Capping Off A Noteworthy Trade Show Season, The Palm-Sized Speed Radar Wins Coveted Award And Showcases Its Innovative Technology

SANTA ROSA, CALIF. (February 8, 2011)Pocket RadarTM, the world’s first and only palm-sized personal speed radar gun, captured the attention of baseball coaches, scouts and fans alike, while on display at recent trade and industry shows.  With record-shattering attendance at the ABCA Convention, the pocket-sized radar device was on display for over 4,600 coaches and professionals, and received the 2011 Best of Show Award, citing it as one of the best new products for 2011.

A break-through in speed radar technology, the ultra compact Pocket Radar is incredibly convenient and unobtrusive, can handle up to 10,000 readings on one set of AAA batteries, and is much more affordable than other professional radar guns, making it a stand out product for the sought after Best of Show Award, awarded by Collegiate Baseball for the past 10 years at the ABCA Convention.

“The Pocket Radar is a great new scouting tool. It’s so convenient that I always take it with me. With all the travel I do as a National Crosschecker, having this ultra compact radar gun makes my job easier,” added Jeff Zona, Professional Baseball Scout, Washington Nationals.

In addition to the ABCA Convention, Pocket Radar was showcased at other industry shows such as the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Convention and the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association(THSBCA) Convention. Both baseball and softball coaches have praised the product for its innovative technology and setting a new standard in capturing speed-readings.

“The Pocket Radar is so compact and easy to use; we now use radar on the field every day.  Giving feedback this frequently has enabled us to achieve a level of performance that was not possible before,” commented Tim Walton, Head Softball Coach at the University of Florida.

“Coming off a great trade show season, the positive feedback and tremendous response for our product is extremely encouraging as we head into the spring baseball and softball season,” said Steve Goody, CEO and cofounder of Pocket Radar.  “Winning the Best of Show Award highlights the success of the product among many others featured at the shows.  Pocket Radar is excited to be an emerging industry leader in speed radar technology.”
