Digital Speed Sensing Baseball

Here's a luxury stocking stuffer for your Little Leaguer if he dreams of becoming the next great pitcher: a digital speed-sensing baseball. (And don't count out your tomboy daughters either -- have you seen the newspaper stories about Eri Yoshida, the 16-year-old girl drafted to a men's professional baseball team in Japan?)

I think any baseball-playing kid would love to find this in their stocking on Christmas morning! It clocks up to 100 mph, and registers the speed immediately upon impact. My only concern is that according to the Discovery Channel website product page, there's only a two-month manufacturer's warranty, but maybe that's the best that can be expected from something you know is going to take a beating.

What: Digital Speed Sensing Baseball
Where: Discovery Channel Store, sporting goods stores, etc.
How much (as of today's post): $24.95 (plus shipping)
