Pitching Machine Breakdown:
- 1 Iron Mike Baseball Pitching Machine: This machine throws real game quality baseballs. This machine is fully automated and starts pitching at the press of a button. This is the perfect machine if you want to come in and hit by yourself, or with some friends. Iron Mike pitches for 3-4 minutes per cycle, so at the end of each cycle you can swap with a friend or press the button and start hitting again. This machine is set to a speed of approximately 60-65mph (95-105kmph) meaning it is most suited to Senior players, U/18, U/16 and Elite U/14 & U/12 players. If you would like a machine that has an adjustable speed we recommend using the JUGS machines. Use of Iron Mike costs $25 per half hour during regular trading hours
- 2 Dual Wheel JUGS Baseball machines: These machines are perfect for junior players & all players new to baseball. These machines are fully adjustable so you can hit balls at speeds from 25-80mph (40-130kmph). These machines do not use real baseballs and instead use X-Plate High Performance Dimple Baseballs. This machine requires at least 2 people to use (one person to hit & the other person to operate the machine and feed the balls). If you are unsure of your skill level we recommend you use this machine over the Iron Mike. Use of the JUGS Baseball machines cost $15 per half hour during regular trading hours
- 2 Single Wheel JUGS Softball machines: These machines are perfect for Softball players young & old. These machines are fully adjustable so you can hit balls at speeds from 15-70mph (25-115kmph). These machines do not use real softballs and instead use X-Plate High Performance Dimple Softballs. This machine requires at least 2 people to use (one person to hit & the other person to operate the machine and feed the balls). Use of the JUGS Softball machines cost $15 per half hour during regular trading hours
