players and metrics with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

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 Benjamin Lovering NV Faith Lutheran 2024 OF 22.7 g

9 Hunter Sarver NV Spring Valley 2024 RHP 10.7 g
10 Hudson Inouye NV Coronado 2026 RHP 10.7 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.
