Hunter Pence Scout Day - TrackMan Files


PBR Texas Staff

HOUSTON, TX -  This past weekend, PBR Texas made its way to The University of Houston for a two day event with Hunter Pence Baseball Academy. Players from all high school classes, and a few select 2027's were in attendance for a pro style workout on Saturday. Following the workout, the 2026s went straight into gameplay following the workout. Sunday consisted of three more games for the 2025s, 2024s and 2023s. Today, we take a closer look at the data measured by our TackMan units over the weekend.

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 Ian Standlee TX Klein Cain 2024 RHP 19.9
2 Jameson Dodge TX Tomball Memorial 2026 OF -17.7
3 Kade Jeffers TX The Woodlands College Park 2023 RHP 17.0
4 Ethan Farris TX Cypress Woods 2023 SS 16.8
5 Mason Flores TX Tomball Memorial 2026 2B 16.6

9 Joseph 'Dane' LeMaster TX The Woodlands Christian 2023 RHP 16.0
10 Tyler Sunseri TX The Woodlands 2023 RHP 15.5

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.”
