All-American TrackMan data

Patrick Ebert        

A special thanks to our partners at TrackMan Baseball for providing the information listed below. TrackMan uses a series of revolutionary technologies to accurately track and record a variety of measurables in an effort to determine if those measurables, or a collection of them, can help discern a higher probability for future success.


The categories as listed below list the top 5 performers from this year's Perfect Game All-American Classic in four separate categories: Peak fastball velocity, velocity spin rate, breaking ball spin rate, top exit speed (velocity of the ball off of the bat), which includes the longest hit tracked.
