Coach sports radar–is used to train with immediate objective feedback by everyone from MLB coaches to national championship winning programs in baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, lacrosse, and hockey.
One metric that is currently being used at the highest levels of baseball and softball that has trickled down into the high school and youth levels is a hitter’s exit velocity, or the speed of the ball off the bat. Exit veloc- ity is measured using a radar gun and is the only direct measure of the power behind a hit. Studies have shown that for every extra one mile-per-hour added to exit velocity, the ball will travel an estimated four to six feet further, depending on its trajectory and launch angle. That means it has a direct effect on whether a player has warning track power or home run power, if they can drive the ball into the gaps for extra-base hits, and if they can hit the ball hard enough to put more pres- sure on the defense and slow down their reaction time.
In addition to its bestselling Ball Coach radar handheld model, Pocket Radar’s award-winning Pro Radar Sys- tem with Smart Display is an innovative training tool that provides direct real-time feedback to the athlete to help improve performance. Pocket Radar is one of
