Middle Tennessee Open + Rising Stars: TrackMan Files


PBR Tennessee Staff

On June 28th the PBR Tennessee staff hosted the Middle Tennessee Open + Rising Stars event at Columbia State Community College, featuring many of the state’s top players inside the 2023-2027 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 Riley Martin TN Smith County 2027 RHP 85.1 mph
2 Colie Reynolds TN Clarksville 2026 RHP 81.3 mph
3 Lane Estes TN Chester County 2027 RHP 79.6 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 Mason Beers TN Scotts Hill 2027 LHP 2308 rpm
2 Riley Martin TN Smith County 2027 RHP 2307 rpm
3 Jacob Woodward TN Columbia Academy 2025 OF 2251 rpm
4 Ashton Blesie TN Nolensville 2025 RHP 2232 rpm
5 Nolan Brister TN Spring Hill 2026 OF 2214 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.
