Size Guide

The Designated Hitter (DH) is a life-like, heavy-duty polyethylene silhouette figure of a batter who stands in at the plate in place of a real batter. This adds a critical element of reality to pitching practice. Rather than simply throwing to a catcher behind a plate, the pitcher now is practicing in a more game-like setting. Pitchers can throw at game-level intensity in practice without having to worry about injuring a teammate.

What coaches and pitching instructors are saying...

DH Pitching Target"The DH looks just like a real hitter and we use it in all of our pens. Our pitchers have really enjoyed throwing to it. They can come inside with an aggressive pitch and blow it up. If they hit the DH, nobody cares. That is the type of aggressivenes and mentality that I work very hard at developing in our pitchers. Every bullpen in America should have one."
- Scott Jackson, UNC Wilmington Pitching Coach

"The DH is the best product of its kind on the market…realistic, sturdy, easy to move, and in one piece."
- Geoff Zahn, former Major League Pitcher

"The DH has been a tremendous addition to our program. It has allowed our pitchers to simulate game situations in the bullpen, improved the quality of our side work and, specifically, our ability to locate fastballs on the inner half of the plate. I wholeheartedly recommend this product."- Jim Schlossnagle, Head Coach, TCU

"The DH lives in our bullpen and I won't let a pitcher throw without him standing in. Our pitchers are now having more success throwing strikes to the inner half and are developing the confidence to pitch in and win."
- Eric Degre, Head Coach, North County Union High School

"The DH displays all of the hitter's key landmarks, giving pitchers a complete image of the strike zone. This helps pitchers develop more consistency in the accuracy and trajectory of their pitches."
- Jim Haller, First round draft pick (1970), Los Angeles Dodgers

"The DH is a great alternative for live hitters. It allows our pitchers to visualize throwing to spots, and build confidence to throw the ball inside."- David Pierce, Pitching Coach, Rice University
