Programmable Pitching Machines | The 21st Century Is Here
It’s taken me a long while to come around to the idea of a 3 wheel programmable pitching machine; probably because 2 wheel pitching machines have been around for so long & they really work just fine. But, like your old computer & flip phone, you are happier when you finally replace that old “habit”.
Although you can live without a 3 wheel pitching machine, it is easier to switch between pitches and quicker to fine tune, too. There also tends to be more accurate, with the ball being gripped on 3 sides… less power transfer is needed with 3 motors instead of 2! The design also allows batters to see the pitch all the way to the “release point” so it’s never out of sight… a nice feature to help with batter’s timing a criticism of all-wheel pitching machines.
Pushbutton Pitch Selection & Only 30 Seconds Between Pitch Change
This programmable pitching machine model will get your attention for its push-button ease as well as the 3 wheel design. (check out the close-up picture of the control panel and you will see the distinct benefits.
And if you like the concept but balk at the price tag, you may want to check out the sister TriplePlay Basic Pitching Machine. Virtually the same guts but with traditional hand-turned dials and speed controls (for around $1,000 less)… a great buy!

THE THREE WHEEL PITCHING MACHINE ADVANTAGE
Visibility… The Baseball is visible from the time it leaves the feeder’s hand until it is pitched, unlike two-wheel pitching machines in which the ball is hidden by the throwing wheels before being pitched. This allows the hitter to more naturally time the pitches.
Accuracy… TriplePlay Pro’s three-wheel pitching mechanism is more accurate than two wheels with more gripping surface is put on the ball. Time. The three-wheel design requires significantly less movement of the throwing mechanism to produce different pitches than does a two-wheel machine. Oversized knobs for height and direction control help quickly fine-tune pitch location, so changing pitches takes less than 30 seconds.
