DIY Guide to Building a Pitching Pocket 9 Hole

DIY pitching pocket

I'm a fan of pitching and the sport of baseball for most of my life and have been wanting to own one of these pitching pocket 9 hole tools for awhile now.

I am also an OverseasFan, so that makes ordering things online in the USA a bit expensive, especially when they are heavy or large shipments. 

A seconde obstacle is that these things can be found online for between $200-$350, which is not a simple click and buy to help your local pitchers out.

I have been coaching pitching for quite a few years now and you can imagine the difficulties of securing a bullpen catcher for younger pitchers. 

This tool fixes that problem.

I did some research around the sizing, materials I might use here locally, and settled on last weekend to kick off my Do-It-Yourself (DYI) project to build a pitching pocket. I would be remiss if I didn't share this online so that many of you others out there would be able to make your very own pitching pocket too. 

Let's take a look, from start to finish, how you too can build your own pitching pocket with materials found in almost any home improvements store (either in US or in Europe where I built it) in just a day and stay under the 80 euro mark.

DevOpsDays Raleigh 2022 - Talking Architecture and Career

 It's been some years since I've been to this conference, mostly due to the worldly situation and travel restrictions, but thought this year was a great time to jump back in.

The 2022 edition will be held on April 13-14 in Raleigh, NC. You can register for tickets and join the fun for a really interesting array of talks and workshops. 

I'm going to give it a good shot this year and have submitted two sessions and a workshop.

Intelligent data as a service (iDaaS) - Example data insights

intelligent data as a service
Part 4 - Example HL7 & FHIR integration

In our previous article from this series we talked about the example iDaaS data architecture specifically integration for HL7 and FHIR healthcare standards.

The process was laid out how we approached the use case and how portfolio solutions are the base for researching a generic architecture. It continued by laying out the process of how we approached the use case by researching successful customer portfolio solutions as the basis for a generic architecture.

Having completed our exploration of an HL7 and FHIR integration architecture, we'll walk you through a more specific example. This scenario is showing a proven and scalable architecture for integrating data insights into your healthcare solutions.
