“Associating our brand and technology with a top rate organization like the American Baseball Coaches Association is a no-brainer,” said Steve Goody, CEO and co-founder of Pocket Radar. “As they are one of the leaders in providing opportunity and top rate education to all levels in the sport of baseball, our company was founded on the idea of providing accessible pro-level technology to everyone. We are excited to continue our relationship as a Double Partner and look forward to kickstarting our new Coach Scholarship, among many other initiatives.”
Pocket Radar, who had sponsored the 2020 #ABCAatHOME Perspectives webinar series
