Training & Drills

Training/Practice Drills

The Sling Pitcher is the most complete and effective pitching and training machine on the market today, at ANY price. The following drills are commonly used by youth coaches at all levels. Some of these drills require only the standard Sling Pitcher, while others will use the Sling Guard or the Sling Turret.

Hitting Drills Using Light Weight Balls:

Foam, plastic, and tennis balls can be used on a field, in a batting cage, or in a gym during inclement weather. Multiple stations can be set up in a gym or on the field using perforated plastic balls, without fear of injury to players or facilities.

Hitting Drills Using Regulation Balls:

Regulation balls can be used with the Sling Guard, either on the open field or in a batting cage. It is highly recommended that the Sling Guard be used any time regulation balls are pitched, especially to stronger hitters. It is also recommended that the operator, as well as the hitters use batting helmets. This is more critical for operators in a batting cage, since balls can come of the top of the net and strike an operator behind the Guard.
