Here's a Baseball Soft Toss Machine that gives you tons of swings at a moving ball in a small area!
Holds 12 baseball-size balls
& delivers every 9 seconds
Our newest Soft Toss station is perfect for those who have a small area yet want to track and hit the ball in the backyard or basement (the natural progression that goes along with your batting tee station). It is easy to set up and use, can be plugged into a wall socket or used with "C" size batteries. We suggest the optional 8 hr rechargeable model if it's within your budget.
The Big League Pro, formerly Scorpion, delivers the tosses (aka flip drills) every 9 seconds
(leather, dimples or whiffle balls will all work well).
When the ball is released from the feeder, it simply picks up speed while going down the slide until it jumps off the ramp and "flips" into a slightly upward and outward arc... into your strike zone.
The hitter puts a good swing on it (preferably into a time saving catch net).
Each ball is released every 9 seconds x 12 balls per each rack.
This takes 108 seconds per rack. Add 90 seconds per rack to pick up balls in your catch net, or take a break between racks, and you should get 109 swings (give or take) in 30 minutes (1800 seconds).
And that's taking your time and not rushing!
"The Scorpion Baseball Soft Toss machine develops perfect bat timing. It forces my son to focus on hitting a moving pitch. This has really helped him make the transition from T- Ball to Pitch League."
-N Reid, San Jose, CA
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, formerly Scorpion, 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.
However, I really prefer that you consider the Long Life Heater Big League Pro, formerly Scorpion, 8 hour rechargeable version, simply for its flexibility... even good alkaline batteries wear out at the wrong time!
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!
I've included a couple of station-combos that include some great nets that can also be used for other fun sports... including golf!
