Pitching machines are incredibly variable. They can be stationary or portable, supported by tripod or stand, or loaded onto carts. There are differences in aiming abilities, pitching speed, the number of programmable pitches, and even the number of balls that can be loaded. A young player will not initially need the same features as an adult, but if purchasing a unit, it is wise to allow for at least a few years of growth within the same pitching machine.
The basics of a pitching machine are as follows: two or three wheels counter-rotating at the same speed, a feeder chute, a mechanism to time the ball release, and some sort of power source or motor. In order to produce higher speeds, a more powerful motor is required. To put spin on a ball, forward spin, backspin, or side-spin, one must have the ability to turn one wheel faster than the other. Pitching machines become more complex in order to throw curve balls, drop balls, or rising pitches. The more options that a player has to practice with, the wider the range of skills that are developed. Coaches and parents want athletes to focus on developing skills that are consistent with good game play. Pitching machines can provide players with the opportunity to learn every scenario they might be faced with in a game situation. While it is fun to always hit the straight and fast pitch, it is not one that players will see very often during a game. Pitching machines have a variety of pitch settings to simulate real game scenarios.
Pitching machines are also available for softball. To throw a softball pitch, the machine must be built to release underhanded throws. We provide machines that can accommodate fastpitch and slowpitch play, depending on skill level. Some pitching machines are convertible and use a differently shaped chute for baseball and softball. The Beta 1 Softball & Heater Softball pitching machines are both in this category.
There are many accessories that can be added to your pitching machine to aid players during both the learning and practice process. A remote control is available that allows the batter or coach to decide when the pitch will be thrown. A feeder can be added to some pitching machines that allows more balls to be loaded, and in some cases also allows for a soft-toss option. Also available for purchase are pitching screens that help batters with ball placement, and eliminate the need for a wide-open field or second person to chase the ball. Batting cages for protection, radar guns to measure the speed of the pitch, power sources for your pitching machine and rubber matting to protect your cage or windows are all available for purchase with your pitching machine. We can arrange deals for your college or university team if buying in bulk required.
