Jeff Scholzen
Utah Scouting Director

We take a deep dive into our Trackman Leaderboards, as we held the Top Prospect Games at beautiful Pleasant Grove HS at the foothills of one of the most scenic backdrops in the country. This exclusive event, is the most prestigious summer invite only showcase in the PBR Utah ecosystem. With 82 players in attendance with 74 hitters seen and data collected, these top 10 leaderboard list are a tribute to each players ability and hard work to get here.

A significant amount of data on each player was collected including:

Laser graded 60 Times / Swift Technologies - Synchro 10/30/60 yard splits and EZ Jump Pad)

Batting Practice measured by Trackman

Catcher Pop Times and Velocity

 Outfield Evaluation and Velocity

Infield Evaluation and Velocity

Vizual Edge Eye Trainer (Used by 15 MLB Clubs)

Live game action, where pitchers were analyzed and assessed by Trackman. We pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology in the game to provide the most accurate data for both the player and those recruiting/evaluating the player, as every college and university was in attendance from the state. The following schools were in ATTENDANCE:

U of the Pacific (WCC)

MAX EXIT VELOCITY

Attaining a high Exit Velocity is one of a hitter's primary goals. A hard-hit ball won't always have a positive result, but the defense has less time to react, so the batter's chances of reaching base are higher. The Average MLB exit velocity is 89 MPH, 91 MPH is top 40, anything above 92 is top 15.

HARD HIT % of over 90 MPH

Hard hit % defines a 'hard-hit ball' as one hit with an exit velocity of 90 mph or higher, and a player's "hard-hit rate" is simply showing the percentage of batted balls that were hit at 90 mph or more. ... For true production, you need to get to 95 mph.

SWEET SPOT %

The only statistic of those that needs some explanation is Sweet Spot %. Sweet Spot % is the percentage of batted balls between 8 and 32 degrees. As well, while we all know what LA is, it is important to know what each LA is classified as:

  • Less than 10 degrees – Ground ball
  • 10 – 25 degrees – Line drive
  • 25 – 50 degrees – Fly ball
  • Greater than 50 degrees – Pop up
