Pocket Radar sits down with Jason Sekany, Owner of Total Player Center (Livermore, CA), for an in depth interview about his incorporation of the Ball Coach radar in his facility.  Not only is it a valuable tool for providing instant objective feedback for athletes to get better faster, but it is also a helpful tool for him to evaluate staff and training techniques.

In the 7 part video series, Jason discusses a wide variety of topics, ranging from the influx of technology in baseball over recent years (exit velocity), to the new ways that radar is being utilized (an injury prevention tool to monitor fatigue).  Below, are brief descriptions accompanied by each video in the series:

1.  How has adding the Ball Coach radar helped with training sessions?  In this video, Jason discusses how bringing out the Ball Coach radar during training excites the athletes/students and also brings out their competitive nature to improve their numbers.
