    Excellent Machine

    Posted by Jason on 12 May 2020

    Pros: Been using this with my 12 year old son for about 3 weeks since being stuck at home during the Covid pandemic. Before the shutdown he wasn't seeing the ball well, and was striking out a lot for the first time in his life. He's been using it with a hit stick, and it is dramatically improving his ability to track and see the ball. If he gets up there just to swing, he misses them all and get's ticked off. But when he gets up there and focuses, he starts cranking them. It teaches a great lesson in focus. The curveball is a 12-6 only, and is very effective at teaching them to track the movement. Balls have been proving to be consistent in their flight when being pitched, even in high wind. They are also soft enough for your player to catch with their bare hand to do some catching drills. After 3 weeks stuck at home, he finally was able to get to the ball park, and was crushing the ball. His exact quote was "the ball looked like a soccer ball coming in there"

    Cons: Really not many but you need to make sure you have a big enough place to use this. Unlike a wiffle ball pitching machine, these things will go a long way when hit well (150 feet). So if your yard is small, these balls are going to go freaking everywhere and you'll start to lose them. And because of the replacement cost for these balls, it's an important thing to consider. My yard is of medium size, and we've had to buy a replacement bucket already. Also, the only other con is that it's only a 12-6 curveball. I'm no mechanical engineer, but it seems if you could tilt the machine to the right or left a bit (instead of the only tilt option is forward and back), the curveball angle could change to more of a right to left or left to right option.

    We are ver happy with this product. My son, 7, has learned a ton from it. He can hit much better after just 4 days of using this machine. Learning to hit these small balls really help when they go to hit a normal size baseball.

    Jugs small ball pitching machine

    Bought this for my grandchildren to learn how to bat better. It works great. To teach catching fly balls I just tip it back and away they go, about 75 feet into the air and downfield.

    Wonderful pitching machine. It has different speeds for my softball players to use. Great with the quick stick. Good for hand-eye coordination.
