The Ball Coach™
The Ball Coach™ provides easy and accurate speed measurement of pitching and hitting skills. Innovative features and small size make it the perfect radar gun.

The Ball Coach™ is specifically designed to measure the fastest speed of a ball in flight. It works great for baseball, softball, tennis, volleyball, lacrosse, hockey, and cricket. Easy trigger capabilities eliminate any timing requirements: Simply hold the button down well before the ball is in flight, and release once the speed is displayed. Enter Constant-On Mode to provide automatic triggering without the press of a button. Ball Coach™ measures from 25mph to 130mph and is accurate to within +/- 1mph (+/- 2kph), has 120' of range on a baseball, and has 25 deep memory. Includes soft-shell belt holster case, wrist strap, 2 AAA alkaline batteries, illustrated quick start guide, and 2 year warranty.
Here is what Coach Ron Wolforth has to say about the Ball Coach™ from Pocket Radar:
"Almost every week somebody brings something across my desk in the hopes of getting my endorsement. I rarely if ever give my endorsement. We've got an incredible system here at the Texas Baseball Ranch™ and any product must fit into our processes of player development or I simply don't use it and if we don't use it, I won't endorse it. The 'Ball Coach™' is an incredible tool on so many levels. It's accurate. It's reliable. It's easy to use. And most importantly, it is AMAZINGLY affordable. If you are an academy owner or a coach you can have 4 stations for the old price of one. At the Ranch, we have 6 of them! If you are a parent, you have an invaluable tool that is affordable to almost any budget and is incredibly accurate, functional, and easy to use, and you can take it anywhere with you. In my opinion, the 'Ball Coach™' is simply a must-have for training, both personal and/or institutional. It is in constant use at the Ranch. Furthermore, my wife Jill and I use it every single day with our 16-year-old son, who is a switch-hitting catcher, in measuring and tracking his ball exit speeds in hitting and his throws to the three bases as a catcher."
