Nashville Open + Rising Stars: TrackMan Files


PBR Tennessee Staff

On July 13th the PBR Tennessee staff hosted the Nashville Open + Rising Stars event at Friendship Christian High School, 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 Lance Angell TN Beech 2023 RHP 86.2 mph
2 Ben LaLance TN Siegel 2023 RHP 85.7 mph
3 Lake Morris TN Hendersonville 2024 LHP 84.0 mph
4 Patrick Freeman TN Oakland 2026 SS 82.8 mph
5 Tyler Wilson TN Middle Tennessee Christian 2024 C 82.7 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 Tyler Wilson TN Middle Tennessee Christian 2024 C 2423 rpm
2 Patrick Freeman TN Oakland 2026 SS 2378 rpm
3 Connor Barrett TN Central Magnet 2023 RHP 2319 rpm
4 Tyson Henderlight TN Goodpasture Christian 2024 SS 2287 rpm
5 Lake Morris TN Hendersonville 2024 LHP 2272 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.
