SmartPitch with "Freedom of Location" lets you measure pitch speed and hitting stats from wherever you watch or manage the game. You aren't forced to use it behind the catcher or pitcher.
Here's action from today's local high school game, with SmartPitch measuring pitches from more than 120 feet away from the pitcher, but from exactly where the parents are sitting in their folding chairs!!
