    looking for a circuit that will measure baseball bat speed
    using infrared photo cells as inputs. would like a display
    with time or mph results.

    any suggestions would be welcome

    well, it's quite tricky.
    if u use 2 IR sensors amd u know the distance between them, it could work
    the ideea is to use the seosors, conect them to a stopwatch(a digital one) to the start and stop buttons and have the time.
    u can use the distance batween the sensors so that the watch will show the result in km/h or m/h
    any way,
    good luck
