This site (PitchCom.com) is dedicated to colleges, high schools, travel ball and adult amateur teams, for both baseball and softball. PitchCom Futures, LLC is making the same PitchCom System relied on by Major League Baseball available to players at all levels.
The PitchCom™ communication system uses a proprietary push-button transmitter that allows coaches to communicate plays to every player on the field without using physical signs or verbal communication. Every player wearing a receiver actually hears the same instructions.
