Bata Baseball Pitching Machines

By Eugene Rischall

Bata baseball pitching machines have steadily become recognized as the best in the world. Used by San Diego Padres, Arizona Diamondbacks, Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Seattle Mariners.

There are five important factors to consider when evaluating a baseball pitching machine.

1. The type of construction.
Bata machines are made of solid steel. There are no sand-castings or plastic on the frames or stand.
2. The motor and electronics.
Bata uses only high-quality US made permanent magnet motors and solid state electronic control.
3. The wheels.
As explained below, Bata uses the most effective design.
4. Ease of use.
Bata machines are simple to set up, easy to adjust, easy to transport.
5. Capacity.
Machines are suited for players of all levels.

Bata baseball pitching machines are the only machines that use Unique Goodyear Rubber Soft Trend pitching wheels. The soft tread wheels are solid, die cast, flat faced rubber treads, molded and vulcanized onto a machined aluminum core. The result is better accuracy, more speed, and better consistency. The wheels start out with a concise consistent shape, they maintain their shape regardless of the speed, and they are precision balanced to within 1 gram per foot. This makes Bata wheels run smooth and true.

Bata has various types of baseball pitching machines. The Bata 2Pitch3 is capable of throwing up to 95 mph fastball and a 75 mph curveball in one set up. Batting off this machine is like batting off a pro pitcher. When used with the Toggle Pitch Selector, the batter cannot predict which pitch is coming. He can only react to the pitch, as he would against a real pitcher. The Bata 2 Pitch Sidewinder is similar to the 2Pitch3 except that the maximum speed on the Sidewinder is 70 mph on both pitches, and the Sidewinder can pitch left or right handed. The Bata Twin Pitch can also throw two different pitches in one set up. A fastball or change up, or two fastballs to different locations. Ideal for softball. The Bata Starter throws fastballs up to 50 mph. Ideal for machine-pitch leagues and all players up to 12 years of age. The Bata B1-Curveball is the ideal in between baseball pitching machine. It is capable of throwing fastballs, curves, and sliders. The Bata 2 baseball pitching machine has three independent pivot locks. This allows you to adjust one axis without disturbing the others. The Bata 2 baseball pitching machine has built-in transport wheels, so you do not have to roll it on the pitching wheels.

In conclusion, Bata gives you more for your money. See you in the big leagues.
