Improve your game with the Hack Attack Baseball Pitching Machine. Although this pitching machine is designed for baseball, an optional softball conversion kit is available for an additional cost.
The Hack Attack has a unique three-wheel design that allows you to clearly see the ball all the way through the feeding motion, acceleration, and release – just like a live pitcher.
With this design, the hitter sees when to stride and the angle of release, giving him an actual live-arm sense of timing and location. With a quick turn of the Hack Attack dials, effortlessly throw major league fastballs and right- and left-handed breaking pitches including curveballs, sliders, and split fingers.
Also, the three-wheels change the breaking pitch plane by simply adjusting wheel speed dials. In contrast, two-wheel units need time-consuming, awkward throwing head adjustments to switch from fastballs to curveballs or right- to left-handed breaking pitches.
The Hack Attack’s elevation adjustment handle will raise or lower the pitch. With a simple turn, move the pitch up or down within the strike zone between pitches. In contrast, two-wheel pitching machines often need the user to manually release a lock and move the entire throwing head by tilting it. Then, the user needs to lock it back up before use.
First, the Hack Attack Baseball Pitching Machine is heavy enough to absorb recoil, which ensures accuracy, yet portable and easily moved by one person.
Next, the machine stays stable and safe on pitching mounds and other surfaces with its extra wide tripod base.
Also, the throwing mechanism is well protected. Since the throwing head is made of weather-resistant aluminum casting and high tensile, heat-treated alloy.
On top of that, the powder-coated steel frame is rugged, rust-proof, and can withstand limitless seasons of use. While the Hack Attack’s throwing wheels can handle direct sunlight (unlike some brands) and they out-last the other pitching machine’s wheels.
Lastly, the Hack Attack has three strong motors that power three durable, concave 14-inch throwing wheels. These motors also offer variable speeds for more versatile pitching options.
Simply pivot the throwing head for all fungo work, which includes:
With limited throwing head adjustments and almost instant recovery, practice time is spent on practice – not adjustments.
To move the Hack Attack, quickly tilt it, remove the legs from their sockets, then roll the unit on its two, heavy-duty transport wheels (not the throwing wheels). The front wheel guards protect the throwing wheels from the ground. Because of this, the wheels don’t pick up gravel which causes damage over time.
The Hack Attack has an inside/outside adjustment for instant, minute ball location changes at the plate to:
Also, when used in combination with elevation control, move a pitch to any area of the strike zone between pitches.
To get the most out of your machine, use the balls suggested by the manufacturer. In this case, the manufacturer suggests the following: Baden Kevlar Seamed Ballistic Leather, Baden Dimpled Baseballs, or Baden Dimpled Softballs
Additionally, the Hack Attack pitching machine is designed for use with “real” leather baseballs designed for pitching machines, dimpled practice balls, wiffle balls, and all softer practice balls. Pitching machines are not made to be used with regulation balls, even though many machines can throw these balls. However, regulation balls are not made for machine compatibility and will wear down not only your machines but also your balls.
No assembly is required. The Hack Attack arrives fully assembled and ready for your immediate use.

When using a pitching machine, it seems like the ball is moving faster or slower depending on your distance from the machine. In fact, the ball's speed remains constant. If pitched at 60 mph, it travels at 60 mph. However, the machine's distance from home plate matters when it comes to batting. Consult the pitching [...]

This article shows the differences between commercial vs residential pitching machines. Commercial Pitching Machines Pitching machines for commercial use should focus on durability for prolonged daily use. They should have large ball hoppers to increase the number of balls that can be thrown per session (hopper size). The large hopper machines typically have the arm [...]
This is the style by which the pitch is thrown. “Wheel design” machines either uses 1, 2, or 3 spinning wheels to propel the ball. Generally the more wheels, the wider variety of pitches that machine can throw, such as curves, sliders, forkballs etc. “Arm-action” machines from the Master Pitch company use a steel arm which rotates around to hurl the ball. The advantage of these machines is the batter’s ability to see the ball for a longer period of time, and work on timing as it’s released from the arm.
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.
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.

All machines ship direct from the manufacturer. This maintains your full warranty, and keeps shipping costs low.
Most manufacturers keep a full supply in stock at all times, but there are periods when they are back-ordered. Just check with us or one of the manufacturers – if they have it in stock, then so do we.
This depends on the machine, but most machines with exception of Iron Mikes can ship via Common Carrier (UPS or Fedex), so average about 20% of the product cost. Iron Mike machines ship Motor Freight and shipping to a business is cheaper than a residence. Just check with us for a quote.
