Seattle Fall Open: Blast Motion Board


PBR Washington Staff

The Seattle Fall Open was held on September 28th at the Bannerwood Park in Seattle, WA. This event was an open event that consisted of prospects from the 2023-2026 classes. These players went through extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman and Blast Motion, participated in defensive evaluations, ran the 60 yard-dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to throw in simulated bullpens and were able to get numbers and metrics off of our Trackman unit, such as pitch velocity, spin rate, horizontal & vertical movement & much more. 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.

Continuing off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the leaders from Blast Motion recorded from the showcase.

5 Teige Halligan WA O'Dea 2023 OF 21.4 mph

Rank Name State School Class Pos Hand Speed (avg)
1 Caden Webster WA Bishop Blanchet 2023 OF 22.3 mph
2 Rocco Stefonick WA O'Dea 2025 1B 21.9 mph

4 Teige Halligan WA O'Dea 2023 OF 20.4 mph
5 Tyler Knox WA Mount Rainier 2026 2B 19.9 mph

Peak Hand Speed: The observed maximum 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 (AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Bat Speed (avg)
1 Kasen Landry WA Kentwood 2024 RHP 70.4 mph
2 Caden Webster WA Bishop Blanchet 2023 OF 69.8 mph
3 (DJ) Damico Parker Jr. WA Garfield 2024 OF 68.3 mph
4 Cole Miller WA Sumner 2025 3B 67.1 mph
5 Tyler Knox WA Mount Rainier 2026 2B 67.0 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 (PEAK & AVERAGE)

Rank Name State School Class Pos Rot. Acc (max)
1 Caden Webster WA Bishop Blanchet 2023 OF 28.9 g
2 Tyler Knox WA Mount Rainier 2026 2B 19.8 g
3 Tate Gilberts WA Tumwater 2023 C 19.2 g
4 (DJ) Damico Parker Jr. WA Garfield 2024 OF 18.4 g
5 Julian Unay WA Newport 2025 SS 16.9 g

2 Tyler Knox WA Mount Rainier 2026 2B 16.3 g
3 Tate Gilberts WA Tumwater 2023 C 15.1 g
4 (DJ) Damico Parker Jr. WA Garfield 2024 OF 14.0 g
5 Teige Halligan WA O'Dea 2023 OF 13.6 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.
