Pitch Speed

Pitch Speed


An app for coaches and all baseball fans.
Pitch Speed calculates speed of a baseball based on a very simple formula. A button is pressed once when pitcher releases the ball. The button is pressed again when the ball hits the catcher's mitt. The program measures the time between the two events. Speed is calculated as distance divided by time, and displayed in miles per Hour. It takes a little practice, but after a few minutes fairly good results are obtained.

Great Does exactly what I need it to. Some of the reasons ppl are giving for the bad reviews makes me wonder how they're able to operate their phone. It has a setting menu where you can change the distance from major league distance and little league distance. You can also specify the distance. It's NOT an actual radar people. It calculates how fast you tap the screen with the distance you've entered and shows you the mph. Takes a few pitches to get used to but it's great and exactly what I was looking for.

"Might" be great..... ....if you can access the menu. All I can see is stop/start button, so there is no way to change settings. This makes this app all but useless. (unless you happen to know what the default distance is set to) LG-G3
