Pocket Radar along with Display showing 83mph and an iPhone displaying Pocket Radar Plus appFor the third year in a row, the American Baseball Coaches Association and Pocket Radar have collaborated to grant five ABCA member coaches complimentary access to Pocket Radar's Smart Coach Radar and Smart Display technology! In addition to the Smart Coach Radar and Display Accessory, the winners will also receive a complimentary 1-year subscription to Pocket Radar PLUS!

By providing unparalleled integration capabilities with leading scoring, streaming and player development apps (including GameChanger, SidelineHD, AthletesGoLive, SkillShark and more), connecting in-game and practice data for recruiting and development has never been more seamless. With additional new features like slo-mo video capture, pitch charting/tagging and more to come in the future, PLUS will provide a more comprehensive and complete software platform experience for Pocket Radar users.

This opportunity is available to all ABCA Members. ABCA Members can submit their applications for the scholarship from Tuesday, January 30, to Tuesday, March 5, using the provided form below. A recipient will be randomly chosen from the applicants every Wednesday, starting from February 7 and continuing until March 6. Coaches are required to fill out the form only once to be included in all the weekly drawings. The names of the recipients will be announced weekly through the ABCA Press Box e-newsletter.

Each of the five recipients will receive a bundle package of the Smart Coach Radar and Smart Display Accessory, with 1-year free access to the new Pocket Radar PLUS subscription feature.  The training bundle can be paired via USB for a full three-digit display visible up to 100 feet in bright sunlight with a wide-viewing angle. The Smart Coach Radar allows coaches to accurately measure both exit velocities and pitch speeds with the option to pair with the Pocket Radar app to have the speeds announced via speaker. The bundle is lightweight and ultra-portable for indoor or on-the-field use.

Pocket Radar's technology is currently being utilized for player development and scouting at the highest levels of the game. Their Smart Coach Radar provides free access to their ever-evolving software companion app and when paired with the Smart Display provides immediate feedback to players while training in bullpens or inside the cages.  Because of its accuracy and potability, this package is a game-changer when working on developing players in practice and its portability allows you to move around from station to station with ease.
