There are many different factors that baseball players have to take into account when attempting to improve their batting. Even the smallest details, including timing and mechanics, have to be fine-tuned to ensure consistency that translates to real game-time results. Following are some of the ways that you can enhance your batting practice with a pitching machine.
If you know the speed at which your opponent pitches, you can fine-tune your timing beforehand by adjusting a pitching machine to meet that individual speed. While most pitchers aren’t consistent, this can ensure that you have developed your timing to meet the general range the pitcher throws in. Not only is this invaluable practice for a player that is first at-bat, it can help make them more comfortable.
Extended Training Sessions
Practicing with a live pitcher will often deteriorate with each pitch as their throwing arm becomes tired. By employing a pitching machine, you will have a consistent supply of pitches as long as you are willing to keep swinging at them. The ability to see multiple pitches in a row allows you to work on the mechanics of your swing and improve your form.
Strike Zone Accuracy Support
If you struggle to hit a certain area of the strike zone, you likely would benefit from the use of a pitching machine. Each pitching machine can be set to provide pitches to the exact location you need them. This provides valuable support for baseball players that need to improve their accuracy from distinct parts of the strike zone.
Practice on Your Own Schedule
For players that consistently want to improve their batting, it can be hard to find a pitcher that wants to practice at the same frequency. When you use a pitching machine, you are able to practice on your own schedule, whenever you want to. This can help shake off the effects of a bad game and keep you from getting stuck in a batting rut.
