Baseball Pitching Machines

Baseball pitching machines have been used for over 50 years to help train young and old baseball players. Little leaguers to professional players use pitching machines to work on their ability at the plate.  What pitching machines are the best? Well, the answer to that question is really based on the needs of the player. Below we list the top baseball pitching machine options for each age group.

What Baseball Pitching Machine is the Best for Each Age Group?

5-8 Years Old

Young baseball players are most focused on improving their hand-eye coordination, their timing on swinging, and mechanics. For this age group, you need a machine that you can dial down to low speeds and throws baseballs accurately.

We recommend four pitching machines for the 5-8 year old age range including the Heater Jr., First Pitch Relief Pitcher, the Heater Real, and the Heater BaseHit Pitching Machine. All these pitching machines will throw consistent strikes and will allow the hitter to focus on improving in the areas they need work.

The BaseHit Pitching Machine provides a cheap option that is perfect for use in the backyard. Same goes for the Heater Jr. and Relief Pitcher. The Heater Real Pitching Machine is slightly more expensive. We recommend the Heater Real is a high-end pitching machine for this age group that you can grow into over time.

8-12 Years Old

As the kids start to get older you need more advanced pitching machines. Ones that throw a little bit harder and maybe even as they approach middle school, a pitching machine that throws breaking pitches. This age group is tough to buy for as there are a lot of different options.

One of the top options is the First Pitch Baseline. The Baseline Pitching Machine throws up to 70 MPH so it has a lot of extra speed compared to most of the less expensive models. Another top option is the JUGS MVP. The JUGS MVP has been a staple in JUGS line of pitching machines for many years. Both these machines are the go-to options for little leagues.

If you need a machine that your kid will grow into then the Spinball 2 Wheel Pitching Machine is a great option. The machine throws all types of breaking pitches and up to 100 MPH. If you are looking to save some money, the Heater Deuce 2 Wheel is a cheaper alternative to the Spinball Machine. It does not come with same warranty and lack some of the features, but it throws up to 75 MPH and throws curveballs, sliders, and more.

13+ Years Old

When you get to the high school level, you want to find a pitching machine that throws at top speeds and throws breaking pitches. If you search through our website you will see that many of the two and three wheel options offer both.

Many of the two-wheel pitching machines are more affordable. Top two-wheel options include the BATA 2 Pitching Machine and the JUGS BP2 Pitching Machine.

Three-wheel pitching machines have their set of advantages over two-wheel pitching machines, but you will pay for them. If you are looking for a do-it all three-wheel machine, check out the ATEC M3X Pitching Machine. The key is finding a pitching machine that has the features you need to succeed, while at price you or your team can afford.
