Unique-Perspective: Heater BaseHit

Unique-Perspective: Heater BaseHit
The Heater BaseHit by Trend Sports is truly a “starter” pitching machine. At $199 you won’t find another pitching machine that throws real baseballs for less. The Heater BaseHit will only throw at a max speed of 45 MPH and this is from a distance of 46 feet. From this distance, it is equivalent to approximately 60 MPH from regulation distance. This machine is geared for a much younger player (under 12 years of age realistically) and kids this age will throw at distances closer than regulation. ...

ATEC Rookie: Defensive Drills

ATEC Rookie: Defensive Drills
The ATEC line of pitching machines is not for everyone. Known as the “Official pitching machine of Major League Baseball” it truly is an advanced machine. ATEC in my opinion has an “advanced machine” price tag on it as well. However, with that price tag you are getting a lot of machine. ATEC machines come with highly advanced technology and offer many features that can take your ball player or team to the next level. I have never used the ATEC Rookie Pitching Machine personally, however recently witnessed a practice where one was being used and have to admit I was very impressed. First off, it is lightweight at 56 pounds and was being moved around the field multiple times during the practice with ease.  It was moved from home plate, to the edge of the outfield grass, and then finally to the batting cage that sits right off the field.  Although I did not help move it myself, it did look easy from where I was sitting. I would definitely...

Unique Perspective: Muhl Power Balls

Unique Perspective: Muhl Power Balls
A product that is being used by some of the top hitting instructors as part of their training lessons is the Muhl Tech Power Balls. These heavy weight training balls are designed to help develop power hitting. They are rubber coated foam balls that are 20 inches in diameter that weigh 1 pound each. Designed to build strength in the forearms and wrists the Muhl Tech Power Balls have proven to increase "ball exit speed" and encourages hitters to enforce strong hip rotation, a major key to hitting with power and authority. The balls absorb impact without recoil and force hitters to be more precise with contact, which is also a key in developing power in hitting. ...

Unique Perspective: Pocket Radar

Unique Perspective: Pocket Radar
Unless you throw a 100 MPH fastball, changing speeds as a pitcher is critical. It is amazing how many major league pitchers now throw over 96 MPH, but that is not the point of this article! Hitting is all about balance and pitching is all about unbalancing a hitter. The best way to unbalance a hitter is to change speeds. You can make your 80 MPH high school fastball look 85 MPH if you effectively change speeds. When you unbalance a hitter you will get a lot of swing and misses over the top of the ball and a lot of rolling their wrists, which usually means weak ground balls. Now changing speeds as a pitcher seems like an easy concept, but it is a very difficult skill to master. Repetition is the key to success in developing a good changeup. ...

Baseball Equipment Storage

Baseball Equipment Storage
So you’ve invested a fair amount of time and money in choosing and purchasing your baseball equipment, but now it’s nearing the end of the season. How do you store your sporting equipment when it’s not in use so when you go to use it next season it’s still in great shape and easily usable?Caring for your baseball equipment in the off-season can actually make an impact on how it performs when you need it. Don’t reverse any care and customizing you’ve done for your baseball equipment by discarding them without thought during winter months. Baseball BatsMost baseball bats have weather restrictions in order to maintain their integrity. Using a baseball bat in weather cooler than 60 degrees Fahrenheit can end up being very harmful to a bat. The lower temperatures cause the density of a bat to change, thereby causing the bat’s make-up to become more brittle and more prone to cracks and dents. Lower temperatures can also cause baseballs and softballs to become harder, which could also...
