Sports Tutor HomePlate Pitching Machine (Baseball) (Model #sthpbb)

The HomePlate machine can simulate almost any pitcher you are likely to face.  The Baseball model can throw a 90 MPH fastball, followed by a 75 MPH curve, followed by a change-up, followed by a slider. Or any other combination of pitches you select. And it can do it all automatically with only seven seconds between pitches.

Complete Control- The HomePlate machine can throw pitches in sequential or random order, or you can practice repeatedly against any individual pitch. You can also control pitch timing manually using the SINGLE PITCH feature, which is useful when a coach wants more time between pitches for instruction.

Pitch Discrimination- With a regular pitching machine hitters swing at every pitch, and therefore don’t practice the highest level hitting skill of Pitch Discrimination. The HomePlate allows you to program a mixture of balls and strikes, as well as different types of pitches. Hitters then need to make the “swing/don’t swing” decision on every pitch just like in a real game.

Game Simulation- Put that scouting report on your next opposing pitcher to real use by programming his/her pitches into the HomePlate machine. Then select RANDOM pitch order to simulate that pitcher for a game-like practice.

Simple Programming- Programming HomePlate requires only three simple steps and typically takes less than 30 seconds per pitch. You can store up to eight different pitches in each of eight different programs (up to 64 total pitches). And you only need to program your pitches one time because HomePlate remembers your pitches even after you turn it off.

A WHOLE NEW BALL GAME

The HomePlate machine uses a patented three-wheel pitching mechanism that is more accurate than two wheels because it puts more gripping surface on the ball. It also features an innovative sound and light system designed to help batters time the pitches, as well as enhance safety.

With the HomePlate machine the hitting drills you design are limited only by your imagination, not your equipment. It’s like having an incredibly accurate professional batting practice pitcher that never gets tired.

HomePlate Control Center- The HomePlate Control Center allows a user to control all the features of the HomePlate machine on a convenient control panel that can be placed near the batter’s end of the cage. For commercial use where the facility operator only wants the user to have limited control, a mechanical lockout allows the user to change only the program, pitch order, and ball feed functions.

Remote Control- An optional hand-held wired remote control lets you start and stop automatic pitching, or throw one pitch at a time.

Warranty: HomePlate is backed by a one year warranty covering both parts and labor.  Extended warranties available.
