Baseball is the great American pastime. I spent many days as a kid imagining that I was stepping up to bat, or throwing that game-winning strike-out in the big league. Unfortunately I was actually rather terrible at the sport. Every time my bat would connect, the ball would have an uncanny attraction to someone’s mitt. And as for pitching, well let’s just say that it it did manage to go across the plate, it usually ended up somewhere deep in the outfield. Perhaps if I had one of these Personal Pitching Coaches, I’d have had much better luck.
This device shows you exactly where your pitches should go, and lets you know where they have gone. It also accurately measures the speed of your pitch, and keeps track of how many balls, strike-outs, walks, and total pitches you’ve made for a half-inning. You can set it to track pitches for both Little League and Major League distances, as well as fast-pitch softball. Pitching like a pro isn’t cheap, as this gadget will set you back a whopping $400.
