Welcome to ProBatter!
Vince Lombardi once said, “Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”
We here at ProBatter Sports have spent the last twenty years engineering and refining the ultimate professional training tool for hitters, The ProBatter Live Pitching Simulator. Effective hitting comes from strength, skill, and most importantly, the hitter’s sense of timing. Traditional pitching machines can help, but they fail to develop one of the most important element of hitting in a real game “The Eye Switch,” i.e., the moment when the hitter switches their focal point from a point on the pitchers hand to the ball itself. The “eye switch” is critical for the hitter’s ability to recognize different pitches and allow him or her to develop a sense of rhythm, timing, and balance. It permit the hitter to maintain sharp image of the ball as it comes toward them. Traditional pitching machines where the ball rolls down a chute or a coach manually feeds the ball into the machine, have been shown to actually hurt a hitters sense of timing, rather than help it.
The ProBatter Live Pitching Simulator was developed 20+ year ago to overcome the limitations of traditional pitching machines. It is a computerized, professional system that was the first-ever commercial pitching machine company to incorporate a 3-wheel pitching machine that throws any pitch, or sequence of pitches at speeds from 40 to 100 miles per hour with a high degree of accuracy that is repeatable, time-after-time. The original ProBatter system was so revolutionary, it resulted in the issuance of 13 U.S. patents, multiple international patents, and was the subject of more than 70 television features and at least 50 newspaper and magazine articles. By combining this machine with a video projection system that displays a video image of an actual pitcher throwing the same type of pitch that is being delivered by the machine through a hole in the screen, ProBatter has achieved the “Ultimate Pitching Machine” which allows hitters to work on their timing and rhythm while facing virtually every type of pitch that they will face in a real game.

THE PERFECT PITCHER
I cannot conceive of a better way to prepare my players for competition in a game. We sincerely believe that with ProBatter we have a real advantage over the competition.
Installing the ProBatter products was a great decision. They’re generating three times the revenue of my other machines.
The ProBatter PX2 Video Simulator has been a valuable tool for our hitters. Seeing different pitches at varying speeds will prepare them well for live action.
It’s a great machine because it throws all kinds of pitches at all kinds of speeds.
I hit off it all the time. Not all the time when you’re home can you find guys who can throw BP all the time. I can go and I can turn the machine on and do it anytime I want for as long as I want. It’s not going to get tired. Its arm is not going to blow out.
I have it in my hitting cages in Vegas…(Brain) Cashman called to ask me about it and I said it was great. It gives you a look at everything and at every speed.
