Personal Pitcher PRO Model
The PRO Model includes the ability to throw right and left handed curve balls or sliders in addition to fastballs. The PRO Model also comes equipped with the Pitch Isolation Training (PIT) system. PIT allows a batter to isolate a specific pitch (such as inside fastballs, outside curveballs or low sliders) by repeatedly throwing accurate pitches to the same spot. By focusing on one type of pitch, the batter can concentrate on the necessary mechanics to be successful with that particular pitch.
If you don't own a standard camera tripod, add this suggested stand to your order for proper positioning.
GROBAT is a training bat to use w/ the Personal Pitcher. Improves hand-eye coordination & power. GROBAT "grows" with you, w/ adjustable length & weight.

How fast does it throw?
The fastball mode is about 55 MPH, but the distance the batter stands
from the machine determines the “effective” speed. From 20 feet the
speed is equivalent to a 95+ mph pitch from 60 feet. From 25-30 feet the
speed is equivalent to a high school coach throwing batting practice.
The batter can move closer as his skills improve, or lower the speed if
confined to a smaller area.
How can Pitch Isolation Training help a batter?
PIT allows a batter to isolate a specific pitch that is causing
problems—no matter if it's a right hand or left hand curveball, or a
high fastball. PIT can provide accurate repeat pitches in the zone until
a batter can hit this pitch with Power and Confidence!
How accurate is it?
Indoors, every pitch is in the strike zone. Wind can affect the accuracy when being used outdoors.
What does my warranty include?
Warranty includes all parts and labor for 1 year. Most mechanical
problems can be fixed over the phone, and the manufacturer will provide
replacement parts at no charge. Or, you can return the unit and the
manufacturer will repair it and return it to you.
Is this machine advanced enough for a Varsity High School Player?
Absolutely! Players at all levels, including Major Leaguers, use the
Personal Pitcher to maintain their swing. Even Pro Player Chris Richard
still uses it to keep his swing in the off season!
How far do the balls travel after being hit?
It depends on the level of the hitter. The best hitters will be able
to hit it about 90-100ft. Most hitters will hit them 40-60 ft.
What kind of balls do you use? How long will they last? Can I use the golf ball sized balls that I already have?
We provide 24 or 48 balls with your purchase. They are the best
quality and should last well over 1 year. Most golf ball sized poly
balls will work (however some might not work).
How do I recharge the battery? How long does it take to charge? Can I overcharge it?
Simply plug the machine into the wall with the battery properly
installed and it will recharge itself. It takes about 1 hour for each
hour of use. After about 4-5hrs of charging the battery, unplug it from
the wall. It should not lose capacity for many years.
How heavy is the Personal Pitcher?
A fully loaded box (w/ 4 dozen balls, tripod and battery) weighs approx. 9 lbs.
Can I use my own tripod?
Yes, the Personal Pitcher will mount on any standard tripod.
