High School Baseball Coach of the Year, Brian Chapman, Reviews the Ball Coach Radar

by Tyler Scaturro July 05, 2016

Millburn High School (N.J) Coach Brian Chapman was named National High School (Div. 2) Coach of the Year by the Amateur Baseball Coaches Association

Brian Chapman is one of many coaches in multiple sports that has found the value of adding speed measurements into practice as a powerful training aid for their players and coaching methods.  Unlike the bulkier and more expensive radar guns of the past, used exclusively by scouts to measure fastball velocity, the Ball Coach radar was designed as a training tool for coaches and athletes.  It is just as accurate within 120 feet of range on a baseball, and its discreet size makes it ideal for measuring youth and professional athletes without affecting behavior.

The Ball Coach radar provides accurate speed measurements that have allowed players to develop a new level of confidence in hopes of improving their skills over time. Confidence is an acquired skill that is developed over time, but is key when training and performing. Coach Chapman believes his team’s overall performance has improved immensely due to the confidence they have gained from training with the Ball Coach radar.

Here is some feedback we received from Coach Chapman, and his use of the Ball Coach radar at practice with his players:

“I have coached baseball for 25 years and had never made use of a radar gun in practice.  I was sold on the benefits of the Ball Coach radar after one practice!”

We’ve been using it with our pitchers but also with our position players to give them an idea of how they compare with other kids at their position.  We recently began using it with our hitters, too.  It is very easy for us to measure the speed of a pitch coming in and then the exit velocity of the ball off the bat with one push of a button.  The Ball Coach radar is so easy to operate and so accurate that we are able to generate a ton of extremely valuable data in a short time!  After using it for just a month, we can’t imagine training our pitchers without it.  Even our lacrosse team has started using it at practice! It’s an amazing product!”

We look forward to hearing more upcoming results from Coach Chapman and the team, and if you have any questions or would like to share your Pocket Radar stories, please give is a call toll-free at 888-381-2672 from 9 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time, or e-mail us at info@PocketRadar.com
