Pitching Machines for Commercial Use
If you're starting up your own batting cage business, you're going to need a commercial pitching machine. Not all pitching machines for baseball are rated for commercial use, so it is important to purchase one that can withstand hours upon hours of use every day for years.
Our most popular commercial pitching machines are the Iron Mike pitching machines. The Iron Mike pitching machines are arm-style pitching pitching machines. This means that the pitching machine has an arm, rather than wheels, that catapults the ball into the strike zone.
The Iron Mikes make for great commercial pitching machines due to their engineering and pitch delivery style. They are heavy-duty machines built with steel, so they are not easily damaged and don't break down easily. These machines have been used in batting cages around the country for decades now.
As for the pitching style, the arm on the machine allows the batter to see the ball in the pitching machine arm as it is being delivered, much like with a live pitcher. This helps with timing and swing.
We also selected 3 other 3-wheel pitching machines in our collection of pitching machines for batting cage businesses: the Hack Attack 3 wheel pitching machine, the Spinball Wizard 3 wheel machine, and the Rawlings Pro Line 3.
We selected these pitching machines because they are workhorses and can pitch all kinds of pitches, like fastballs, breaking balls, and more, at speeds up to 100 mph. These machines will work great in a batting cage but cannot hold as many balls as the Iron Mike commercial pitching machines.
