October is Breast Cancer awareness month which means the timehas come for pink games and pink gear! Better Baseball and Better Softball have teamed up with the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund (GBCCF) with intention of doing our part in impacting the cause surrounding the month of October. The GBCCF, founded in 1994 by survivors of the disease, is a non-profit education and advocacy organization with a focus specifically on Georgians effected.  

The Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund is proud to work with Better Baseball this October. It is wonderful to know that these young athletes and their families find it so important to support the many women (and men) living with breast cancer in Georgia,” said Amy Upchurch, executive director of the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.  “The funds raised support our hard-hitting education and advocacy work to increase access to medical treatment for those diagnosed with breast cancer and funding research.”

Come into our Marietta location during October and find the Breast Cancer Awareness section in the front of the store. In this section we are selling pink inspired accessories and apparel from partnered brands like Under Armour, Mizuno, Lizard Skins, and more.  A large portion of proceeds from items sold in this section will be donated to the GBCCF at the end of the month. Be sure to stop by and #shoptosupport!

Blog Post-Chest Protectors

Did you know hundreds of kids have been seriously injured by being struck in the chest with a baseball? Think about it. One fluke line drive to the heart and your world is turned upside down in an instant. Now, this does not mean you need to prohibit your child from playing the game that we all love. However, it does stress the importance of properly equipping our children every time they step on the diamond.

Chest protectors have become a common trend in recent years, but the goal is not accomplished until every player wears one. For those who are unfamiliar with these devices, they are not as visually apparent as they may seem. In fact, you cannot tell if a player is wearing one. They are built into undershirts which most players are accustomed to wearing anyway. There are different styles of protectors with different levels of padding.

The McDavid HexPad (Picture below) is an 80% nylon and 20% spandex and polyethylene combination. It contains mesh fabric on the back, shoulders and sides to provide ventilation and a light weight feel for players. It has moisture management technology to keep players cool and dry. Most importantly, the shirt has a 9 mm Hex Technology padding to protect players from sudden impact if struck with a ball. It also reduces the chances of minor injuries to the chest and sternum area.

Overall, this is a fantastic product with great reviews. We sell this product at Better Baseball for $29.95 online and at both of our locations. This is a bargain considering most undershirts of this material will cost at least $20 without the padding. Most importantly, with this product you get peace of mind which is priceless. This product is very comfortable and does not hinder mobility when on the field. It does not weigh you down, or even feel excessively hot to wear. Many players say they cannot even tell they are wearing the product. I give this product a 10/10. It is a fantastic safety precaution, and it does not hinder an athlete’s level of play by any means.

Another style of chest protector, the Easton Youth Torso-Tech Shirt” offers more padding than the basic compression undershirt. This one is 100% polyester, and has much more padding. The padding covers the chest, stomach, and sides. This shirt would be recommended for beginner players who are not as skilled fielding balls. This would also benefit players who lack confidence fielding the ball, because this eliminates the fear of getting injured by the ball. However, this excessive padding does affect the athlete’s game. Players become less mobile, and smaller kids have trouble with their throwing mechanics while wearing the shirt. For these reasons, I would give the product a 9/10 rating. It is still a great product, it just meant for a different kind of player. Even though it slightly affects the players on the field, it serves its objective of keeping players safe on the field. This product is sold at Better Baseball for $35.95.

A product similar to the two featured in this blog are a must for parents to get their kids. Customers should not be too sensitive to the price, because the alternative could be an injured child and a hospital visit. No matter what All-Star team your child plays for, or how good they are; it only takes one ball to cause serious injury. Don’t take the risk.

Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System

May 29, 2015 11:25:54 AM


The Better Baseball Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System


The bat has come a long way since the early days of baseball.  What was once an object sloppily cut out of a tree trunk by hand is now a fine-tuned hitting device produced by dozens of manufacturers in various lengths, weights, and materials.  Over the years, the baseball bat has evolved under the notion that the newer, better model will bring hitters more success.  And it just so happens to be that the first step to successful hitting is making sure that you have the right bat.  So how do you tell if the bat you’re planning to purchase is the best fit for you?  With such an overwhelming variety of options out there today, it can be quite confusing making this decision.  But don’t you worry!  We’re here to help.

