Iron Mike™ Pitching Machines
Hitting is all about timing. You must have the proper timing to know when to start your swing and when to shift your weight. This is achieved by watching the pitcher's arm and release of the ball. An arm-style pitching machine is the only type of pitching machine that gives you that same sense of timing. With each pitch you see the machine's arm wind up and release the ball. It is the realistic nature of the machine that allows you to practice the same fundamentals in the batting cages as you use on the field. Because of this, the Iron Mike arm-style pitching machines from Master Pitching Machine are the favorite machines of professional players and coaches worldwide.
The Iron Mike machines have a speed range of 25 to 85 MPH. Each cage has markings for the appropriate plate placement so all hitters can practice at the same distance they play at. In Addition, each cage is 65’ long, allowing our high school and adult hitter to hit at the full 60’, 6” distance.
