Showcase : : Story
TrackMan from the PG Jr. National
Patrick Ebert        
Published: Friday, June 20, 2014


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 20 performers from this year's Jr. National Showcase in five separate categories: Peak fastball velocity, velocity spin rate, breaking ball spin rate, top exit speed (velocity of the ball off of the bat) and the longest hits tracked.
