Episode 1: "Tools to Measure the Speed of the Game"

Host Jeff Forney speaks with Pocket Radar CEO, Steve Goody, about the importance of measuring Ball Exit Speed off the bat during practice and training. Ball Exit Speed off the bat directly relates to the power behind a hit. Every 1 MPH added to exit speed / hit speed results in an extra 5 feet of travel distance on the ball.

 

Episode 8: "Hitting: Measuring the Speed of the Game"

Host Jeff Forney shows us the Pocket Radar Pitch Speed / Reaction Time Conversion Chart, which helps hitters and coaches identify speeds from certain distances and what they correlate to in real time situations. 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.
