Caught Stealing has created a truly transparent player profile-based platform that records light-speed impact and release readings with distance readings accurate down to fractions of an inch. The most accurate pop times ever collected and “Too Accurate!” according to catching guru and Colorado Rockies Lead Catching Instructor, Jerry Weinstein.