Better Baseball is proud to introduce the Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System – our new and improved bat selection process.  With the use of a Zepp sensor, a Hit Trax Batting Simulator, and the expertise of the Better Baseball staff, we guarantee a fun and interactive experience in choosing the correct bat, while also offering valuable feedback on swing speed and mechanics.  By implementing this system, we at Better Baseball truly believe that our customers will greatly benefit by being able to make the most informed purchase decision.  It’s our way of taking pride in outfitting players with the right gear and a means for us to stay on the cutting edge of the latest and greatest baseball technology.  Let’s take a deeper dive into this new system.

The first component of the Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System is the Zepp Sensor.  This device consists of a motion sensor placed on the knob of the bat that transmits swing data straight to your smart phone.  The Zepp Sensor provides instant feedback on bat speed, hand speed, swing plane, time to impact, bat angles, and more.  It displays a 3D model on your smart phone that allows you to replay and analyze your swing.  It also provides personalized coaching tips and drills that you can work on to fix those imperfections.  You can say that this part of the Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System is all about the pre-contact mechanics of your swing.  By using the Zepp Sensor, we are able to determine which bat size you are swinging fastest and most consistently.  So what about post-contact ball trajectory?  That’s where the Hit Trax Batting Simulator comes in.


The second part of the Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System is the Hit Trax Batting Simulator.  This revolutionary technology, composed of multiple high-speed, motion-sensing cameras and a display screen, is the first and only batting simulator of its kind.  The Hit Trax Batting Simulator offers instant feedback on exit ball velocity, hit distance, launch angle, and much more.  View spray charts, batting averages, and line drive percentages with the simulator that allows you to train as you play.  By using the Hit Trax Batting Simulator, we are able to determine which bat size is best suited for you based on the hitting display you simulate for us.

The third part of the Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System is the knowledgeable Better Baseball staff.  We’re here to help you understand that everyone’s swing is different and not everyone should be using the same model bat even if it’s the “hottest one out.”  We’re here to teach you the difference between a “balanced” and an “end-loaded” bat and what type of swing best matches each.  We’re here to give you the pros and cons of 1-piece alloy bats, three-piece composite bats, and everything in between.  We’re here to show you all the unique features of different bats, such as composite end caps, rotating handles, and rubber vibration dampeners.  We’re here to tell you what the heck a “drop number” is.  For years, we have outfitted players of all ages with bats of different sizes and makes.   Our expertise and experience in this field is something we take pride in and always try to improve on.  The Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System is the next big step.

Softball Blurb:

“Each softball hitter is unique with their own technique, hitting style, and power.  Each player needs a bat designed with their exact preferences in mind. Power hitters need a bat that packs a big punch while slappers need a bat weighted closer to the hands for maximum barrel control. Not all bat sizes are created equal. Each model bat swings differently even when advertised to be the same size.  If you’re still using a sizing chart to find the perfect bat for you then you’re doing it wrong. Thanks to the innovation of Zepp and HitTrax, there are tools to help make a more thorough decision when choosing a bat.  Not only can you measure you bat speed alone, but with these tools you can measure swing trajectory, distance, time to contact, and much more. We have both sensors here at Better Softball and are prepared to help you find the perfect bat for you!”


The Sweet Spot Bat Sizing System is now open to the public, no appointment needed.  The Hit Trax Batting Simulator is located only at our Marietta location.  Don’t forget about the Swing Speed Challenge in both Marietta and Chamblee over the weekend of May 22 – May 24!

Power Of the Plus

May 29, 2015 10:45:39 AM


Power of the Plus:


Louisville Slugger has been grinding the past few years working to become the most dominant fastpitch bat on the market. Whether it is a Xeno or LXT, you can rest assured that you are stepping up to the plate with a top quality weapon.


After much anticipation, Louisville Slugger has introduced the 2016 beautifully powerful models- the Xeno Plus and LXT Plus!


