GALLATIN, TN - The Tennessee Preseason All-State was held on Saturday, February 10th at Liberty Creek HS in Gallatin, TN. This event was an invite-only event that consisted of players from the 2024-2027 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 at some of the standouts and top performers from the event.

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 Corbin Crosby TN Lipscomb Academy 2025 LHP -15.5
2 Gavin True TN East Robertson 2025 RHP 14.2
3 Hiram Lewis TN Ravenwood High School 2025 RHP 14.0
4 Cael Allen TN Collierville 2025 3B 13.3
5 Nolan Bethel TN Loudon 2025 RHP 11.7

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 Ari Bethea TN Collierville 2025 RHP 2526
2 Hiram Lewis TN Ravenwood High School 2025 RHP 2370
3 William Bobo TN Shelbyville Central 2025 OF 2311
4 Gavin True TN East Robertson 2025 RHP 2296
5 Cy Stephens TN Oak Ridge 2025 LHP 2268

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 Ari Bethea TN Collierville 2025 RHP 2610 rpm
2 William Bobo TN Shelbyville Central 2025 OF 2368 rpm
3 Ayden Jacobs TN Collierville 2025 RHP 2220 rpm
4 Cooper McCandless TN Beech 2025 LHP 1736 rpm
5 Carson Pack TN Oakland 2025 RHP 1683 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 Jake McKinney TN Friendship Christian 2025 RHP 17.6
2 Ethan Adams TN Fairview 2025 2B 17.0
3 Cael Allen TN Collierville 2025 3B 15.9
4 Gavin True TN East Robertson 2025 RHP 13.6
5 Alec Wilson TN Upperman 2025 RHP 12.3

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.

9 Cael Allen TN Collierville 2025 3B 95.7 mph
10 Ben Kauffman TN Cannon County 2025 1B 94.6 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 Nate Webb TN Pope John Paul II 2025 1B 387 ft

9 Ben Kauffman TN Cannon County 2025 1B 336 ft
10 Cy Stephens TN Oak Ridge 2025 LHP 334 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.
