Our softball machines throw from a lowered height to create a realistic experience, and can also throw a variety of pitches including rising fastballs.

Top Pitching Machines Questions

The draw-back of arm-action machines is that they can only throw fastballs, no “junk” pitches.

Wheel machines help batters practice their timing. To ensure more time between ball release and pitch, choose a machine with a long and highly visible “entry chute.” Then, the operator releases the ball and the machine throws it.

We suggest buying from one of the five manufacturers listed above. Yes, there are alternatives. However, these five companies have a proven track record and stand behind their products. Although the emergence of other companies to compete would improve the industry, until then, we can’t recommend other manufacturers. Because of how much use machines receive, it’s key to pick a machine with years of prototyping under its belt, a high-quality motor, and great mechanics.

To find the right machine for practice, look for one that can throw different ball types, like synthetic PVC, dimpled, and leather. Leather balls are ideal for experienced batters, while dimpled balls are safer for young, inexperienced players and work well in practice environments.

Always use balls suggested by the manufacturer or ask for their referral on the best ball to use with their machines. The manufacturer calibrates the machine to pitch a specific density ball at maximum speed and performance, so it’s crucial to follow their advice. Here are the recommendations for the machines we carry:

Another key point – NEVER use regulation balls as they wear down not only the machines but also the balls. When a machine states it throws real balls, they mean it feels, sounds, and reacts like a real game ball.
