    Item Description

    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.

    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.6 out of 5★ by 40reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by The best mechanical pitching machine 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. 10/13/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Worth Every Cent 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. 05/23/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Pitching Machine! 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!!! 05/28/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome Pitching Machine!!! I struggled trying to throw my 7 year old son consistent strikes while practicing at home.I pitched up thought high school so I can throw a fast strike but practicing at home with plastic practice balls is very difficult. I can't use regular balls as we'd lose them in the woods or break a windows.The UPM 45 will throw a hard baseball, soft t-ball, plastic practice ball, tennis ball or any other type of ball very consistently.I wish I knew about these last year when my son started playing ball. The teams were all coach pitch last year but have since changed to machine pitch using the UPM 45.I even picked up a 12'x14'x70' batting cage net just so we can use the UPM 45 with real baseballs in the yard.I wish they had these when I was a kid. 04/26/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great pitching machine for the price. I would give this item 4.5 stars, but the option was not there. Our softball playing daughters use it for batting practice, catching pop flys and practice for the catcher and shortstop, as the machine shoots grounders, level pitches and fly balls. Was going to buy this item, then happened to catch it on sale and free shipping to my home, so it was a great buy. Hoping it lasts us years, dont know how long the springs will last, we do use it a lot. 05/03/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Product This product is great. We have used it for three years now. I absolutely love it. My sons little league teams actually switched over to this machine this year. It is the most accurate machine we have used. Our players hit better off this machine than all the others we've used. It is very useful, and I highly recommend it. 05/29/2009
