High Tech Pitching Machine

HomePlate Pitching Machine Used At Elite Baseball

Standard pitching machines typically train players to hit the same type of pitch over and over. While that can be helpful if a player has a specific weakness, it doesn’t help kids recognize the type of pitches to swing at, and it definitely doesn’t replicate game scenarios, which require players to quickly adapt to a variety of pitches.

Elite Baseball is home to the incredible pitching machine technology that addresses these issues: Our HomePlate pitching machine uses a patented three-wheel pitching mechanism that can simulate almost any pitcher. It can throw a 90 MPH fastball, followed by a 75 MPH curve, followed by a change-up, followed by a slider — and it can do it all automatically with only seven seconds between pitches.

When you use the HomePlate pitching machine at Elite Baseball, unlike those arm-machines or coin-machines, you will hit real leather baseballs and softballs to complete the authentic experience – AND – save your bat investment by hitting real leather balls.

More about our HomePlate Pitching Machine:

Complete Control

The HomePlate machine can throw pitches in sequential or random order, or you can practice repeatedly against any individual pitch. You can also control pitch timing manually using the SINGLE PITCH feature, which is useful when a coach wants more time between pitches for instruction.

Pitch Discrimination

With a regular pitching machine, hitters swing at every pitch, and therefore don’t practice the highest level hitting skill of Pitch Discrimination. The HomePlate allows you to program a mixture of balls and strikes, as well as different types of pitches. Hitters then need to make the “swing/don’t swing” decision on every pitch, just like in a real game.

Game Simulation

Put that scouting report on your next opposing pitcher to real use by programming his/her pitches into the HomePlate machine. Then select RANDOM pitch order to simulate that pitcher for a game-like practice.

A Whole New Ballgame

The HomePlate machine uses a patented three-wheel pitching mechanism that is more accurate than two wheels because it puts more gripping surface on the ball. It also features an innovative sound and light system designed to help batters time the pitches, as well as enhance safety.

With the HomePlate machine the hitting drills you design are limited only by your imagination, not your equipment. It’s like having an incredibly accurate professional batting practice pitcher that never gets tired.
