I believe that, over the course of a career, a player may actually take more soft toss swings than live pitching swings. It is the "next building block" and simply adds ball tracking to your tee work!
Our new Heater Big League Pro, formerly Scorpion, from our friends at Trend Sports is our first entry-level soft toss machine. It does not have some of the features & flexibility of our Best-in-Category Wheeler Dealer Soft Toss Machine, but the price certainly makes it a strong consideration for many of our players.

We offer the Basic Heater Big League Pro as a portable unit that is powered by 4 C size batteries (buy the good Duracells) and as a bonus... we will include the 110v AC Power Adaptor with it. Just plug it in and hit/
However, do consider the Long Life Heater Big League Pro, 8 hour rechargeable version, simply for its flexibility... even good alkaline batteries wear out at the wrong time and you will easily be able to set up anywhere from backyard, basement, garage in colder months and of course, to the ballpark...No power or cord needed!
Soft Toss drills are almost always done as a complete station that includes a net or screen to contain balls so that players can quickly get the amount of quality swings that it takes to actually improve... without the boring shagging of balls in the outfield that reduces the effectiveness of the drills. More time shagging is less time hitting! Have a look at the catch nets on the side of this page for my recommendations. Good stuff that won't break the bank!
