Bring The Batting Cage Home With Sling Pitcher
Many players sharpen up their baseball skills in a batting cage. Aspiring batters have to deal with the hassle of locating and commuting to parks where cages can be found and paid for. For some, the commute is well worth it. Pitching machines throw a relatively consistent pitch down the strike plate but also account for the variation found naturally in play. Different speeds and styles can be configured on the machines to train the batter for different on-field scenarios. A regular commute to the batting cage along with the cost of equipment rental and usage fees can add up quickly. Some practicing batters have brought the superior training capacity of the pitching machine into their own yards.
