The THREE WHEEL ADVANTAGE
Basics. Batting practice just got easier. Simply push a button to choose the type of pitch you want. The TriplePlay Pro pitching machine can automatically throw FASTBALLS, SINKERS, CURVES and SLIDERS. The pitch speed is adjustable from 40 to 90 MPH in 5 MPH increments, and is digitally displayed. Use TriplePlay Pro in the batting cage for batting practice, or on the field for both batting and fielding practice. TriplePlay Pro’s versatility allows your fielders to practice both groundballs and flyballs. TriplePlay Pro is also simple to transport. Just set it down and use the four transport wheels to push it across the field.
Visibility. The baseball is visible from the time it leaves the feeder’s hand until it is pitched, unlike two-wheel pitching machines in which the ball is hidden by the throwing wheels before being pitched. This allows the hitter to more naturally time the pitches.
Accuracy. TriplePlay Pro’s three-wheel pitching mechanism is more accurate than two wheels because more gripping surface is put on the ball.
Time. The three-wheel design requires significantly less movement of the throwing mechanism to produce different pitches than does a two-wheel machine, so changing pitches takes less time.
Versatile and Easy to Transport. TriplePlay Basic moves easily to the field for batting and fielding practice – both groundballs and flyballs. Just lay it down and use the built-in transport wheels to push it across the field.