This year’s line stayed the course with similar graphics from 2015, but, in true Louisville Slugger fashion, they have stepped it up a notch for 2016. Along with adding the “Plus” to the names, the new line has infused an eye-catching splash of optic yellow into both the Xeno Plus and LXT Plus. Louisville Slugger has struck a perfect balance between classic and flash with their aesthetics and I could not be more pleased with how they turned out.


Moving on to what really matters- ultimate performance. Let’s break it down by model.


Xeno Plus: The old faithful. This bat has one of the largest sweet spots in the game with a trademark sound that gets results. Louisville Slugger Performance Plus Composite allows for zero wall friction and maximum pop. The two piece barrel to handle iST technology provides max flex and limits bad vibrations. With sizes ranging from -11 to -8, this is a bat that can be swung throughout an entire career.


LXT Plus: This model has been slowly catching up to its LS counterpart over time and we think this year might be the year that LXT breaks out ahead of the almighty Xeno! This is one sharp looking bat with some of the best graphics and color schemes that we have seen yet. Made with the same Performance Plus Composite Technology as the Xeno, this model is no longer end-loaded like it was in 2013. You will get an evenly balanced bat engineered for maximum performance! The LXT TRU 3 Technology doesn’t allow the handle and barrel to touch allowing for optimum pop and eliminating all vibrations. Another great surprise is the addition of a -11 option! Now the younger, smaller athletes training for big-time performance can join the LXT crowd. Seriously, this bat is legit and that blue will definitely make a statement at the plate!



We are counting down the days until June 1 when these beauties arrive in the store. As always, be sure to stop by Better Softball in Better Baseball and demo one to see the results for yourself!

The Pitcher’s Pocket – No catcher?  No Problem!

You’ve seen them in back yards and driveways across America… the pitching target that looks like you’re throwing to a cartoon character.  Most of them are equipped with a thin vinyl tarp hanging off a pole with a cut out strike zone and a right-handed batter painted on.  A pitching target is a great idea if you want to work on pitching accuracy, consistency, and overall skill, but there’s something else out there that is nine times as durable, nine times as effective, and nine times the fun.  It’s called the 9 Hole Pitcher’s Pocket.  


Designed and manufactured at Better Baseball in Marietta, GA is what some will say is the greatest pitching training aid ever made.  The 9 Hole Pitcher’s Pocket was first created in 2000.  Over the last 15 years, 6 prototypes have gotten this product to where it needs to be: a useful, durable, exciting pitching aid that’s fun and effective for both little leaguers and major leaguers.  Ever since the Pitcher’s Pocket caught the attention of players, parents, and coaches, it’s proven to be an extremely popular training aid for baseball and softball players worldwide.  

So why get a Pitcher’s Pocket when there are cheaper alternatives?  A big chunk of that answer is durability.  Any time you’re putting a vinyl tarp under the constant stress of baseballs hitting it, it’s going to split at the seams and tear into pieces sooner than you may think.  The same goes for mass-produced pitching targets with an aluminum frame and a cheaper quality (polypropylene) netting.  The Better Baseball 9 Hole Pitcher’s Pocket comes fully equipped with nine separate #60 grade nylon-netted holes, or pockets, divided by bungee cords that attach to a UV coated vinyl padding-incased galvanized steel frame.  The detachable/height-adjustable legs, also made of galvanized steel with rubber end caps, guarantees a sturdy base and easy storage.  These pitching targets are built to last a long time.  Period.


Another reason to consider the Pitcher’s Pocket over a different training aid is its versatility.  The 9 Hole Pitcher’s Pocket is an ideal backstop for live batting practice, a good stand-in first baseman for infield ground ball practice. Catchers can use it too, as a target for their throw-downs at second and third base. The Pitcher's Pocket is a  perfectly sized strike zone for wiffle ball, and a means to play competitive games between players of all ages.  A fan favorite, “Tic-Tac-Throw,” is a game using the Pitcher’s Pocket as a tic-tac-toe board.  Be the first to get three of your pitches in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line to win.  You can also play a full game in "9 Innings”.  Each inning, you get four chances to hit a designated hole.  For each hole hit, you earn one run.  Start the first inning in the top left hole and work your way down and over to the bottom right hole for the ninth inning.  Whoever has the most runs at the end is more accurate and has earned bragging rights… until next time. These are some great games to keep practice fun and engaging. 

