This will help you LOVE math: your smartphone + 1 rubber band = $1,500 Value.
A Jugs radar gun costs $1,500.
SmartPitch #betterthanradar costs $4.99.
Use a rubber band to set up SmartPitch in the dugout, and that rubber band + the magic SmartPitch software gives you a baseball speed gun as accurate as a Jugs gun, and much more versatile & powerful.
SmartPitch gives you
Hitting Exit Velocity and Launch Angle and Distance, Pitch & Pickoof Speed, and
Keeps all your data, not just the last 5 pitches, in charts and tables, and
Works from the dugout or anywhere you manage or watch the game.
Jugs cannot do any of that. No radar gun does that.
SmartPitch is just #betterthanradar. See it in action in this 15 second video...
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? And Release Speed for your pitchers?
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.
