Pitching Machine Basics

Any player who has the ability to walk out the back door to hit is at a distinct advantage over his competition...players just do not swing it enough otherwise!

Pitching Machine Categories:

*all throw official game weight & size balls though there are a few built for light balls only

Wheel Style Pitching Machines - 1,2,3 & 4 wheel models & optional auto feeders

The most popular types from backyard baseball to pro baseball. They use a spinning wheel(s) & a motor to propel the wheel(s). Most wheel pitching machines have adjustable speed controls & direction adjustments mounted on a steel frame that's attached to a tripod. All run on 110v current & can handle a generator. Most can be purchased as baseball pitching machines, softball pitching machines & some are in a combo unit for both sports. 1 wheel is entry level, 2 wheel are most popular & now 3 & 4 wheels that throw about anything you could want at Major League speeds.

Arm Style Pitching Machines - 4 rack fed & hopper fed models

These are sometimes known as Iron Mike Pitching Machines. That is the made in USA brand you may have seen & used at a commercial batting cage. They weatherproof & tough enough for years of service without trouble. All have auto ball feeders in a rack or a huge hopper that holds hundreds of balls.

Compressed Air & Non Electric Pitching Machines - No electricity needed

Some very clever engineers have created alternative styles that fill particular needs. The Zooka Pitching Machine uses compressed air & rechargeable internal battery that is an engineering wonder. Our UPM 45 Ultimate Pitching Machine is the official model for Cal Ripken baseball & softball machine pitch leagues. It uses a spring loaded concept so needs no electricity.

What JP Says about the Easy Soft Toss Softball & Baseball Pitching Machine

Soft Toss Drills Are Extremely Important  In Player Development!

Players will swing as many times in soft toss stations as they will hit live pitching over a long career!

It is the one fun drill station that is affordable and can be used in the backyard, especially with  solo players. All you need is a good automatic soft toss machine like our EZ Toss and a catch net. Load it with balls, flip the on switch and hit a tossed ball that is variable up to an 8 ft arc every 5 seconds.

Our Ez  Toss is rechargeable and can also be plugged in for unlimited swings.

Its priced in the middle ranges of all soft toss machines and is used widely with travel teams due to its rechargebale ability and small size that will easily fit your car trunk
