A RUBBER BAND THAT'S WORTH $1,000
Updated: Jun 9
You've got to love this math: your smartphone + 1 rubber band = $1,045 value
A Jugs radar gun costs $1,050. SmartPitch costs $4.99.
Use a rubber band to set up SmartPitch in the dugout, and that rubber band + the SmartPitch software magic gives you a baseball speed gun as accurate as a Jugs gun, and more versatile. SmartPitch gives you hitting Exit Velocity and Launch Angle and Distance. Jugs cannot do that.
So, all you team managers with little or no budgets: do you want pitch speed and hit Exit Velocity and Launch Angle for all your players?
Get yourself a rubber band and the SmartPitch app in the App Store or Play Store, and start collecting stats similar to the pitch and hit stats from StatCast.
