Bringing modern, industry-leading technology to a performance metric timed at all levels of baseball and softball.
“Pop Times” measure the time between the moment a catcher (or infielder) receives the ball in glove and when their throw reaches its intended recipient.
While Pop Times are remarkably important in baseball/softball evaluations — particularly for catchers — they are notoriously inaccurate and variable, largely because of issues with stopwatch timing.
With a fully automated timing solution, the Zybek Sports POP Cans make stopwatch timing obsolete (or offer a reliable comparison tool vs. stopwatch times). With audible sensors tied to the sound of a ball hitting a glove, the POP Cans are accurate to 0.001th of a second.
For baseball/softball athletes, Pop Times can also be added to the Zybek Sports Standardized Athlete Test.
