Caleb Balbuena

Co-Founder/Co-Owner

As a pitcher who topped out at 98+mph, I was originally selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the sixth round of the 1997 amateur draft. I chose not to sign and instead took a scholarship opportunity to play at Long Beach State. My success at Long Beach State included a trip to the finals of the College World Series. I went on to pitch for the Seattle Mariners, as well as the Colorado Rockies in MiLB and have over 13 years of professional baseball experience.. After retiring from professional pitching, I began my professional coaching career. I served as a coach in professional ball for several years, including a year as interim manager. In 2020 I was offered a college coaching job that I accepted and still enjoy today. The PopTimer PRO100™ by Caught Stealing LLC offers a solution to an unmet need in the world of baseball, and more specifically in the world of catchers. The PopTimer PRO100™ is “the radar gun for catchers” and we are excited to see catchers help launch this technology that will transfer to other platforms in the future as well. PopTimer PRO100™, where accuracy meets performance.
