Memphis Open + Rising Stars: TrackMan Files


Colin Chamblin
Manager, Deep South Operations

On July 12th the PBR Tennessee staff hosted the Memphis Open + Rising Stars event at Collierville High School, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2023-2026 classes. Inside today’s TrackMan Files, we’re highlighting the top performers from this event from the data and metrics from our TrackMan unit.

Earlier this week we published Quick Hits highlighting the top prospects of the event. We also rolled out a Statistical Leaderboard pointing out the top recorded stats by category.

Now we'll continue to roll out the data we gathered from this event, starting with the analytics we have at our disposal from our TrackMan unit. Below we'll look at which players had noteworthy batted ball and pitch metric data.

 

MAX FASTBALL

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Eli DeBerry TN Arlington 2024 RHP 87.3 mph
2 Jack Hibbard TN Arlington 2024 RHP 84.0 mph
3 Collin Tobin TN Christian Brothers 2025 OF 81.9 mph
4 Britt Fowler TN Arlington 2024 RHP 81.2 mph
5 Connor Stevens TN Christian Brothers 2023 RHP 80.7 mph

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

PEAK SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (max)
1 Eli DeBerry TN Arlington 2024 RHP 2435 rpm
2 Jack Hibbard TN Arlington 2024 RHP 2352 rpm
3 Collin Tobin TN Christian Brothers 2025 OF 2317 rpm
4 Britt Fowler TN Arlington 2024 RHP 2310 rpm
5 Connor Stevens TN Christian Brothers 2023 RHP 2289 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.
