Slow Pitch Pitching Machines for Softball

Softball Slow Pitch Machines

Practice your softball hitting skills with a slow pitch pitching machine. Not all pitching machines are designed for slow pitch softball, so it is important to know which machines are best for slow pitch. 

For slow pitch, it's necessary to find a machine that has the ability to slow the pitch down to speeds appropriate for your league, and to try to get an appropriate amount of arc on the pitch. 

Not all softball pitching machines offer the same speeds and arc, so you should first understand what you need for your league. We carry all different types of slow pitch machines with different price points, speed levels, and arc.

Slow Pitch Arc

Every slow pitch league has different regulations on the arc that the softball must be pitched at. Depending on the league, the necessary arc could be anywhere from 6 - 12'. Be sure to check with your league's rule book to find out what arc height is regulation for your league, so when you purchase a slow pitch machine, you purchase the right one. 

Slow Pitch Machine Speeds

The preferred pitch speed is completely up to you. If you know you will be facing pitcher's that pitch at speeds of 25 mph, you'll want a machine that can slow it down to 25 mph. Actually, most pitching machines are designed to pitch must faster than this and some of these machines can't slow it down to speeds that you may see in your slow pitch league. Because of this, it is important to find a machine that will pitch balls at your desired speeds. We carry machines that pitch at a wide array of speeds, so you won't have a problem finding the right machine.
