An Inexpensive Soft Toss Machine May Be All You Need
The Heater Big League Soft Toss aka Big League Drop Toss is the least expensive soft toss machine we have seen. The simple design and easy adjustments give it a lot of value for any youth age ballplayer.
It’s perfect for those who have a small area yet want to track and hit the ball in the backyard or basement. It is easy to set up and use, can be plugged into a wall socket with the AC Adapter or used with “C” size batteries. We suggest the optional 8 hr rechargeable model if it’s within your budget.
Here’s How it Works
The auto feeder holds a dozen leather of dimple baseballs that when is released from the feeder, simply picks up speed while going down the slide
until it jumps off the ramp and “flips” into a slightly upward and outward arc… into your strike zone!
The hitter puts a good swing on it (preferably into a time-saving catch net).
This allows for reinforcing the value of the batters swinging on-time and gives hundreds of swings in a short period of time and in a very limited space…
Just Add A Catch Net To Make A Complete Soft Toss Station
Soft Toss drills are almost always done as a complete station that includes a net or screen to contain balls so that players can quickly get the number of quality swings that it takes to actually improve… without the boring shagging of balls in the outfield that reduces the effectiveness of the drills. More time shagging is less time hitting! Have a look at our collection of catch nets on the side of this page for my recommendations. Good stuff that won’t break the bank!
Finally, an affordable backyard toss station when combined with any of our catch nets!
A solo player soft toss hitting station that can be used for all ages & skill levels!
Hint: choose our optional 8 hr rechargeable battery model! You are going to want to move this between house & ballfield!
A Backyard To Ballpark Soft Toss Station On A Budget | 1 Player – 115 Swings in 30 Easy Minutes
Here’s The Math
Each ball is released every 8 seconds x 12 balls per each rack. This takes 96 seconds per rack. Add 90 seconds per rack to pick up balls in your catch net, or take a break between racks, and you should get 115 swings (give or take) in 30 minutes (1800 seconds).
And that’s just hitting and picking up and not rushing! It’s the repeating of quality swings that becomes the real difference-maker… A complete soft toss station is a very affordable way to help a young player!
Our Big League Drop Toss | Available In 2 Models
We offer the Basic Heater Drop Toss machine aka Heater Big League Pro as a portable unit that is powered by 4 C size batteries (buy the good Duracells) and as a bonus… we will include the 110v AC Power Adapter with it. Just plug it in and hit/
However, do consider the Long Life Heater Big League Pro, 8-hour rechargeable version, simply for its flexibility… even good alkaline batteries wear out at the wrong time and you will easily be able to set up anywhere from the backyard, basement, garage in colder months and of course, to the ballpark…No power or cord needed though you can still use the AC adapter which plugs into your standard wall outlet!
Our newest Heater Big League Soft Toss Machine is perfect for those who have a small area yet want to track and hit the ball in the backyard or basement. It is easy to set up and use, can be plugged into a wall socket or used with “C” size batteries. We suggest the optional 8 hr rechargeable model if it’s within your budget.
I believe that over the course of a baseball career, no matter when that ends, a player may actually take more soft toss swings than live pitching swings. It is the “next building block” and simply adds ball tracking to your batting tee work! Our new Heater Big League Soft Toss Machine from our friends at Trend Sports is our first entry-level soft toss machine. The price certainly makes it a strong consideration for the youth player and for those on a budget.
You have to learn to swing better, then swing more to get better!
“The Big League Pro Baseball Soft Toss machine develops perfect bat timing. It forces my son to focus on hitting a moving pitch. This has really helped him make the transition from T- Ball to Pitch League.”
