Why Should I Buy A Zooka Pitching Machine?

Zooka pitching machines are designed with the youth player in mind. Fully portable and adjustable, you can take them from the backyard to the ballpark in a matter of minutes. They are great machines if used in the proper situation, and with that in mind, we will try to help you decide if the Zooka Pitching Machine is right for you.

As mentioned above, the Zooka Pitching Machine is built for youths. It can reach top speeds of 70 MPH and has a safety-first mentality as it is entirely encased and has no exposed parts. In addition, it has an internal battery that can throw up to 500 pitches, so you do not need a generator or need to run a cord to an outlet to plug it in. The Zooka Pitching Machine also has a series of beeps and flashing lights that lets the player know the pitch is coming, which will help the youth player with their timing. These factors make the Zooka an ideal machine for a pitching machine league.

The Zooka is lightweight and very portable weighing in at less than 30 pounds. It is easy to transport from the back yard to the ball field and can be set up in less than a minute. Other comparable pitching machines can weigh over 60 pounds and can take 15 minutes or more to set up. After you are done at the ball field all you do is plug the machine back in and it will charge in approximately 8 hours. It is ready to go again the next day!  

On top of all of these facts, the Zooka Pitching Machine is just plain cool! The operator rolls a ball into the front of the Zooka. The machine detects the ball, compresses air and pumps up to pressure, beeps and flashes a pitch alert, then throws the ball using the compressed air, and displays the speed. A typical throw takes 2 to 5 seconds, depending on the power level. Balls can be "thrown" as fast as 70 MPH from 60 feet. This is truly the best-made product for the price available in the Pitching Machine market. It was developed over 10 years ago using state of the art technology and a sleek design.
