Buying The Right Pitching Machine & Batting Cage
I always advise customers to bump up against your budget and select the longest batting cage that fits both budget and available space.
About Batting Cage Length
The length of a batting cage will never dictate future success, so don’t sweat the length. If it were that important, MLB teams would not take regular batting practice from 45 feet on a pitching platform & behind a pitcher’s protective L Screen placed in front of the pitching rubber!
A Fastball Pitching Machine Is The Standard & Carries Least Cost
These are usually 1 wheel pitching machine models where a wheel is rapidly turned by a small 1/3 or even 1/4 horsepower electric motor. Of course, the Iron Mike arm style pitching machines are available as well. They also only throw a fastball but have the advantage of an included auto ball feeder.
More Wheels & Motors Mean Multiple Pitch Types & Increased Velo
2,3,4 wheel pitching machines also allow ability to throw curveball, slider & all other MLB pitches.
About Pitching Machine Velocity
Velocity is overrated for batting practice & at shorter distances, the reaction time needed serves the function of significantly increased speeds! A curveball plus fastball machine is valuable & great for kids from age 11 or so, but should not be a deal-breaker.
Why This Can Be A Critical Purchase
Can you imagine your player trying to become successful as a musician if he or she does not own that musical instrument? The magic is all about the opportunity to practice when you can and when you want.
Who gets the opportunity to swing thousands of times is the same player who gets to the top of his game!
My Bottom Line Thoughts
I have never coached a ballplayer lucky enough to have the ability to walk out the back door and hit and hit any-day who did NOT turn out to be at very least… a good hitter!
