Coach Dave’s Pitch Count® Model 300 is a handheld battery operated electronic device, similar in size to a stopwatch.
It has been awarded a U.S. Patent and is an
approved product of Little League Baseball.

Pitch Count can be used by a baseball manager, coach, player, scout, parent or fan to keep track of the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher during a game or practice session. It can track the performance of two pitchers at a time

The Model 300 has a safety alert. It automatically sounds an audible alarm (the “Charge” tune plays twice) at the Little League specified 75, 85, 95 and 105-pitch marks to remind a coach the pitcher has thrown that number of pitches.

Pitch Count is easy to use and allows the user’s eyes to remain on the pitcher’s mechanics and/or the game.

TESTIMONIALS

“For years, coaches and parents have strived to keep track of pitch counts and percentage of strikes on pitchers. The problem is that there is no easy mechanism or device to do that. It is simply too hard in a game situation. The Pitch Count allows you to not only track the number of pitches thrown, it also gives you the ability to get a concrete number on percentage of strikes thrown at any time. The Pitch Count is a must for any coach or parent!!!”

“All programs and coaches need to count pitches. The advantage of Pitch Count is that in addition to displaying the total number of pitches thrown, it also displays the percentage of strikes thrown at any given time. It is multi-functional and economical. Can’t miss.”

“Pitch Count solves some fundamental needs that coaches have been trying to solve for a long time. Pitch Count will enable coaches not only to count pitches but also keep track of other critical statistics all at once without relying on multiple charts and players. I think two of the most practical needs it meets are:
1) being able to keep track of key pitching components/statistics during practice sessions and games without relying on players or managers; and
2) the ability to use this simple technology at all levels (Little League, Babe Ruth, High School, college and professional).”

“Pitch Count is a great tool for any baseball coach at any level. It is an unbelievable device for practice as well as games. Any coach that uses a pitch counter must have one of these.”

Ken Munoz
Head Baseball Coach

“I firmly believe that Pitch Count will significantly improve the capability of a manager or pitching coach to accurately track the performance of a pitcher and make more informed decisions. The real-time calculation and presentation of “% of strikes thrown” relative to the total number of pitches thrown provides immediate trend information that previously had to be manually recorded and assessed.

As a manager or coach, I would actually use two Pitch Count devices during a game. I would use one for game totals and have an assistant use one for “inning totals” and clear the device following each inning. By comparing “% of strikes thrown” for the game with the percent thrown in the last inning, the user will have an immediate indication of a pitcher’s improvement or degradation in performance.

While Pitch Count provides real-time value-added information to the manager or coach, it is easy to operate without diverting attention from the game. Pressing the “balls” and “strikes” buttons can be accomplished as easily as rolling the numbers on an umpire’s ball-strike counter. Palm recorders have the disadvantage of requiring direct visual contact and often both hands in order to operate the electronic device. Pitch Count can be operated with the user’s eyes “still on the game!”

“Based on my 20 years of experience as a Little League and High School coach, I really think leagues across the country will become saturated with a tool like Pitch Count.”
