DFW Fall ID: Data Dive


PBR Texas Staff

TEXAS - On 10/21, we made our way to Weatherford College for the DFW Fall ID. The day consisted of players running the 60, throwing from defensive positions, then taking BP. Both days were capped off with the pitchers throwing bullpens. Today, we take a closer look at the top metrics with the help from our tech partners.

EXIT VELOCITY (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Exit Velocity (avg)
1 Matthew Hutchinson TX Lake Highlands 2025 OF 101.1 mph
2 Cade Moore TX Carthage 2025 C 92.6 mph
3 Dylan Duran TX Aledo 2026 3B 89.8 mph
4 Dylon Myrow TX Eaton 2024 SS 89.1 mph
5 Gage Belknap TX Hebron 2025 1B 88.8 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.

BATTED BALL DISTANCE (MAX)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Distance (max)
1 Matthew Hutchinson TX Lake Highlands 2025 OF 410 ft
2 Axel Chasak TX Plano West 2025 OF 365 ft
3 Dylan Duran TX Aledo 2026 3B 358 ft
4 Nicholas Truong TX PROSPER H S 2025 OF 342 ft
5 Evan Laredo TX Brewer 2024 1B 338 ft

SWEET SPOT%

Rank Name State School Class Pos Sweet Spot %
1 Noah Murphy TX Northwest 2025 3B 88 %
2 Brayden Boyd TX Desoto 2025 OF 87 %
3 Dylan Duran TX Aledo 2026 3B 80 %

Sweet Spot percentage: This metric is determined by how often the player produces a batted ball during the session with a launch angle between 8 to 32 degrees.


BLAST MOTION

HAND SPEED (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (avg)
1 Cannon Webb TX Prosper 2026 SS 24.0 mph
2 Dylon Myrow TX Eaton 2024 SS 23.8 mph
3 Axel Chasak TX Plano West 2025 OF 23.2 mph
4 Gage Belknap TX Hebron 2025 1B 22.4 mph
5 Nicholas Truong TX PROSPER H S 2025 OF 22.4 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 Matthew Hutchinson TX Lake Highlands 2025 OF 86.8 mph
2 Bronco Helmuth TX Fort Worth Christian 2024 C 72.8 mph
3 Axel Chasak TX Plano West 2025 OF 72.6 mph
4 Dylan Duran TX Aledo 2026 3B 72.0 mph
5 Dylon Myrow TX Eaton 2024 SS 71.7 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 Matthew Hutchinson TX Lake Highlands 2025 OF 21.3 g
2 Bronco Helmuth TX Fort Worth Christian 2024 C 20.8 g
3 Axel Chasak TX Plano West 2025 OF 20.2 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.

Pitchers

FASTBALL

MAX VELOCITY (MPH)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Velocity (max)
1 Bryce Mouse OK Elk City 2025 RHP 89.9 mph
2 John Caldwell TX Frisco Centennial 2025 RHP 88.0 mph
3 Cade Moore TX Carthage 2025 C 83.1 mph

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

INDUCED VERTICAL BREAK (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos IVB (avg)
1 Cade Moore TX Carthage 2025 C 15.6 in
2 Bryce Mouse OK Elk City 2025 RHP 14.4 in

Induced Vertical Break: Used in short form as "IVB," this metric is most important on fastballs for creating rise and on curveballs for creating depth – it can also have some use when measuring sliders and cutters as well. Sliders tend to be closer to zero inches while cutters are generally between 5 and 15 inches. Usually fastballs and curveballs with large IVB have higher spin efficiencies as well. Sliders generally have very little (closer to zero) IVB and very low spin efficiency. You could also categorize IVB into spin rate as this is part of the “useful movement” you’re looking for. IVB is also a huge part of the vertical approach angle.

HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (AVG.)

Rank Name State School Class Pos HM (avg)
1 Kamden Campbell TX Gunter 2027 3B 10.7
2 Isaiah Wilson TX Guyer 2026 SS 5.6
3 Bryce Mouse OK Elk City 2025 RHP 4.6

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.”
