Which BATA Pitching Machine Is My Best Bet?

Every BATA pitching machine is a quality product that will not disappoint. All models feature made in USA quality, are lighter & more portable than the biggest brand, have variable speeds & can be used with leather & dimple balls for BP, ground ball or fly ball drills, BATA auto ball feeders and the cordless remote control that you really want. Now let’s whittle down your baseball or softball model decision right here: (you can click to go to the individual product page to buy right away!)

BATA 1 Pitching Machine – This is a plain vanilla workhorse and should be considered when money is your issue. Thousands of quality swings is key to player potential so if this coincides with the budget, make your decision right here!

BATA 1 Pro Curve Ball Pitching Machine – This is one of my favorite pitching machines…period! You get plenty of VELO (velocity) at 70+ MPH and if you still insist on more speed but your budget won’t allow, place this model closer and watch batter's reaction time decrease and 70 mph feel like a mid 80’s fastball! The ability for players to see a LH or RH high school grade curveball/slider is huge… especially for this price. My final bragging point is that it weighs around 60 lbs, so is reasonably portable.

BATA 2 Pitching Machine – This has been the standard in pro and college ball for years (I want to say that there are 12 MLB ballclubs who use BATA at last count). Unfortunately, too many coaches really don’t know this brand so they buy what they know & end up with last century technology; heavy, hard to move, harder to adjust between pitch-types. This models throws a ridiculous 105 MPH (that you do not need) but it does this at less RPM’s on the motor…that’s about efficiency and has a lot to do in that we went 8 years before we replaced a motor and a full season without replacing any wheels too! Lighter, stronger and simple to adjust for the same or less money than most all others!

BATA Twin Pitch aka BATA 1 Twin Pitch Pitching Machine – This is the choice for those who want batters to see two different pitches in one set up. It’s basically two BATA 1 pitching machines mounted on one frame. This means that max speed will be 70 MPH+. (If you feel you need more VELO, our BATA 3 is your play)!

BATA 3 aka BATA 2 Pitch 3 Pitching Machine – Here’s the right model if you want to see a fastball up to 95 MPH plus a curveball/slider up to 75 MPH in one set up. It’s just an awesome purchase with its efficiency and simplicity built right in! BATA 4 aka BATA 2 Pitch 4 Pitching Machine – Throw any two pitches that you adjust up to 95! it's two BATA 2 pitching machine heads mounted on one platform (hint, buy the optional rolling cart as it’s quite heavy). Both heads operate independently so you have complete control over each pitch with simple controls! There’s no computer to learn or malfunction…its completely mechanical so it’s what you are used to!

BATA 4 aka BATA 2 Pitch 4 Pitching Machine– Throw any two pitches at any speed up to 95 MPH! Two BATA 2 pitching machine heads mounted on one platform (hint, buy the optional rolling cart as it’s quite heavy). And like the BATA 3, both pitching machine heads will operate independently so you retain complete control over each pitch with simple controls! There’s no computer to learn or malfunction…its completely mechanical so it’s what you are used to!

Bata 2 Frequently Asked Questions

How fast does a BATA II go?
Maximum: 109 miles per hour; minimum: 20 miles per hour.
How do you adjust the speed?
The speed is electronically controlled. You adjust the speed by turning the dials.
What kinds of balls with it throw?
Leather balls, dimpled balls, and wiffleballs. Tennis balls can be thrown up to about 2/3 of the regular speeds.
What pitches will it throw?
The BATA II can throw any pitch that a real pitcher can pitch (fastball, curve, slider, knuckleball, etc.)
How do you make it throw different pitches?
Different pitches are thrown by altering the delivery angle of the wheels and by altering the speeds of the wheels. To throw a fastball, the wheels are normally positioned vertically (one over the other). The top wheel is set about 30 points slower than the bottom wheel, giving the pitch a backspin, which counteracts gravity and keeps the pitch from sinking. To throw a curve, the wheels may be positioned for an overhand, � or sidearm delivery. The top wheel is set about 2 to 3 times faster than the bottom wheel, giving the pitch forward spin, which makes the ball break.. THE ADJUSTMENTS ARE QUICK AND SIMPLE!
Can the machine throw grounders and flies?
Yes. The BATA II has a swivel base which allows you to throw grounders or flies to anywhere on the field. The two-motor design allows you to change the spin; backspin for flies, forward spin for grounders. ..THE ADJUSTMENTS ARE QUICK AND SIMPLE!
How do you convert it from baseball to softball?
There are three things that need to be done. The entire process takes about 5 - 10 minutes. The gap between the wheels must be widened by repositioning the motors. There are four bolts that hold each motor mount. The feed chute must be changed to the softball feed chute. Four bolts hold it in place. The legs may be changed from the baseball legs to the softball legs. ... THE ADJUSTMENTS ARE QUICK AND SIMPLE!
to transport it, do you roll it on the pitching wheels like a JUGS?
No. The BATA II has it's own built-in transport wheels. Never allow anything but baseballs or softballs to touch the wheels!
Why should I buy a BATA II instead of a JUGS?
The JUGS uses pneumatic tires for pitching wheels, which have a convex (rounded) surface. The BATA II has BATA's own Soft-Thread Pitching Wheels. The rim underneath the soft tread is concave, which has the same effect as a concave wheel. The BATA II throws more accurate, more consistent pitches It grabs onto more of the pitched ball!
The BATA II is easier to use. The JUGS has a ball-joint, which combines all of the adjustments into one. When you loosen the ball-joint to change one adjustment, you change all three, whether you want to or not. The BATA II has three separate joints, which work independently, making adjustments easy and effortless. .. THE ADJUSTMENTS ARE QUICK AND SIMPLE!
The BATA II weights about 40 pounds less than a JUGS. If you have ever set-up or moved a JUGS you know how much that extra 40 pounds really means. You won't "fight" with a BATA pitching machine.
All BATA machines can be converted from baseball to softball, or vice versa, at any time.
Why should I buy a BATA II instead of an ATEC Casey?
Bata II machines can throw right-handed and left-handed (by tilting the head). Most ATEC machines throw only right-handed.
BATA II machines have a swivel base, which allows you to throw grounders or flies anywhere on the field, and change the inside/outside aim without moving the legs of the machine. The ATEC machine has a rigid base, & doesn't swivel.. THE ADJUSTMENTS ARE QUICK AND SIMPLE!
The BATA II machine has a maximum speed of 105 miles per hour, compared to the ATEC's 92 mph. This may be most important for outfield and fly ball drills.
Who uses BATA II machines(The Big Names)?
The Toronto Blue Jays, Oakland A's, Milwaukee Brewers, Detroit Tigers, Arizona Diamondbacks, San Diego Padres, and Anaheim Angels profession organizations, as well as notable pros, former pros and coaches like Mike Hargrove, Robin Yount, and Damien Easley to name a few.
How long do the wheels last?
About 5 years for the average person or team. Yes they are replaceable.
Can I leave my machine outside?
No. These machines contain electronics. Water or moisture can damage the motors and speed controller. Over-exposure to direct sunlight may shorten the life of the wheels. We recommend building an enclosure (or at least a roof) over the machine if it is to be left in a batting cage. The machine must be stored so that moisture is not allowed to get to it. These machines are built tough but still require common - sense care.
If I have a problem, how do I get it fixed?
BATA machines are made so that each of the main components may be easily removed. If there is a problem, the customer should call BATA for instructions. We can usually diagnose a problem over the phone and offer a solution, which can usually be handled by the customer. If there is a major problem which cannot be easily diagnosed and fixed, the machine should be shipped to BATA for repairs. BATA may sometimes authorize local repair shops to perform the work.
