Vector® Vision Training Ball
The Vector® ball is athletic vision training. This one-of-a-kind training ball allows players to literally See the Impact® when they hit the ball. The Vector® ball is like a regular baseball with one key difference. On contact, the Vector® ball emits a short burst of light, randomly changing the color of the ball (red, green, blue), to create a distinctly visible impact. The visible impact gives ballplayers a tangible focal point that trains the eyes to follow the ball and See The Impact®. The ball changes color for a split second upon impact and then locks-out for 3 seconds to provide one unique visual for each impact. The Vector® vision training ball is the best way to teach ballplayers to keep their eye on the ball and is ideal for improving visual concentration in practically any drill. It can be incorporated into batting practice, pitching/throwing drills, blocking drills for catchers, hand-eye coordination drills, etc.

Vector® Ball Reviews

This is a great training tool! For my 7 year old who just started "Coach pitch" baseball, it has been invaluable to boost his confidence. A hour or so a week, we hit the park. First, I pitch the Vector to him and his mission is to yell out the color he sees when he hits the ball. Then we play catch, with the same mission. On grounders, he yells out the colors as they change and also the color he sees when it hits my glove on his throw back. Talk about forcing you to always keep your eye on the ball.

Great product, my kids love practicing with it. The first one I got was defective so I contacted Eye On Ball Inc. and the owner of the company quickly emailed me back. He went above and beyond making sure that I was completely satisfied. The customer service was outstanding.