Want a Pitcher’s Pocket that’s a different size than the 9 Hole?  No problem.  They also come in a Quad Pocket, 12 hole and 16 hole.  Want to attach a larger back-stop behind it to catch the missed pitches?  No problem there either.  Better Baseball is flexible with the dimensions, number of holes, and any extra attachments you might want added.  The Pitcher’s Pocket is available in a wide array of colors including black, red, navy, royal, green, purple, orange, yellow, and many more.

The Better Baseball Pitcher’s Pocket is the best tool possible for assessing and increasing pitchers’ accuracy.  It is highly recommended for baseball and softball players (especially pitchers) of all ages who are serious about improving their game.

“Accuracy from the palm of your hand” – The Pocket Radar

In the beginning, radar guns had their place… hidden behind a bush off the side of the highway trying to catch the red Mustang doing 95.  It wasn’t until the mid-1970’s that radar guns made their way into the ball parks.  Ever since, they’ve proven to be popular tools for baseball players, coaches, and scouts.  And there’s good reason for it.  Radar guns provide the most accurate, unbiased performance feedback for throwing, hitting, and pitching velocities.

Over the years, many radar guns from various manufacturers have strived for one thing:  accuracy.  A radar gun that doesn’t read the correct speed is like a glove with a hole in it.  It’s safe to say that after 40 years of product testing and advanced engineering that the top companies have a firm grip on the accuracy issues.  However, from a design standpoint, there is only one radar gun that leaves the others in the dust, and it’s called the Pocket Radar.

Unlike all big and bulky radar guns, the award-winning Pocket Radar is the first radar gun you can actually fit in your pocket.  Instead of resembling the shape and grip of a gun, the Pocket Radar is more like a cell phone.  It’s very discreet, at a great price, and it’s just as accurate as some of the most expensive radar guns on the market (+/- 1 mph).  From a scouting standpoint, it can be problematic to have a standard radar gun pointed at a kid on the mound.  If a younger player sees that he’s being clocked, he’s much more likely to try to throw harder than he actually can, which can result in a poor performance or an arm injury.  The discretion of the Pocket Radar is a unique and invaluable feature for scouts to stay off the players’ radar… pun intended.

The Pocket Radar comes in two different models: the Classic and the Ball Coach.  The Classic model was designed as an all-purpose radar gun for clocking anything in motion.  Though it wasn’t designed for reading pitch and swing speeds, this model still does the trick.  The Ball Coach is a more improved model designed specifically for clocking speeds in sports.  It has a Constant-On mode that allows for hands-free use and a recall memory of 25 speed readings.  If you’re looking for a radar gun for the purpose of clocking baseball and softball speeds, the Pocket Radar Ball Coach is the way to go.


Here are the specs on the Pocket Radar Ball Coach, the official radar gun for Triple Crown Sports:

Range: Ball Speed from 120 feet Away

25 to 130 MPH (Accuracy +/- 1 MPH)

Recall Memory: 25 speed readings

Size: 4.7 x 2.3 x 0.8 inches

Weight: 4.5 ounces with batteries

Battery Life (Typical Use):  

  • Manual Trigger Mode > 2,000 Readings;  

  • Constant-On Mode > 1 Hour with 2 new alkaline AAA batteries (included)

Includes:  Belt Holster Case, Wrist Strap, Quick Start Guide

Warranty:  Two years

Pros:  Reduced price and size but same accuracy as Jugs and Stalker radar guns, Scouting discretion, No need for a bulky case, just your pocket

Cons:  Beyond 120 feet, it won’t read speeds accurately, Must be just behind the backstop for best results
