Louisville Slugger UPM 45 Blue Flame Pitching Machine

Named the official Pony Baseball and Softball League pitching machine, the Ultimate Pitching Machine (UPM) 45 helps batters and coaches enjoy a more successful batting practice or coach-pitch game. It's sturdy, portable, and requires no electricity, which makes it great for practices and games, home or away. Plus it saves the coach's arm. Because the lever action flicks baseballs with consistent speed and location, it's often used as an alternative in coach-pitch leagues to help overcome the fear factor of live pitching. Young hitters will know where and when the ball will be pitched. For all ages, the UPM model 45 allows hitters to work on specific locations and sharpen muscle memory without turning the coach's arm to jelly.

        Comments about UPM 45 Blue Flame Pitching Machine:

        I was a little skeptical, but this machine works great. After getting it dialed in (took about 2 to 3 minutes) It throws strikes! We counted and it throws about 10 out of 12 strikes. The other two were typically a little high. Much better than I can do by hand. My only complaint is a little expensive for 15 pounds of steel, but it works great!
