Comments about Franklin MLB Youth Pitching Machine:

This was a birthday present for a 5 year old and much enjoyed. He uses it each day. The delivery service was fantastic and arrived well before the scheduled dates. A good value for the price and great for this age group.

    Comments about Franklin MLB Youth Pitching Machine:

    Itis good for beginners. Spend the extra money and buy the franklin pactice balls (whiffle balls). The pactice balls work better in the machine and are more constitant then the balls that come with the machine. Strike everytime.

    Inconsistent pitching

    By Baseball enthusiast

    from Irvine, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Franklin MLB Youth Pitching Machine:

    This machine is not very consistent with pitching strikes to the same location. Out of eight pitches, maybe two to three are strikes. For the price, I wouldn't recommend it.

        Comments about Franklin MLB Youth Pitching Machine:

        This machine is so inconsistent it is unusable. Three feet behind batter, seven feet to the other side, and so on. It is goning right back to the store! I guess I need to buy the $200 machine.
