HomePlate Premier Pitching Machine
HomePlate Premier Hand Feed Pitching Machine $5399
The HomePlate Premier is now the “hand feed” version of the HomePlate Ultimate pitching machine. The Premier machine can automatically throw straight fastballs, change-ups, sliders, sinkers, curves, splitters and knuckleballs. Any Pitch in Any Order. The pitch speed is adjustable from 40 to 90 mph and uses the same control as the HomePlate to throw a variety of pitches automatically. Everything is automatic with the Premier by just pushing the control to get the pitch and location desired. And the control remembers exactly the pitch or pitches that are “stored” in the control. The HomePlate Premier is almost like the HomePlate only without the automatic feeder.
Like the HomePlate Ultimate, the HomePlate Premier uses a three-wheel pitching mechanism that is more accurate than two wheels because it puts more gripping surface on the ball which allows for greater accuracy and consistency.
The baseball is visible from the time it leaves the hand of the feeder until it gets to the batter. The HomePlate Premier does not have an autofeed case like the HomePlate Ultimate and uses the unique HomePlate frame and wheels to clearly see the ball from feeder to batter.
The three-wheel pitching mechanism is more accurate than two wheels because there is more gripping surface.
The three-wheel design requires significantly less movement of the throwing mechanism to produce different pitches than does a two-wheel machine. It only takes a couple of seconds to change from one type pitch to another. Push button controls for height and direction quickly fine-tune pitch location, so the time it takes changing pitches is fast and easy.
Versatility and Transport
Use the HomePlate Premier in the batting cage for batting practice or on the field for both batting and fielding practice. Its versatility allows fielders to practice both groundballs and fly balls. Simple to move around…… just set it down and use the transport wheels to push it across the field.
The Premier can pitch all types of regulation and dimple baseballs. (low seam baseballs are best)
