The Ultimate Pitcher's and Catcher’s Plate is an excellent training aid that emphasizes what the best coaches in the world teach their pitchers and catchers. It has always been said that baseball is a game of inches, and it is these inches around the plate that are so important.
The Ultimate Pitcher's and Catcher’s Plate is very simple to use. The orange edges are 5" wide on the top and 7" wide on the bottom front of the plate and are a visual target for the pitcher to see. The 5” orange edges and white part of the plate cover 2.5” of a traditional home plate and 2.5” off of a traditional home plate. The back part of the plate is to help position the catcher. The catcher is to center his or her body on the point of the white part of the plate giving the pitcher the ultimate target to throw to on either corner of the plate. This outstanding training tool is also perfect for fastpitch softball pitchers and catchers.

We were one of the first Collegiate Baseball Programs to use the Pitcher's Plate. It is a tremendous training tool. The visual aid it provides the pitchers and catchers reinforces what we are teaching them. I recommend the Pitcher's Plate to all coaches and parents at all levels of play, it is never too early to start creating great habits.

The Pitcher's Plates are a must for developing pitchers. We use them everyday in our bullpen sessions. The Plates give the pitchers an exact spot to focus on and the catchers an exact area where to set up. These plates are portable, great for using in our "short box" drills and when we travel.

In my 20 years as a college coach, never have I had a better instructional tool for pitchers and catchers. The Pitcher's Plate gives pitchers a clear idea of where (and where not) to pitch. Catchers can easily develop good habits in regards to setting-up for pitches by using this marvelous instructional aid. We use it daily, and I recommend it to everyone.
- Scott Whitlock, Head Softball Coach, Kennesaw State University
Our pitchers love the visual aid it gives them and our catchers feel it helps them set up and lets them see what pitches are close enough to be framed. I would highly recommend the pitcher's plate.
- John Rittman, Stanford University Head Softball Coach
Since I began using this plate, I have seen tremendous improvement in my pitchers' command of the strike zone and a better awareness from my catchers' as to where they are actually setting up to receive the pitch. The visuals for both players cannot be duplicated elsewhere.
