A Light Ball Pitching Machine | An Inexpensive Fastball & Curve Solution
A light ball pitching machine is a good purchase on many levels!
For those with limited space, for those on a limited budget, for those who really need to see more offspeed and breaking balls than they are currently getting… all good reasons. The Heater Slider light ball pitching machine is not a toy, though it is as much fun!
Does Hitting Off A Light Ball Pitching Machine Cause Any Negative Swing Mechanics?
I’ve been asked often… whether hitting a light ball is a good or a bad idea… it just seems wrong to some.
My answer is really quite simple… there is no discernible difference. The difference-maker may very likely be whether players swing enough, and are they doing it correctly!
I don’t care if you swing at 1,000 rocks… you will likely got better. Take those same swings but add focus and goals… you’re even better!
The more important aspect is “correct” and “more” and with that in mind, another bright garage-engineer developed the light ball pitching machine. It requires less power to propel the light ball of an official baseball size, and was matched with lightweight & shorter length backyard batting cages to.
All of this has the side benefit of costing less while taking up less backyard space!
More Batting Practice Swings & Less Cost!
The Heater Slider is great where limited size backyard & perhaps where budget becomes the difference between having a backyard batting station or not!
I’ve met very few good young hitters who didn’t like playing the game of baseball. But I have met many who have left the game before they found out how good they could actually be.
So, for any player who is fortunate enough to be able to swing a lot, can get very good, very quick and then find out how far they can go in this game.
It almost has to be in the backyard unless there is a very interested parent with tons of spare time and are willing to get in the car and go somewhere any time their player wants to hit. So now, with the more inexpensive light ball pitching machines and affordable backyard batting cages, it becomes a no-brainer for many!

Start With Your Budget & Consider A Batting Cage… now or in the future
If you have read this far, this Slider Pitching Machine is likely of interest and in your price range,
so let’s complete the thought process.
Adding a backyard batting cage may actually be the more important baseball training piece…
nobody like shagging balls. I see way too many underused pitching machines.
Adding a small footprint, portable backyard batting cage right out your backdoor to an affordable pitching machine will translate into thousands of swings that otherwise would never have been taken! Add those same swings and you have a much-improved hitter, which makes players want to take more swings, which turns them into even better hitters!
That’s what I believe.
I hope my thoughts have helped you.
