PD: 2 Pitch 3 PM
Baseball only. Can throw any type of pitch. Maximum speed exceeds 100mph.
2 Pitch 3 Pitching Machine
The 2 Pitch 3 can throw more types of pitches. Both the Fastball head and the Curveball head can be tilted 35-degrees left or right to simulate right handed or left handed pitching. The Fastball head now has two individual speed controllers. This allows you to set up the Fastball head to throw any type of pitch (similar to the BATA 2). Being able to alter the ratio of the two motor speeds allows you to throw many different types of fastballs (straight, sinking, tailing, etc.), as well as other pitches (slider, knuckleball).
WHAT DO I NEED?
For manual feeding, all you need is the machine itself, some BATA Dimpled Baseballs (optional), and a protective screen (optional).
For Auto Feeding, we recommend adding the BATA Auto Feeder, Remote On/Off, and at least two dozen BATA Dimpled Baseballs.
There are some limitations when Auto Feeding the 2 Pitch 3. Some combinations (of speed and distance will not work). If you are throwing slower from a certain distance than is realistic, the feed chutes will be out of alignment, and would not be able to accept the balls properly when auto feeding.
General rule of thumb, the minimum curveball speed (in mph) is about equal to the pitching distance (in feet).
For example, (when auto feeding) the minimum speed curveball from 45 feet pitching distance is about 45 mph. From 55 feet, the minimum curveball speed is about 55 mph. The fastball will normally be about 15-20% faster than the curveball.

With a package deal you must select a batting cage. Everything for the cage is included except the 10' poles needed for the frame, which you buy locally. The poles are 3/4" electrical conduit, steel galvanized pipe (EMT), and are readily available in stores such as Home Depot or Lowe’s. The trade name for these poles is “thin wall.” They are in the "electrical conduit" aisle. Below are the quantities of poles you need to buy:
40' cage requires 23 poles
50' cage requires 28 poles
60' cage requires 33 poles
