Youth Baseball Coach, Rogerick Thompson, Reviews the Ball Coach Radar

by Tyler Scaturro June 27, 2016

Rogerick Thompson 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 Rogerick 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 Rogerick, and his use of the Ball Coach radar at practice with his players:

“This product is one of my of the best investments made. As a 13U travel ball coach this product has been beneficial in developing confidence, by setting pitching machines at 10-15% higher than normal game speed. Cannot be done without this affordable device.”

“In addition, we use it for determining ball exit speed (also referred to as ball exit velocity) with normal movements. After adjustments we measure speed increase, which encourages the player to accept something that uncomfortable at first but more productive.”

We look forward to hearing more upcoming results from Coach Rogerick 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
