Lebanon, TN - The Tennessee State Games was held on September 17th and 18th at Friendship Christian School in Lebanon, TN. This event was an open event that consisted of prospects from the 2023-2026 classes. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, participated in defensive evaluations, ran the 60 yard-dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated outings during gameplay and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing on Sunday.

Wrapping up our post-event coverage for the event, we take a look at the individual scouting reports for all pitchers in attendance. Be sure to check out our news feed for all reports on infielders, outfielders and catchers from the event.
