Mid-South Preseason ID: TrackMan Files

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.

Kicking off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the top performers from the event.

MAX FASTBALL VELOCITY & AVERAGE SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 90.4 mph
2 Ridge Harvey TN Collierville High School 2025 LHP 86.5 mph
3 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 85.4 mph
4 Ty Holman TN Christian Brothers High School 2027 SS 83.8 mph
5 Bradley Stubbs TN Collierville 2026 SS 83.2 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 2448 rpm
2 Ridge Harvey TN Collierville High School 2025 LHP 2246 rpm
3 Hunter Harkness TN Tipton-Rosemark Academy 2025 RHP 2173 rpm
4 Ty Holman TN Christian Brothers High School 2027 SS 2067 rpm
5 Hudson Rushing TN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF JACKSON 2027 OF 2056 rpm

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

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.

AVERAGE FASTBALL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Ty Holman TN Christian Brothers High School 2027 SS 18.4
2 Ian Chambers TN Collierville 2025 OF 14.3
3 Chase Armistead TN Collierville 2027 RHP 12.1
4 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 10.4
5 Conner Palmer TN Collierville 2026 1B 9.6

Horizontal Break: Outlined on TrackMan’s own website: “... horizontal movement is measured in inches between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.”

AVERAGE SLIDER SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 2724
2 Ridge Harvey TN Collierville High School 2025 LHP 2539
3 Hudson Rushing TN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF JACKSON 2027 OF 2058
4 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 2057
5 Hunter Harkness TN Tipton-Rosemark Academy 2025 RHP 2019

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CURVEBALL SPIN RATE

Rank Name State School Class Pos Spin Rate (avg)
1 Bradley Stubbs TN Collierville 2026 SS 2352 rpm
2 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 1998 rpm
3 Christian Hare MS Magnolia Heights 2026 2B 1951 rpm
4 Hayden Lundine MS Marshall Academy 2025 OF 1793 rpm
5 Chase Armistead TN Collierville 2027 RHP 1758 rpm

Spin Rate: The metric calculates how fast the ball is spinning as it leaves the pitcher’s hand, reported in the number of times the pitched ball would spin per minute (“revolutions per minute” or “rpm”).

AVERAGE CHANGEUP HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Lance Bryan TN Briarcrest Christian 2025 RHP 18.9
2 Ty Holman TN Christian Brothers High School 2027 SS 18.7
3 Hunter Harkness TN Tipton-Rosemark Academy 2025 RHP 16.7
4 Bradley Stubbs TN Collierville 2026 SS 16.5
5 Christian Hare MS Magnolia Heights 2026 2B 13.3

Horizontal Break: This metric measures the distance, measured in inches, between where the pitch actually crosses the front of home plate side-wise, and where it would have crossed home plate side-wise if had it traveled in a perfectly straight line from release. A positive number means the break was to the right from the pitcher’s perspective, while a negative number means the break was to the left from the pitcher’s perspective.

PEAK EXIT VELOCITY (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (max)
1 Ian Chambers TN Collierville 2025 OF 100.6 mph
2 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 95.4 mph
3 Christian Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2026 SS 94.8 mph
4 Jordan Williamson TN Dyersburg 2024 3B 93.2 mph
5 JD Whitworth TN Collierville 2025 SS 92.0 mph

Exit Velocity: This metric measures the speed of the ball, measured in miles per hour, as it comes off the bat at the moment of contact.

PEAK ESTIMATED BATTED DISTANCE (HITTING)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 Ian Chambers TN Collierville 2025 OF 371 ft
2 JD Whitworth TN Collierville 2025 SS 341 ft
3 Caleb Doty TN Lausanne Collegiate 2025 3B 329 ft
4 Halton Donnelly TN Christian Brothers 2025 OF 319 ft
5 Jordan Williamson TN Dyersburg 2024 3B 318 ft

Distance: This metric measures the estimated “carry flat” distance, measured in feet, meaning the distance that the ball travels before it lands, or would have landed if it were not caught or obstructed.
