Our most popular types of pitching machines. Available in backyard training versions in 1 & 2 wheel models for lighter duty & 1,2 & 3 wheel pro models. Balls are propelled using a spinning wheel(s) & a motor. Angle-adjustments allow for all types of pitches to be thrown, depending on the machine. Most, are manually fed. Optional ball feeders are available. We suggest buying based on your budget!


Soft toss machines aka softtoss are automated versions for the drills that go beyond batting tee. They help add the dimension of timing and balance to the tee drills we all do and are extremely important building blocks for all hitters of any age or skill level. Like any other piece of automated equipment, they exist to make our lives easier and are perfect for solo batting practice.
