Diamond Kinetics PitchTracker
The Diamond Kinetics PitchTracker was developed to give coaches and players an affordable tool (that is not a big, bulky, and expensive hardware system) they can take with them to the field or use in a facility setting. The leather smart ball has the feel of a leather baseball and is designed for bullpens, training, and showcases but not for game use. A practical tool to help assess pitches, the data available from the PitchTracker provides athletes instant feedback on their pitches.
- The PitchTracker 'Smart' ball captures motion data in real-time and sends it to the free PitchTracker iOS app via Bluetooth
- 'Smart' ball memory holds up to 64 pitches when mobile device not nearby
- Purchase of a PitchTracker 'Smart' ball includes a free 14-day premium PitchTracker subscription
- Charger and charging ring are included
- iOS devices only (If you don't have access to iOS, the software will not be accessible)
- FREE STANDARD SHIPPING
Radar guns provide velocity readings, but that is it. Complicated hardware systems are expensive and not mobile. PitchTracker and the Diamond Kinetics 'Smart' ball solve that and more!
A small sensor is embedded into the core of each smart ball that generates 6 metrics on every throw: velocity, spin rate, extension, and three timing data points, including time-to-the-plate, delivery, and reach back until release point. The velocity and spin rate measurements are consistent with Rapsodo but it is the other metrics with the portability and affordability of the smart baseball that make the PitchTracker invaluable and a great complement to your pitcher's development
The PitchTracker comes with a ball and free iOS app to access the PitchTracker Dashboard and information about velocity and spin rate. Accessing measurements for time to plate, extension, delivery time, reach back to delivery, manual pitch charting for up to 5 types of pitches and the ability to record video to sync with the data requires a subscription from Diamond Kinetics. Subscription services ($9.99 per month or $89.99 a year) allow access to trend charts, groups & leaderboards, full pitch history and profile to profile connection (coach to multiple players for example).
Diamond Kinetics conducted thorough testing to ensure PitchTracker reliability and durability. The smart ball is best used when thrown to a catcher or into a net; repeated contact with hard surfaces are likely to damage the inductive charging coil or the interior sensor. The smart ball cover is leather and wear from use should be expected in the like manner expected of any high quality game baseball.
