Here’s The Original Heater Pitching Machine
The Heater Pitching Machine changed backyard baseball training!
There was just nothing available in this inexpensive price point (unless you count toys). And from its 1st season, it has performed as well as anyone could have expected. The very portable steel case that protected the wheel and those around it for what was 1/2 the cost of so many plain vanilla pitching machines. It has proven to be a workhorse with very few problems.
This machine is so light, convenient and accurate, It has become our #1 selling youth baseball and softball pitching machine. You cannot find more pitching machine for their breakthrough price… And with our free shipping, you will not find it for less!
The popular affordable Heater Pitching Machine throws 9 12″ softballs up to 50 mph or 12 baseballs up to 52 mph from regulation pitching distances with it’s optional ball feeder. It just might be the most efficient backyard pitching machine available.
Great for teams on a budget, the Heater is light & convenient, with lots of power and ability for such a small machine. Plus, the pitching wheel has been upgraded from molded rubber to an air-filled tire. This new wheel improves pitch accuracy while reducing wear on the ball! Just plug it in and hit!

A Typical Testimonial
“I actually had another brand of pitching machine on order when I came across your website and found the “Heater” pitching machine. After reading and putting some time into comparing the two I canceled my order for the other machine and purchased the Heater. I have turned my Heater pitching machine over to my son’s Little League team and boy has it been a real “HIT,” excuse the pun. I can honestly say that even after only 4 practices with the “Heater” our team has improved on their batting skills significantly.”

Notes: Both Coach JP and the manufacturer’s warning labels strongly urge the use of machine pitch dimple balls with this machine. These are the seamless yellow balls you see being used at batting cages. They are the same size and weight as leather game balls, but they fly straighter and last longer, plus they are easier on players’ hands and bats. We cannot guarantee dimple ball quality other than what we offer so please be aware that cheap means cheap when it comes to dimple balls.
The Heater is a 110v plug-in pitching machine. It does not come in a rechargeable model, but you can use a generator or battery pack, which you can buy locally. Just make sure the generator/battery pack can handle 350-400 watts.
