TriplePlay Basic Pitching Machine

TriplePlay Basic Pitching Machine $1899

The Basic TriplePlay is the compact version of the original TriplePlay Pro Pitching Machine. This machine will throw all the pitches very accurately up to 80mph. Simply adjust the 3 dials on the TriplePlay Basic and any type of pitch desired is yours. The TriplePlay Basic can throw straight fastballs, sliders, sinkers, curves, splitters, change-ups and knuckleballs. The pitch speed is adjustable from 30 to 80 mph and is so easy to use. A little different than the original TriplePlay pitching machine, the Basic can use either a standard outlet or an optional 12v battery pack. No electrical outlet is needed with the Basic TriplePlay pitching machine when you use the special battery pack. It s the only 3 wheel machine with a battery pack option and it can throw any type of pitch desired. The Basic TriplePlay pitching machine is a tremendous value at this price.


Like the original TriplePlay Pro pitching machines, the Basic 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. This is unlike two-wheel pitching machines in which the ball is hidden by the throwing wheels before being pitched.


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. Oversized knobs for height and direction control help quickly fine-tune pitch location, so the time it takes changing pitches is fast and easy.

Versatility and Transport

Use the TriplePlay Basic 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 Basic can pitch all types of regulation and dimple baseballs. (low seam baseballs are best)
