This past Friday, at Pocket Radar, they received a call from a parent who, using the company’s Smart Coach App was able to share clips of a prep pitcher and receive interest from colleges. Through that app, Pocket Radar — a handheld, accurate radar gun about the size of a phone — is able to film and clip swings and pitches, complete with the velocity embedded. In November 2018, Cardinals prospect Nolan Gorman used a Pocket Radar and posted a clip of him launching a pitch at 100-mph exit velocity. It only needs a tripod. There’s even a Bluetooth component so that a pitcher or hitter can hear the velocity through earbuds.
