Yes, the Stalker Sport 2 seems to read about 1.0-1.5 MPH slower at 80+ MPH in our experience compared to a Stalker 2 Pro (the main scout gun these days). I've tested these products in so many different ways anyone else would go insane (various JUGS, Stalkers, Trackmans, Rapsodos, etc). We have industrial fluorescent lighting but I'm not actually sure that's the issue. I think the Stalker 2 Pro is just a better / hotter gun.

That is fantastic to hear! (said the dad whose son's recent readings have all been with a Stalker Sport )

I'd say 1 MPH is a bit high. Sometimes it's dead on. The average overall is probably slightly below 1 MPH. We gunned a pro pitcher with our Stalker Sport 2 and he sat 92-94 but when we had the same gun on him for scouts, he was sitting 93-95 on the Stalker Sport 2 and 94-96 touching 97 on the Stalker Pro 2. So there's a difference, but it MIGHT only be important at 90+ MPH. It may read 70-75 MPH just fine. I am not sure.

David: My 2015 had considered Georgetown met with the coaches on several occasions (events/showcases) and attended the "Junior Day" weekend MLK weekend his junior year. Son knew the quality of the academics at Georgetown and value of Jesuit education. Their is stability at the top (HC Wilk) though all of his assistants are new. RC son had correspondences with had left school son's senior year of HS. If you don't mind the winter, DC is a great place to go to school. As for the school's...

We had mentioned this program with our travel coach. Our coach has been around a long time and is old school. That being said, he hesitated and stated that "the coach has a very strong personality. Some guys do fine with him and others have a hard time with the coach." Take that for what it's worth, but it definitely made us reprioritize programs.

Ripken, that does help. Also, a nice reminder to check out facilities while you're in the "process". I can recall my 2016 being turned off by William & Mary's facilities while we were on a 7 college tour in 5 day. trade-offs with everything. Thank you

William and Mary has pumped millions of dollars into their athletics programs the past several years. It is the only school in the country, outside the Power 5 to have a student-athlete drafted from the basketball, baseball and football teams last year. In my humble opinion it is on the rise and definitely worth taking a look if you are ever in southeastern Virginia.

Good to hear CatsPop. Figured they were due for enhancing the facilities, can't do all of them at once. It's all about timing...

Sun and Ripken have provided some sound insight to the situation. Not everyone's cup of tea. Not for my 2012 that's for sure.

There's a board member with a son who played at Georgetown. He recently graduated. He still pops in once in a while.

My son played for Georgetown University and Coach Wilk. My son had options coming out of high school but he had his priorities when making his decision. He wanted to play D1 (please no comments about why just D1, I agree there are many great D2 programs and D3 programs, but Like I said these were his priorities)…he did consider D2/D3 programs but a priority was D1. Georgetown plays in the Big East and his first few years it was the old Big East so he got the opportunity to play against some...

Really appreciate hearing about your & your sons GTown experience. I'm confident I'll have questions. Hoping to hear about capital improvements to baseball facilities from someone. When did your done graduate, and what career field is he pursuing? Thank you. David

Gov....he graduated this past Spring....double major in Finance and Accounting. He is working on Wall street. I am not sure but I think you can go on line and read about the new athletic building....like I said I think the baseball program will experience some positive aspects due to the overall improvement and additions. I wish they had done this years ago :-) Also I saw you asked about a JV program, there is none.

Son works out indoors at the same baseball facility as the Gtown, and frankly it's a haul from DC to this facility (and then add on DC/VA traffic). That's a negative. Having said that, those boys get at it during practice: no BS, and they compete hard. They don't leave anything on the table. Let's not forget the most important factor: IT'S GEORGETOWN! One of the best universities in the country!!!

2015 RHP considered Georgetown due to family connections - Dad has an MBA from there many moons ago and sister is in the Class of 2016. He's played many times at Povich Field, enjoys the environment, saw many of the team's practices, and still thinks highly of the program. From a parent perspective, the only negative in my mind is the off-site field. Yes, the 15-minute commute to Povich field is possible, but even if that were the case every time, that's 30 minutes a day of likely...

Reviving an older thread that brought into question the status of current facilities. Clueless JR will likely attend January camp, but thought i would share one piece of this mass mailing that updated current facilities discussion. This camp will take place on the Georgetown University Campus in our brand new indoor facility. Within the past year we have added a new locker room as well as we continue to invest in this program. As this is part of our continued effort to heavily invest in our...

That will definitely help. When my 2015 was looking there they would share some of the turf fields with other sports, though they had a batting cage on campus (that the coach said can be used at all hours). Their field would involve bus trips to Maryland everyday with a stadium that was used in a summer league and needed some TLC.

Hello all, Glad this was started as I have a question as far as interest. I got an email from the AC stating "Continue to keep us updated with new video and progress through the fall. Look into one of our winter camps in December and January and see if you can attend. Keep in touch." Would it be a good idea to attend one of the camps or should I just invite them to showcases I will be at? Thank you

Son graduated a few years ago after the new locker room and hitting facility but they can only add to the great experience at Georgetown. He did not attended one of their camps but was seen at showcases and travel team games. I do know many kids do attend their camps and is a good way to get recognized. Be glad to answer any questions that a person a few years removed can answer...just send me a private message

I am not sure how hard if would be to do a pre med tract and play baseball at Georgetown. My son did do a double major which I thought was crazy but he was able to pull it off. I have heard at other D1 schools it is not possible to do a pre med and play baseball but I am not qualified to answer that question. Best thing would be to talk to the coaches at Georgetown and I know they will advise you. Hopefully somebody else can help you with the pre med tract question. Good luck!

Interference with Stalker Sport 2

lionhurler ·
Has anyone had any experience with things interfering with the readings on a Stalker Sport 2? I've been using mine in my basement where I have fluorescent lighting and I'm getting lower readings than I've gotten on my college coaches gun. I know the manual says fluorescent lighting can cause interference but wasn't sure how much it affects it. Thanks
