Check your heater

Wired's gadget blog Gear Factor points us to the potential Father's Day gift of a digital speed-sensing baseball so you can see how fast you're throwing.

I actually remember owning this as a kid, but a more simpler version — you couldn't put in the distance, so it was fairly inaccurate, so the game became more of "how high can you make the numbers on the ball go" and involved very little actual ball throwing. It didn't last very long, because it was either a) a piece of crap, or b) I wore it out from its "unintended usage".
