The Heater Jr Pitching Machine Is A Step Above Entry Level

Buy What Your Budget Says
Considering this Heater Jr Pitching Machine? If you like the Heater Sports line up of youth pitching machines and this is the top of your budget, perhaps you have found your model. I continue to advise customers that they should bump up against their budget when considering our training products!
There isn’t any practical reason to throw the budget overboard.

This is a step above our entry-level Heater Base Hit Pitching Machine. it throws regulation size leather baseballs and dimple baseballs as well as lite balls. The Heater Jr adds about $100 to our entry-level and in return, it throws with slightly more velocity; a good choice for a 1st pitching machine.

The Heater Jr. is quite easy to use. It has the velocity as well as a variable speed control, ranging from 15 to 48 mph, which is plenty for your youth player(s), especially at their shorter pitching distances!

When coupled with our optional Xtender Batting Cage, the maximum 48 mph velocity seems like it’s increased due to the short distance between pitching machine and your hitter. Shortening the distance reduces the time to react to a pitch, which is the equivalent of hitting a faster pitch.

The other major feature worth mentioning is the machine’s ability to throw a variety of baseball sized balls. from whiffle balls to safety balls to leather baseballs and our recommended yellow machine pitch dimple balls.

Here’s My Product Overview From Testing The Heater Jr Pitching Machine

  1. Like the entry-level Heater Base Hit Pitching Machine, this machine works best from shorter pitching distances of no more than 46 feet.
  2. Use our yellow machine pitch dimple baseballs, rather than leather or whiffle balls. The dimples offered better accuracy and add velocity.
  3. This model is aimed at younger players up to 11 or perhaps 12 years of age and for those where price is an ultimate deciding factor. For more features & horsepower, you may want to consider our “steel-case” and slightly more expensive 50+ MPH Heater Baseball Pitching Machine or the Heater Pro Curve Pitching Machine.

The Heater Jr. Pitching Machine Is An Above Entry-Level Baseball Pitching Machine

Comments From The Manufacturer
The Heater Junior is the most affordable pitching machine in its category on the market, and budget-minded parents of younger ballplayers have been very pleased with the performance of The Heater Junior. Its strong ¼ horsepower motor delivers accurate pitches every time. The variable speed control dial easily adjusts pitch speeds from 15 to 48 mph, and the inflatable air filled tire cushions the ball, which improves pitch accuracy and reduces wear on the ball itself. The rugged tripod stand is made of galvanized steel tubing and the durable nylon fiberglass housing is both lightweight & high impact resistant.
