Versatile pitch height and speed

This pitching machine is very easy to set up and use. The speed control consists of 10 different levels. Typically, a 9-year-old kid will probably be comfortable enough with level 5. Younger kids can use much lower levels and older kids much higher.

This pitching machine can also be used for infield and outfield training. The pitch height can also be adjusted depending on what throw one wants the machine to do. It can be used for many purposes. It can throw fly balls, grounders and is good for batting practice.

Automatic ball feeder

This machine can throw 11 and 12-inch baseballs, softballs, whiffle balls, and dimple balls. The automatic ball feeder comes with the whole package. It can hold either 12 baseballs or 9 softballs. It depends on the size of the balls. It automatically feeds the machine one ball every 12 seconds.

Due to the convenience that an automatic ball feeder offers, one can even practice alone. It is very easy to setup. Even kids can learn how to adjust the speed of the machine. Thus, eventually, they can train by themselves.

This pitching machine is rather inexpensive for a “real ball machine.” It is very durable since it is built with a solid steel housing. This explains why it is a bit heavier than the other pitching machines.

Bottom line

The Heater Combo Pitching Machine is a “real ball machine” that is affordable, convenient, accurate, versatile and durable. It comes with an auto feeder. The speed and height of throws can easily be adjusted for catching or batting practice.
