The Hack Attack Baseball Pitching Machine features an unique design and style that allows the batter to see the ball naturally all the way through the feeding motion, speed and release, very much like from a live pitcher.
This visible arm action alerts the hitter when to stride as well as the angle of release, giving him a live arm sense of timing and placement.
The Hack Attack will pitch unmatched right- and left-handed major league fastballs and breaking pitches, including curveballs, sliders, sinkers and knuckleballs. Doing this is accomplished by simply varying the speed of the wheels with three knobs, doing away with time-consuming modifications of the throwing head.
It immediately changes to fungo work, pivoting in any direction along with genuine game-like spin, simulates grounders, long fly balls, deep line drives, towering infield flies and pop-ups for your catcher.
The Hack Attack is designed for use with regulation leather baseballs, dimpled practice balls, Wiffle balls and all softer practice balls. No assembly is required.
Optional 15 Ball Autofeeder . All you do is choose it in the "Options" box
This exclusive 3 wheel structure alters the breaking pitch plane by way of modifying wheel speed dials. (All 2 wheel models demand cumbersome throwing head adjustments to vary from fastballs to curveballs or right to left handed breaking pitches.)
The Hack Attack’s height adjustment handle will lower or raise the pitch. With an easy turn, you can also slowly move the pitch up or down inside the strike zone between pitches. (On two-wheel pitching machines it usually is necessary to release a locking mechanism, reposition the entire throwing head by slanting it manually after which re-locking the fastener. These are generally awkward time-consuming adjustments.) NEW for 2015 - Elevation Control Now both the Hack Attack and the Junior Hack Attack includes an inside/outside adjustment that delivers instant location change, giving the machines an exciting new dimension. This feature will:
Center the first pitch without having to shift the entire machine (no more kicking of back leg)
Allow the operator to move the pitch inside or outside with a simple turn of a handle In combination with the elevation control, quickly move a pitch to any area of the strike zone between pitches
The machines still lock to repeat pitches and still release to do all of the fungo work.
