How much zip does your fastball have? Is it anywhere close to the heat that Pedro throws? We've got the lowdown on a ball and a glove that'll tell you exactly how fast you're pitchin'.

Rawlings Radar Baseball
This baseball is as accurate as the radar guns they use in the big leagues. It times exactly how fast you throw the ball from the mound to home plate (a distance of 60 feet/20 meters) and gives you a readout on a small screen. Now you and your friends can find out who really has the the fastest pitch. There's also a version of the Radar Baseball that measures the speed from 46 feet/15 meters for Little League players. The ball is the same size and weight as a regular baseball. But don't try hitting the Radar Ball with a bat or it'll be toast. Just use if for measuring the speed of your pitch. The ball costs about $15 US.

Glove Radar
The Glove Radar attaches to a baseball or softball glove and measures the speed of the ball just before it's caught. All you have to do is clip this gadget on to the outside of your glove. It can measure the speed of the ball when it's thrown from any distance - from the pitcher's mound to home plate or from the outfield to third base. That way you can find out how long it takes to throw someone out at home or how long it takes to catch someone stealing second base.
The Glove Radar costs about $100.
