 We would like to thank all who participated in PBR Ohio's 2020 Central Ohio Top Prospect Games. This was a great opportunity for the class of 2021-2024 prospects to be put on college radars. Many players impressed during their individual workouts at the showcase. Below we have the complete statistical results from the event as well as the top performers across various different categories.

2020 Central Ohio Top Prospect Games - Advanced Hitting Metrics

Notes:

  • Recorded metrics are based off of Trackman and Blast technology.
  • Exit Velocity:  Exit Velo is the speed of the baseball as it comes off the bat after contact.

Fastball Spin Rates

The average fastball spin rate at the MLB level can range from 2050-2250 rpm. The average at the high school level will be lower, but can be hard to track as most pitchers that are getting spin rate readings, are typically more advanced. When looking at fastball spin rates, coaches and scouts are looking for pitchers that are outside the norm. High spin rate fastball, typically, tend to ride on hitter, creating swing and miss, and playing at the top of the strike zone. Low spin rate guys, typically, are creating some sink on their fastball, or the appearance that the fastball is diving.

The pure spin rate does not tell the whole story on any one pitch. Coaches and scouts are also evaluating spin efficiency and spin direction. They also want to see some consistency, pitch-to-pitch, on the release point. To learn more about Trackman data and what it all means, click here.

Name Position School Class Total Spin
Jack Christian RHP Marysville 2021 2193-2418
Carter Rees RHP Ben Logan 2021 1997-2367
Alijah Evans RHP Crestline 2022 2194-2343
Jake Johnson RHP Medina 2021 2192-2317
Dylan Bernard RHP Miami Trace 2021 2034-2283

Fastball Horizontal Break

Horizontal break is the distance, 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.

Name Position School Class Horizontal Break
Nick Falter RHP Olentangy Liberty 2021 16.5in
Alijah Evans RHP Crestline 2022 14.7in
Wyatt Groves LHP Highland 2021 -14.7in
Drew Beckner LHP Big Walnut 2021 -14in
Nicolas Lavelle RHP Hilliard Davidson 2021 13.4in
Aiden Kersten RHP Marysville STEM 2023 13.4in

Fastball Vertical Break

Vertical break is the distance, measured in inches, between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate height-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate height-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release, but affected by gravity.

Drew Beckner LHP Big Walnut 2021 21.2in
Alijah Evans RHP Crestline 2022 21.2in
Hayden Bucher RHP DeSales 2022 19.2in
Nick Falter RHP Olentangy Liberty 2021 18.7in
Christian Gulgin RHP Perrysburg 2021 18.5in

Breaking Ball Spin Rates

Typically bigger spin can mean bigger break, but again on the breaking ball the spin efficiency can play a part. There are also studies that show the speed of the pitch can affect if the spin rate has a chance to take hold and create the break a pitcher is looking for.
