SKU: HACK Category: Tag:

The Hack Attack has a unique three-wheel design that allows you to see the ball clearly and fully 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 you can effortlessly throw major league fastballs, and right and left handed breaking pitches including curveballs, sliders and split fingers.

This exclusive three-wheel design changes the breaking pitch plane by simply adjusting wheel speed dials. (All two-wheel units require time consuming awkward throwing head adjustments to change 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, you can even move the pitch up or down within the strike zone between pitches. (On two-wheel pitching machines it may be necessary to release a locking mechanism, reposition the entire throwing head by tilting manually and then re-locking the locking mechanism. These are awkward time-consuming adjustments.)

New Features on the 2015 Hack Attack
Introducing the new Inside/Outside Control

Now both the Hack Attack and the Junior Hack Attack will include an inside/outside adjustment that provides instant location change, giving the machines a whole new dimension. This feature will:

  • Center the first pitch without having to shift the entire machine (no more kicking of back leg)
  • Allow the operator to move the pitch inside or outside with a simply turn of a handle
  • In combination with the elevation control, quickly move a pitch to any area of the strike zone between pitches

The machines still lock to repeat pitches and still release to do all of the fungo work.

The Throwing head of the Hack Attack pivots instantly in any direction for all fungo work including deep fly balls that can drive fielders to the fence, slicing line drives, catcher’s pop-ups with reverse spin, towering infield pop-ups, and grounders.

This effective training tool makes most efficient use of practice time with limited throwing head adjustments needed and an almost instant recovery time. More strikes delivered at every practice!

The Hack Attack pitching machine quickly moves on and off the field by just tilting it, un-socketing the legs and easily rolling it on two heavy-duty transporting wheels (not the throwing wheels).

The front wheel guards insure the throwing wheels never come in contact with the ground. (Some machines are moved using throwing wheels, picking up dangerous dirt and gravel that causes inaccuracy and wear.)

The Hack Attack pitching machine is designed for use with regulation leather baseballs, dimpled practice balls, Wiffle® balls and all softer practice balls. (Not synthetic leather balls as they wear quickly and will leave a residue on the wheel.)

No assembly is required; the Hack Attack arrives fully assembled and ready for your immediate use.

Exceptional Pitching Machine Quality

The Hack Attack baseball pitching machine is heavy enough to absorb recoil, ensuring accuracy, yet portable and easily moved by one person.

The extra wide tripod base insures real stability and safety on pitching mounds or baseball playing surfaces.

High tensile, tough heat-treated alloy, weather-resistant aluminum casting throwing head, protects throwing mechanism.

Rugged powder-coated rust-proof steel frame ensures limitless seasons of use.

The throwing wheels out-last all other baseball pitching machine wheels and don’t melt in direct summer heat. Sports Attack has never replaced a wheel from wear or heat exposure.

Three powerful variable speed motors drive three indestructible concave 14″ throwing wheels.

The Design
Our design began by identifying wheels as the most efficient ball throwing mechanism. Wheels can control ball spin, throw breaking pitches, provide accuracy, and deliver the much-needed speed. The true uniqueness to our machine is the use of a third wheel. The location of the three wheels visually opens the ball chute, allowing the hitter to see the ball through acceleration and release, providing complete vision and timing. By simply changing wheel speed, any breaking pitch could be instantly dialed in as the third wheel eliminated the need to pivot the throwing head when changing pitches. Accuracy, ball control and speed were also improved due to the increased amount of ball surface being captured. Additional benefits of the third wheel were a reduction of throwing wheel and ball wear.

Other important characteristics of the design were to incorporate safety features that kept the operator protected from moving parts. Ease of vertical and horizontal controls were also key for pitch location and fungo work. In addition, portability was a requirement, providing mobility on and off the field for ease of use, storage and transport.
