THE BACKYARD BATTING CAGE MACHINE
Batting Tutor was designed with the backyard batting cage owner in mind. It’s simple one-wheel design can automatically pitch fastballs every 10 seconds at speeds ranging from 30 to 60 MPH to quickly develop the hitting skills of youth league players.
EASY TO OPERATE
Just load the hopper with up to 140 baseballs, push the ON button, select your speed using the digital control, and push the AUTO button. You can also control pitch timing manually using the SINGLE PITCH feature, which is useful for giving batting tips between pitches. Pitch height is adjusted by turning the large knob at the back of the machine.
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
70′ cage requires 38 poles.
