Programmable Pitching Machine
The Ultimate Home Plate Triple Play pitching machine can simulate almost any pitcher that you are likely to face. It can throw a 90 mph fastball, followed by a 75 mph curve, followed by a change-up, followed by a slider. And it can do it all automatically with only seven seconds between pitches. Put that scouting report on your next opposing pitcher to real use by programming his pitches into the Home Plate machine, then select random pitch order to simulate that pitcher for a game-like practice. The Home Plate machine can also throw stored pitches in sequential order, or you can practice repeatedly against any individual pitch.
This machine is completely programmable, allows you to randomize pitches, or design a custom teaching program. Direction, elevation, break, and speed are all controlled by an intuitive computer control board. Need to raise the pitch higher in the strike zone? Just press the up button, and store the pitch in one of eight programmable memory locations. Your "stored" pitches can be any combination of fastballs, curves, sliders ...whatever you want!
The Ultimate Home Plate Pitching Machine uses a patented three-wheel pitching mechanism that is more accurate than two wheels because it puts more gripping surface on the ball. It also features an innovative sound and light system designed to help batters time the pitches, as well as enhance safety. About two seconds prior to each pitch the Home Plate machine will beep, which warns everybody near the machine that a pitch is coming. The batter sees a sequence of three lights just above the exit point - giving him visual cues comparable to a live pitching motion.
The sequence is as follows: Beep (the pitcher sets), Red light blinks (the pitcher starts his motion), Yellow light blinks (the pitcher winds up), Green light blinks (the pitcher arm is coming forward) and finally the ball is released.
Includes an 80 ball top-load hopper.
Save your money and find another option. We bought two of these a few years ago. One has been retired by the school because it wouldn’t keep running and the one at our indoor has been broke for far longer than it has worked. In the beginning they sent replacement parts wheels, fuses, etc the machine continued to break down. So after it sitting for months in our cages not working I called to asked about it. Upon his diagnosis it’s a motor. Well that would be about the 4th or 5th time for that. This time he wants $250 for it. I told him I would let it continue to sit. He then offered to buy it from me. Check the pricing, he offered me a $1000. I told him I would rather drop it in the lake. Trying to save someone else the hassle
A friend has it and he said it has helped his kid tremendously
