The operator rolls a ball into the barrel 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.
