Best Pitching Machines of 2023

If you're looking to step up your hitting skills, a pitching machine is the best way to do so. The beauty of a pitching machine is that it allows you to improve your hitting skills on your own time, wherever you’d like.

The majority of pitching machines nowadays are portable, plug into any standard wall outlet, and are affordable. But, with the introduction of new technology and innovation, it has become increasingly difficult to determine which pitching machine is right for your age, skill level and budget.

Without further ado, let’s see what the best pitching machines of this season have to offer!

Best Baseball Pitching Machines

The most commonly used pitching machines are baseball pitching machines. Our customers ask us all the time, what are the best pitching machines for baseball? We ask them back, "what is your budget, and how old is the player that will be using it?" We carry pitching machines for all different ages, skill levels and budgets. 

Helping you or your kid improve their hitting skills and get to the next level is our top priority, and with these top 3 best pitching machines for baseball, it's never been easier. 

Best Three Wheel Pitching Machines

When it comes to wheels on a pitching machine, the more the merrier. In fact, the best pitching machines built are all three wheel pitching machines. With three wheels, a pitching machine can throw harder, more consistently and with a wider diversity of pitches, including right and left handed breaking balls, split fingers, fastballs and more! Let's take a look at the best 3 wheel pitching machines for this upcoming season! 

 Best 2 Wheel Pitching Machines

Just a step down in performance and price from 3 wheel pitching machines are 2 wheel pitching machines. Two wheel pitching machines have many of the same capabilities as their more expensive counterparts, but with less power and less break on the breaking pitches. 

This doesn't mean two wheel pitching machines aren't a good option. In fact, they're amongst the most popular pitching machines out there. Their compact size, strength and lower price point are attractive to players ages 10 and up, parents and coaches alike. Let's take a look at the best 2 wheel pitching machines on the market! 

Best 1 Wheel Pitching Machines

One wheel pitching machines are great for youth baseball player or anyone looking to step up their batting skills. One wheel pitching machines can generally only throw fastballs, and mild breaking pitches, as well as grounders, pop ups and line drives. Let's take a look at the best one wheel pitching machines of this season! 

Best Combination Pitching Machines

Need a pitching machine for baseball and softball? If you have a son in baseball and a daughter playing softball, or if you coach multiple leagues, you're going to need a combo pitching machine. The best combination pitching machines are the ones that can quickly switch from baseball to softball, throw hard and constantly. 

Best Programmable Pitching Machines

When budget isn't an issue, and losing isn't an option, baseball teams buy a programmable pitching machine. Programmable pitching machines are at the cutting edge of baseball technology, and have the most to offer any baseball player looking to drastically improve their batting average and performance at the plate. Let's take a look at the best programmable pitching machines! 

Best Pitching Machine for Catchers

Training your catcher for the next big game is no easy task. Finding someone to throw hard and consistently to them can be a difficult thing to pull off, which is why many coaches have started relying on pitching machines for this. 

The pitching machine that is a good fit for your catcher depends on their age and skill level. For young kids 5-10, they just need a machine to throw hard and straight. Something like the First Pitch Baseline, or the Deuce 75 baseball pitching machine will do. 

For players 12 and up, they will need something bigger and stronger. Around this age range, kids will start seeing breaking pitches like curveballs and sliders, so you'll want a machine that can keep up. Overall, we thing the Junior Hack Attack pitching machine is the best pitching for catchers of that age range. Although, for adult players you might want something even more powerful, like the Jugs BP3 machine

Best Home Pitching Machines

Every young player needs a backyard pitching machine. A pitching machine for home can really be the difference in striking out or hitting a dinger at their next at bat. They younger a kids starts learning how to hit, the more fun they will have playing baseball.

Our best backyard pitching pitching machines are from brands like Heater Sports and First Pitch pitching machines. These two brands create awesome pitching machines for home use, while keeping quality and budget top of mind. These pitching machines also pair well with and backyard batting cage as well. 

Our customers really like the Heater BaseHit and the Heater Real Baseball pitching machines as they both are budget friendly, consistent and portable. Our customers also love the First Pitch XL and the Baseline for their backyard cage setups. If you want a workhorse that you don't plan on moving around, check out our Iron Mike baseball pitching machines.
