Does Hitting A Light Ball Cause Any Negative Swing Mechanics?
I’ve been asked often as to whether hitting off a light ball pitching machine is a good or bad idea… It just seems wrong to some. The answer is really quite simple, there is no difference! I don’t care if you are swinging at rocks… a light ball pitching machine is a great training devise!
Keep Swinging & Keep Learning & You Will Continue To Improve!
The difference-maker in your baseball life may be whether you’re swing enough & are you doing it correctly & with focus!
The more important aspect is “correct” and “more” and with that in mind, another bright garage engineer came up with lighter balls that require less power to propel them and lighter weight portable backyard batting cages that will withstand these lighter weight balls!
More Batting Practice Swings & Less Cost!
The Heater Slider is great where limited size backyards & perhaps budget is 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 left the game before finding out how good they actually could be! So, any player who is so fortunate to be able to swing a lot can get very good, very quick and then find out how far it takes them. It almost has to be in the backyard unless there is a very interested parent with tons of available spare time and who want to get in the car every time their player wants to hit.
And now, with more inexpensive lighter-weight backyard baseball pitching machines, balls and batting cages… it becomes a no-brainer to afford… and they fit small backyards!
You Now Have Options Like Never Before!
- The Slider Light Ball Pitching Machine
- The Slider Power Alley Backyard Batting Cage in 22 ft. or 44 ft. long
Start With Your Budget & Go From There
If you have read this far, the Slider Pitching Machine is probably of interest and in your price range, so let’s complete the thought process and talk about pushing forward or moving away from it.
A batting cage is truly an important piece because too many pitching machines get left under-used… probably in the garage when there isn’t a batting cage.
Add a small footprint, portable batting cage right out your back door… and pitching machine use goes way up… translating into thousands more swings & a much-improved hitter… which makes players want to hit even more… which turns them into an even better hitter!
With a lite ball pitching machine like the Heater Slider, you can add an inexpensive 22 foot long Power Alley Batting Cage for an unbelievably low price and be up and running in an hour after you receive the boxes from UPS (around 7 or so days).
