Prep Baseball Report

Seattle Preseason ID - Pitching Data Dive


Dan Jurik
Scouting Director - Pacific Northwest

On Saturday, Jan. 27th we were at the Mariners Training Center in Puyallup, WA for our first session of the Seattle Preseason ID events. Featuring prospects in the 2024-2027 classes from across the state. 

Preseason ID events serve as an identifier heading into the spring high school season, giving our scouts as well as college recruiters, a list of prospects to follow as they plan their spring coverage. We also tend to see prospects’ best performances in the preseason, as most athletes are fresh and coming off of strict and targeted off-season training programs that have resulted in big gains, primed for updating their Prep Baseball profile. All of which lends the perfect opportunity to secure invitations to some of the summer's biggest invite-only events such as the Top Prospect Games, Prep Baseball Future Games, and more.

Below is pitching data collected via Trackman. All stats are recorded and made available on the individual player profile.

EFFECTIVE FB VELOCITY AVG

Effective velocity is taking into account the velocity of each pitch, its release distance, the pitches time to the plate / hitting area, and the pitches movement.  With all of this information, Effective Velocity is allowing coaches and scouts to more accurately compare how a pitch is affecting a hitter
