In 2008, Fred Hafer Jr, wanted to buy a recreational football throwing machine for his son. After months of searching sporting-goods stores and the internet, he came to the conclusion that what he wanted didn’t exist.
Leveraging the resources Mr. Hafer had available to him at the small automation company he owned in Pennsylvania, he started developing what would become the Ball Cannon™. The seven-year journey was filled with lots of ups and downs, excitement and disappointment. However, he eventually succeeded in developing the product he envisioned buying for his son.
On May 5, 2015, the company was awarded U.S. patent #9,022,016. Mr. Hafer also trademarked the brand name Ball Cannon™, established a new company, FreVon, Inc., and secured a license with Hasbro to purchase NERF footballs to include with the Ball Cannon™.
The Ball Cannon is a lightweight, portable, battery-operated, recreational football throwing machine that launches NERF Pro Grip footballs from 10 to 100 with a professional-quality spiral. Perfect for kids, teenagers and adults the Ball Cannon can be used in a backyard, park, field or tailgate.
