Bata 1 Frequently Asked Questions

How fast does a BATA 1 go?
65 miles per hour (for both baseball and softball).
At what distance?
Miles per hour is the same regardless of distance. Reaction time is shortened by moving the machine closer to the batter. A 60 mph pitch from 40 feet is equivalent to a 90 mph pitch from 60 feet.
How do you adjust the speed?
The speed is electronically controlled. You simply adjust the speed by turning a dial.
Does it have a digital read-out for the speed?
No. A digital read-out does not measure the speed of the pitch, only the rpm’s of the motor. Our machine has a scale which goes from 20 to 60 miles per hour. It is plenty accurate.
How much does the machine weigh?
The main part of the machine (not including the legs) weighs only 42 pounds. The baseball legs weigh 14 pounds, the softball legs weigh 9 pounds.
Does it come with a warranty?
Yes. BATA machines are covered by a full 5-year factory warranty!
Is there a 30-day trial period or money back guarantee?
No. If we gave a 30-day trial period, we would have too many people purchasing the machines just for their tryouts, then returning them. The machines are guaranteed to work as advertised. If a machine is defective, BATA will repair or replace it.
Can the machine throw grounders and flies?
It will throw fly balls. However, because of the backspin that it puts on the ball, it is not as well suited for throwing grounders.
What kind of balls does it throw?
The BATA 1 can throw real leather balls, dimpled balls, or wiffleballs.
How do you change the combo machine from baseball to softball?
There are three things to do. The entire process takes about 5 minutes.
  1. You must raise the friction plate (pad). It is held by two bolts.
  2. You must replace the baseball feed chute with the softball feed chute. It is held by two bolts. You may (optional) switch from the taller baseball legs to the shorter softball legs.
NOTE: Our machines fit both baseball and softball uses. You can order the conversion kits later
What pitches will The BATA1 throw?
Fastballs only. The BATA 2 is designed for throwing different pitches.
Does it tear up leather balls?
All wheel-type pitching machines will tear up leather balls. How fast depends on the quality of the balls. The BATA 1 throws leather balls very well and is highly recommended for machine-pitch league games. Polyurethane pitching machine balls are recommended for all other use.
How many balls will the machine hold?
The pitching machines themselves do not hold any balls. Pitching machines either feed one ball at a time or use an automatic ball feeder. Our ball feeders hold either 20 baseballs or 15 softballs. The Combination Feeder can be set up to do either size (not both at the same time). Ball feeders feed balls at 5 second intervals, an ideal "wait time" between pitches.
