Mid-South Preseason ID: Data Dive, Position Players

COLLIERVILLE, TN - The Mid-South Preseason ID was held on Saturday, January 27th at Collierville High School's Indoor Facility. This event was an open event that consisted of players from the 2024-2028 classes from Volunteer state. Players went through an extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60-yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to get numbers and metrics on TrackMan. 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 at the event.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at the top data and metrics from the event.

4 Sammy Greene MS Oxford 2025 2B 7.11 s
5 Carson Allen MS Bayou 2024 OF 7.15 s

10-YARD SPLIT

Rank Name State School Class Pos 10-yd

Traditionally, the 60-yard dash has been the in-event standard to help measure a player's speed tool. While the measurement still has its utility, the 10-yard split has started to become more and more applicable in determining the player's burst and reaction time in-game, whether that's in the outfield or on the basepaths.

BLAST MOTION

HAND SPEED (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (avg)
1 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 23.3 mph
2 JD Whitworth TN Collierville 2025 SS 22.5 mph

4 Ian Chambers TN Collierville 2025 OF 21.5 mph
5 Jordan Williamson TN Dyersburg 2024 3B 21.4 mph

Hand Speed: The observed speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge.

BAT SPEED (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Ian Chambers TN Collierville 2025 OF 77.5 mph
2 Christian Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2026 SS 71.6 mph
3 Harris Fisher TN Lipscomb Academy 2027 C 70.0 mph
4 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 69.5 mph
5 Halton Donnelly TN Christian Brothers 2025 OF 68.1 mph

Bat Speed: The observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. The sweet spot of the bat is measured six inches from the tip of the bat.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (avg)
1 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 25.1 g
2 JD Whitworth TN Collierville 2025 SS 23.8 g
3 Brian King II TN Bartlett High School 2026 OF 23.7 g
4 Gage Nesbitt TN South Gibson County High School 2025 3B 19.4 g
5 Christian Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2026 SS 18.3 g

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score out of 100 that takes the core-six visual skills into account, providing athletes, parents, coaches and scouts with a benchmark number for assessing an athlete’s overall visual ability. In general the higher the Edge Score, the higher chance of athletic success. Think of the Edge Score as the 'Sixth Metric' in the standard Five-Tools that make up a ball player.

The average Edge Score for the 2020 MLB Draft Class was 79.3 (of hitters who completed a Vizual Edge test). MLB players we've worked with typically show stronger scores, with elite hitters scoring consistently above 87.0 on their Edge Score.
