Well my radar gun game today and I gave it a try…
I was wondering if anyone that was more experienced new of the most effective spot to take readings from.
Also I was somewhat puzzled, here’s my question:
I was coming in at a consistent 62-63, so I know it’s pretty consitent, little brother constant 53-53.
Anyways I’m 15 and have played with and against some very talented kids, however I would definately say I have above average velocity for my age, atleast not below average (as it would suggest). A buddy of mine has a higher end radar gun (haven’t been measured on it) he clocks in at 68, and definately thinks I throw harder??? and my little brother was clocked at some tournament at 56-57, and his arms definately stronger than when he was clocked
This really bugged me, I mean I release going down ball get to home just fine, if I was actually throwing around 60, I thought I would have to release tha ball up to get it there???
Another thing is, I know there’s no way the little leaguers are throwing 15mph harder
Also my throwing distance is easily 240ft+, I thought 60mph maxed out at about 190ft.
Since it is consistent I still like it, cause I feel like I can track progress, however, I just can’t imagine it’s acccurate. I’m not trying to brag or sound egotistical so I just don’t feel like that could be accurate.
