Don't take our word for it:
I have been coaching and/or managing Little League Baseball teams... for the past four years. After using this machine every single day for the past week I can tell you that this is the single most helpful baseball training aid that I have ever used... I can pitch an entire bucket of 65 or more baseballs to each of my team members on a single charge. - Bob A. (coach and parent of 11 year old, Virginia)
We coach two different age groups... 10-12 year olds... and 14-16 year olds... We have used the machine almost on a daily basis between the two teams and having a machine that weighs less than 30 lbs makes it very easy to get from one practice field to another. The battery life is amazing... One of my first year ball players who had struggled at the beginning of the season even catching a fly ball made a catch of a fly ball look simple in his first game.....You have made the job of coaching youth baseball easier and more rewarding for me and my players. - Dan K. (coach of 10-16 year-olds)
I am coaching a minor league team who are 6 and 7 year old players and the machine is working perfectly for their age group and will definitely grow with them. Thank you Zooka Sports. - Keith C. (coach of 6-7 year olds)
Wow, what a great machine! I am really pleased with it... The fact that it charges up and can be taken anywhere is the best feature of all. I really love the machine.- Dave G. (parent of two sons)
These things are GREAT!! Every time we take them out on location with us they end up being the talk of the day... I couldn't ask for anything better. Great accuracy, consistency and overall design!- Jerry G. (baseball bat manufacturer)
Just got my machine last week, charged up the battery, and the next day my sons and their friends were hitting perfect pitches every time. This is a fantastic machine... Just set up and go. - Craig B. (parent)
I have been using your product with the Marysville instructional league and have nothing but praise for its performance... You advertise as being capable of 500 pitches per charge... I suggest you add "or about 4 little (league) games in a row! " - Cary K. (coach of youth league)
Opening day was terrific. Your guys had two machines going... one for a hitting contest and the other for a fielding contest. There is no doubt in my mind that you have a winner. No doubt. None.- Chuck O. (parent)
I wanted you to know how much my son and his team love your pitching machine. Since his team has started using your machine, their record is 3-1-1. A huge improvement from a 1-5 start. Thanks so much...- Danny C. (parent of 11 year old)
I'm sure that you are very busy keeping up with orders for such a great machine!- John C. (parent)

Frequently Asked Questions:
How does the pitching machine work?
