All Steel Construction

The Baseline is built with an all-steel construction. The chute, tripod base, and legs are all made from steel. The motor casing is also built with a 1/8” steel casing, providing security to your pitching machine’s motor from line drives back towards the machine.

Comes Standard as Baseball/Softball Combo Machine

The First Pitch Baseline Pitching Machine throws baseballs, 11” softballs, and 12” softballs. The machine will come with one set of steel legs that are reversible. The machine will come with two different chutes. One chute is for baseball and the other chute is for softball.

Quick Transition between Baseball & Softball

There are two steps to transition your pitching machine from to baseball to softball or vice versa. The first step is reversing the legs. The legs have spring loaded buttons that make removing them and installing them on the Baseline take a matter of seconds. The second step is switching the chute. The whole process will only take a minute or two.

Throws Real Baseballs & Softballs

The First Pitch Baseline Pitching Machine will throw real leather baseballs, 11” softballs, and 12” softballs. The machine can also throw pitching machine balls, dimpled balls, and other practice balls.

Easy to Use Speed Dial

The Baseline has a speed dial that goes 0 through 7, representing 0 MPH to 70 MPH. You place the dial in between numbers to throw a pitch in the middle of the two speeds. For example, if you wanted to throw a 65 MPH pitch, you would place the dial between the six and seven. Make sure to flip the on/off switch to off when you are done with practice rather than setting the dial to 0.
