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.

Here's some information provided by the manufacturer

The 3 Wheel Pitching Machine Advantage

Easier Visibility - The baseball is visible when it leaves the feeder’s hand until it's pitched allowing batter to "time" the pitches.

Greater Accuracy - Triple Play Basic’s 3 wheel pitching moperation is more accurate than many 2 wheel models due to 3 points of grip on the ball. 

Less time Between Pitches - The 3 wheel design requires significantly less movement of the throwing mechanism to produce different pitches so pitch changes take less time.

Versatile & Simple Transport - Triple Play Basic moves easily to & from the ballfield with built-in transport wheels.

AC/DC Capability 
No electrical outlet is not an issue with our Triple Play Basic. DC power means you won’t need a noisy generator. Plug in the optional b
attery pack & get 4 hours of continuous pitches. The External HD Battery Pack is complete with its own internal battery charger!

What JP Says about the TriplePlay Basic 3 Wheel Baseball Pitching Machine | 40 - 85 MPH

3 Wheel Pitching Machines Offer More Features & Ease Of Use!

It's taken me a long tome to come around to this new style of wheel pitching machine; probably because 2 wheel machines have been around for so long and they seem to work just fine...and they do!

But, like your old computer & cell phone, you get real happy when you replace what you had.

Although you can live without a 3 wheel pitching machine, wait until you use one! It's easier to switch between pitches & fine tune too. There's more accuracy and so much less wasted time and repositioning.

The design also allows batters to see the pitch all the way to the "release point" so it's never out of sight... a nice feature to help with batter's timing and a criticism of all wheel pitching machines.


Have You Seen The Triple Play Pro Model?

If you like this 3 wheel concept and have about another $1,000 for automating your pitch selection... check out the sister TriplePlay Pro Pitching Machine. Virtually the same guts but with a brand new digital control panel that controls speed plus push button ease to pitch fastballs, curves, sliders and sinkers . There's even a Fastpitch Triple Play Pro Model For Softball that allows about every pitch you could want... Click top right picture on this page to see this product... A Great Buy!
