Discount BATA B1-Curveball Pitching Machine
Proudly made in the USA, the BATA B1 Curveball Pitching Machine stands out as one of most high-performing machines year after year. Pitch baseballs, softballs or both with stellar accuracy and easy, intuitive operation. This could be exactly the pitching machine for yourself or your team, and better yet, the price is fantastic for its capability.
There are a few key factors which make the B1 and other BATA machines so accurate. With a sturdy, balanced frame and some precision engineering, you can count on landing pitches right in the strike zone time after time. The wheels are hard rubber, which hold their position and don't distort at high speeds or in more extreme outdoor temperatures. You have well-measured control over how much pressure there is between the wheel and the pinch point, ensuring you can get the ideal pitch for any size of ball. Once set, you'll rarely ever have to set this gap again, so you can focus on practice.
BATA is one of the most longstanding manufacturers of pitching machines, and of course, these machines are from the United States. The B1 Curveball Pitching Machine is elegant but powerfully constructed. The core material is aluminum, while the legs and motor frame are solid steel. This is a pitching machine that's painstakingly built to last through the years, use after use. Like all pitching wheels, the B1's wheels need some amount of maintenance, but they will hold up well. The rubber hardness is 46-54A Rockwell and better yet it won't mark the practice balls. For even more peace of mind, there is also a solid 5-year warranty from BATA, included when you purchase from us.
You can assemble the BATA B1 Curveball Pitching Machine the very same day you take it out of the box. All you need to do is follow the straightforward instructions and use some simple hand tools. Adjusting the speed is as easy as the turn of a dial. To achieve different pitches, including fastballs, sliders and curves, you only need to tilt the head to the left or right. Switching from baseball to softball or vice versa should only take a couple minutes once you know how to do it. You primarily need to change the legs so set the release to the appropriate height and then adjust the gap to fit the ball. When you're done, you can simply roll the BATA B1 off the field with the transport kit (sold separately).
