We are officially "Patent Pending" now and able to share more information about this exciting new umpire tool. The images shown are of the Smart-Indicator TM electronics mounted inside of a 3D printed prototype housing. The housings used in the final product will be professionally manufactured using the highest quality materials.
Always Know the Count . . . Without Looking!
When designing the Smart-IndicatorTM, the very first requirement was that it must communicate the count to the umpire without the need to look at the indicator.
At the press of a button, the Smart-IndicatorTM will vibrate the count into your hand much like your cellphone vibrates when you have an incoming call.
Choose from 3 different vibration patterns; slow, medium, or fast to best suit your needs and NEVER look at your indicator to know the count again.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to use the Smart Indicator at the USA Softball of Florida National Qualifier in Ft Myers.
To start, I made sure the device was fully charged so I could test how long the battery would last. Happily, even after over twelve hours of actual game time use, the device never exhibited any signs of a low battery.
The most important feature this device offers is a “no look” count reminder. All too often, inattentive coaches will ask numerous times, “hey blue, what’s the count”. Without ever having to look at the device, I was able to recall the count with a simple push of a button.
After “punching out” a batter-runner on a bang-bang play at first base, I lost my grip on the device which caused it to go flying about twenty feet away. When the first base coach handed the far-flung device back to me, I was almost afraid to look at it for fear that I may have damaged it. Luckily the device suffered no damage on this and two additional “test flights”. In fact, the device also survived being accidentally slammed in my trunk.
Aside from the count-down game timer needing to be re-calibrated, this device proved its worth and really piqued the interest of quite a few of the other umpires. By the end of the weekend several umpires from other facilities stopped by to see first hand what all of the buzz was all about. News traveled far and fast. I even had one umpire from Michigan ask if he could buy a prototype device right now because he was so impressed with all of its advanced features.
Bottom line is this is a game changer! Interest is growing every day and will only continue to grow until every umpire has one of them in his/her hand. Phenomenal!!

Today my prototype was delivered to me in Canada. One problem...I was on a plane to Orlando. Louis Nickerson met me at the airport where we had a great chat. He gave me another sample to play with. I was a huge fan from the first day he contacted me.
Videos and photos were exciting enough until I had the unit in my hand. The Clicker is the real deal and it does what it says on the tin.
I am thrilled to be able to help and be involved with helping Louis Nickerson. I said it before...I will say it again GAME CHANGER.
We are headed to Wendelstedt Saturday to show off the Clicker where we will get it in the hands of MLB umpires and MLB call ups. Exciting Times #TheClicker"

Got a chance to test the indicator out in a College scrimmage game today. Love it!!! Display was fine. It was cloudy with some rain and saw the display great. It did get wet with no issues whatsoever. I absolutely love the between inning timer!! This is a huge plus for college baseball with the time rules. I also got to use the “did he go” feature. I called a ball and recorded it. Went to my partner on the check swing and he called a strike. Held the button down and it automatically corrected the count.
