The new Ball Coach™ from Pocket Radar was again featured in the latest episode of BPUTV (Baseball Player University), that aired on Fox Sports Network Arizona and MASN.
Hosted by former professional and collegiate coach, Jeff Forney, BPUTV features segments focusing on baseball training tips for hitters, pitchers and fielders. It also features segments aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles and practices among youth athletes and ballplayers.
Episode 8 of the 2014 season featured the Ball Coach radar being used by Jeff as a helpful tool to measure the speed of the ball coming out of the pitching machine. He also utilizes a chart we helped design for him describing what the speed of the ball looks like as it is released from the pitching machine. So a ball that is released from the pitching machine at 64 MPH from only 40 feet away, will appear to the hitter as a 90 MPH fastball. This is a great technique to study and see if your hand and eye coordination adjustments to the speed of the ball.
Stay tuned for more episodes to come, featuring the new Ball Coach radar as a hitting, pitching and fielding training tool for ballplayers of all ages.

The ability to evaluate skill level with instant and unbiased feedback requires a top tier performance training tool. That’s why Pocket Radar, Inc. created the pro-level Ball Coach radar. It’s a speed training tool for player development through one-on-one coaching or self-guided drills and hands-free operation keeps it simple. By making crucial results like hitting power, pitching speeds, throwing speeds, serving speeds and shot speeds instantly visible, the Ball Coach is the easy way to get better faster. Powerful features include hands-free Constant-On Mode (put all your focus on coaching and training, not the radar gun), easy automatic triggering (simply hold button down and release when speed appears) and built-in memory with the previous 25 speeds (keep track and review training lessons).
Professionals and amateurs across multiple sports are currently using the Ball Coach radar to improve performance and skill level with instant and accurate feedback. It has become the convenient speed radar and training tool of choice among collegiate coaches, high school coaches, travel ball coaches, club coaches, recruiters, parents and athletes worldwide. Easily measure baseball and softball hitting and pitching speeds, volleyball and tennis serve speeds, hockey and lacrosse shot speeds, and cricket bowler speeds. Built from the same high-impact plastic as hockey helmets, the Ball Coach is rugged enough to perform well in even the most demanding sports environments, with pro-level accuracy. Named Best of Show at the 2014 American Baseball Coaches Association national convention, the Ball Coach is the first pro-level radar gun specifically designed for coaching and training. “If you are looking to elevate player performance, you need to own the Ball Coach.” – Andy Lopez, University of Arizona Baseball (3-Time National Coach of the Year)
