The JUGS Jr.™ is a baseball/softball pitching machine. For baseball, the JUGS Jr.™ comes complete with a baseball chute and long straight legs, and for softball, a softball chute and curved legs. Set up for either sport, pitches are thrown from a realistic release point and throwing consistent strikes so your players can confidently step into the batter's box and start swinging, since they know that each and every pitch is going to be a strike.

For youngsters just starting out in the game nothing is better than repetition of fundamental skills. By using the Jr.™ Pitching  Machine, young ball players get to hone their swings because pitches arrive in virtually the same location each time. That makes the challenge of hitting a little easier and a lot more fun.

The JUGS Jr. Pitching machine can also be purchased in the JUGS Youth League Package™.
