Iron Mike Pitching Machines are one of the most recognized pitching machines in the world. Developed in the 1970’s these arm-style, mechanically simple, rugged, and practical machines soon became the standard of the batting cage industry. Now over forty years later they still remain one of the most popular brands around.
All of our Iron Mike Pitching Machines are arm-style, which means with each pitch you see the machine’s arm wind up and release the ball. This gives the batter the same sense of timing achieved by watching the pitcher’s arm and release of the ball. It is the realistic nature of the machine (the only type of pitching machine of its kind) that allows you to practice the same fundamentals during practice as you use on the field during a real game.
Iron Mikes are easy to set up, use, adjust and maintain. There’s not much to replace and what parts you might need are readily available. They can be used inside or outside, do not require extra auto feeders, and throw consistent strikes. If your need is for a pitching machine that will last for years and doesn’t need to be moved or transported often, then these machines are a great choice.
