    About this item

    Named the official Pony Baseball and Softball League pitching machine, the GMaster Louisville Slugger UPM 45 Blue Flame Pitching Machine helps batters and coaches enjoy a more successful batting practice or coach-pitch game. The GMaster Louisville Slugger UPM 45 Blue Flame Pitching Machine is sturdy, portable and requires no electricity, which makes it great for practices and games, home or away. Plus it saves the coach's arm. Because the lever action flicks baseballs with consistent speed and location, it's often used as an alternative in coach-pitch leagues to help overcome the fear factor of live pitching. Young hitters will know where and when the ball will be pitched. For all ages, the Louisville Slugger Blue Flame Pitching Machine allows hitters to work on specific locations and sharpen muscle memory without turning the coach's arm to jelly.

    This is a great machine for baseball or softball either one. Being a coach of two fast-pitch girls teams I would have to say it has helped us tremendously. If you use real softballs or baseballs you may control the pitch inside outside high in the zone or low, it is easy to do once you learn how. It all has to do with placing the ball on the arm in either a two seam or four seam for high or low in the zone, or seam tilted to the inside for an outside pitch or outside for an inside pitch, the guide is a little off on the speed, we found it to be actually a little faster than what it states (it threw a 12 inch thunder heat fast-pitch ball 57 mph from a 40 foot rubber, that was the average with 36 balls) although i might just have a tighter spring (they do tend to vary in tension, but just feel it out), all in all it is great if you take the time to learn how to use it properly.

    I have used one of these coaching 8U, 10U, up to 14 years old in LL & Slow pitch for adults. It is extremely accurate and is a great machine as it is the only one simulating arm action. I use it for batting practice, ground ball drills, and fly ball drills. It gives every athlete an equal chance at a quality attempt and is not dependent on a coach hitting consistent balls to players. I would not want to start a season without one.

    I have had it for 2 years and use it for softball and baseball with both of my kids playing ball. Not only is it great that you don't need electricity, but it is around 20 lbs. and easy to setup and move. Both of my kids have drastically improved their hitting by practicing off this machine. It has a wide variety of setting to adjust the pitches higher, lower, faster and slower. It is very similar to an actual pitcher in that has variances in pitches so they move around a little in the zone and sometimes out of the strike zone a bit. That way the kids learn that every pitch isn't good and learn what to swing at and what to let go by. Highly recommend for both baseball & softball!!!
