Preseason All-State (Upperclass): Blast Leaderboard


Brett Thorney
Arizona Scouting Director

The high school baseball season in Arizona is coming up quickly with many prospects around the state gearing up for their seasons. PBR Arizona had a chance to hold its annual Preseason All-State on January 30th, which is one of the biggest events of the year in Arizona. The two-day invite only event features some of the top prospects from around the state coming from the 2021-2025 grad classes. The event was broadcasted live in order for coaches, scouts and fans to see the action all over the country. This invite only event continues to be a huge identifier of prospects in Arizona and to get quality prospect updates on players we have seen in the past. This event has also played a big role on which prospects will secure their invitation to represent Team Arizona at the PBR Future Games later in the summer.

The Preseason All-State Games featured over 65 prospects from the 2021-2022 grad classes from all across the state of Arizona with a few players trickling in from border states and even Hawaii. This event has become a must attend event as players go into their high school seasons. 

ABOUT BLAST MOTION:

Since the beginning of the summer, one of the important tools Prep Baseball Report has started to implement 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 DAY:

Top AVG Bat Speed: 76.30mph | 2022 1B Dante Turgeon (Ben Franklin)

Top PEAK Hand Speed: 26.65mph | 2022 1B Dante Turgeon (Ben Franklin)

On-Plane Efficiency: 88% | 2022 OF Mason Saint Hillarie (Ironwood Ridge)

Rotational Acceleration: 25.28g | 2021 1B David Sobeck (Desert Ridge)
