The Ball Coach has everything I need from a radar gun in a wonderfully compact design. I use my Ball Coach for checking pitching speed, catching throwdowns and ball exit speed while training my pitchers and catchers. Aside from training, I love the compact size when using the pocket radar at tournaments and high school games. Many times a pitcher will get a bit nervous if they see me clocking them with a gun, but with the pocket radar they never know. Thanks Pocket Radar!
I had the chance to purchase this back during the summer to use with my son’s travel team for the fall season. We are a new team based out of Central Arkansas and most of our kids are playing travel ball for the first time. I have to say this is absolutely one of the best baseball purchases I have ever made. It has really given us specific coaching points to use with our pitchers and hitters. It has fostered some real competition with some of our pitchers as well to not only throw strikes but to throw them at velocity. It has also allowed us to have measurable data to help us work with our hitters on increasing their ball exit velocity off the bat with work off the tee. I can’t say enough about how easy this product is to use or just how useful it has been. I would totally recommend this product for any team or for that coach/dad who just wants to work with their son in the back yard. I have had multiple coaches from opposing teams ask me to get speeds on a few of their pitches as well so they could use the data. Great product!
The ball coach has been a tremendous aide to our High School baseball program. It allows us to easily track pitcher’s velocity and have actual data when players are tiring. At practice is helps us fix swings by checking exit speeds. I have used the ball coach when scouting. Standing between two pro scouts with much more expensive equipment, my ball coach consistently gave me the same reading as their devices. Customer service was also very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend this product for all baseball programs.
The Ball Coach is a great coaching tool! We use it with our pitchers, our catchers and all of our hitters, as well. It is so accurate and so easy to use that we are able to quickly generate extremely useful data. We have not used radar in the past, but now we can't imagine a practice without it. Our boys lacrosse coach saw how much use we were getting out of it and asked to borrow it for his practice, too!
Very effective tool, accurate as more expensive guns
