Northern Nevada Fall ID: Pitching Data Dive

On Saturday, November 11th, the PBR Nevada staff hosted it's final ID event of the year with the Northern Nevada Fall ID hosted at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School in Reno, Nevada. This event featured roughly 30 players from the Northern part of the State 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. Now, we will take a further in-depth look at the top pitchers with the help of our tech partnerships, broken down by the categories down below:

FASTBALL

MAX VELOCITY (MPH)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Jackson Trueblood NV Spanish Springs 2026 RHP 85.9 mph
2 Ty Ramsey NV McQueen 2025 SS 82.5 mph
3 Duncan DeLange NV Douglas 2025 RHP 81.9 mph
4 Mac Vandegrift NV Reno 2026 3B 80.7 mph
5 Jordan Sieben NV Carson 2024 RHP 79.7 mph

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

SPIN RATE (AVG)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Ty Ramsey NV McQueen 2025 SS 2206 rpm
2 Jackson Trueblood NV Spanish Springs 2026 RHP 2181 rpm
3 Nolan Yount NV Bishop Manogue 2026 RHP 1951 rpm
4 Jordan Sieben NV Carson 2024 RHP 1890 rpm
5 Slade Morin NV Bishop Manogue Catholic 2026 LHP 1826 rpm

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.

INDUCED VERTICAL BREAK (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Jackson Trueblood NV Spanish Springs 2026 RHP 18.1 in
2 Chance Kirby NV Bishop Manogue 2026 RHP 15.6 in
3 Jayden Peters NV Edward C. Reed 2026 LHP 14.2 in
4 Mac Vandegrift NV Reno 2026 3B 13.9 in
5 Nolan Yount NV Bishop Manogue 2026 RHP 13.4 in

Induced Vertical Break: Used in short form as "IVB," this metric is most important on fastballs for creating rise and on curveballs for creating depth – it can also have some use when measuring sliders and cutters as well. Sliders tend to be closer to zero inches while cutters are generally between 5 and 15 inches. Usually fastballs and curveballs with large IVB have higher spin efficiencies as well. Sliders generally have very little (closer to zero) IVB and very low spin efficiency. You could also categorize IVB into spin rate as this is part of the “useful movement” you’re looking for. IVB is also a huge part of the vertical approach angle.

HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Nolan Yount NV Bishop Manogue 2026 RHP 15.2
2 Mac Vandegrift NV Reno 2026 3B 11.4
3 Chance Kirby NV Bishop Manogue 2026 RHP 11.1
4 Jackson Trueblood NV Spanish Springs 2026 RHP 10.5
5 Duncan DeLange NV Douglas 2025 RHP 10.4

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.”
