The Designated Hitter Pitching Training Aid
I heard a big-time MLB power arm say that in 50% of his starts, “I do not have my ‘A Game’. Now I have got to really pitch.”
A recent Hall of Famer recently said that as the season grinds on, his arm feels great about one start each month! Yet he certainly finds ways to win more than once a month.
All pitchers need a shot of confidence with their control on given days!
There’s nothing better than to go out in the bullpen and work the corners, develop patterns and make adjustments in a game-like setting.
And having a batter who won’t rush the mound is also a plus!…lol.

The Designated Hitter (DH) is a life-like, heavy-duty polyethylene silhouette figure of a batter who stands in at the plate in place of a real batter. This adds a critical element of reality to pitching practice. Rather than simply throwing to a catcher behind a plate, the pitcher is practicing in a more game-like setting.
Available in two sizes (each figure bats both right- and left-handed), the DH is weather resistant, durable, and holds its shape under severe abuse. There’s even a unique Inside Pitch Attachment to help pitchers throw inside with confidence so when it’s time to jam a hitter, they won’t leave the ball out over the plate.
Because the DH clearly displays a hitter’s key location points – knees, elbows, hands and stance – your pitchers learn to make the proper corrections to locate the ball where they want it, time after time. And with each pitch, they’re building confidence. It’s confidence they can take with them to the hill and use in any situation!
“Are you afraid to throw inside? Learn to do it effectively with this great tool.”
– Byron Embry, Minor League pitcher
“It is the best product of its kind on the market. I like it because it is realistic, sturdy, easy to move, and in one piece.”
– Geoff Zahn, Major League pitcher (1973-1985)
“We use it in our pre-game warm-ups and 90% of our bullpen work. The fact that the DH is flat has minimized my concern about ricochets into my catcher. What a great tool for my guys!”
– Fred Corral, Pitching Coach, University of Missouri
