        Comments about Trend Sports Base Hit Real Pitching Machine:

        This machine has been great. I bought it for my 10 year old son who is in little league and it has exceeded my expectations.

        The best thing about it was the price. I saw some pitching machines from Heater which were a few hundred dollars more, but I didn't want to invest in them until I knew my son was going to keep with baseball.

        One thing I really enjoy is the automatic ball feeder. I looked online and feeders alone are $200-$400. I can set a dozen balls in the feeder, get by my son and coach him as he hits. It's awesome.

        Another thing I noticed is the machine won't pitch fast if the tire doesn't have 45 psi in it. I read a review on this page just a minute ago that said the machine doesn't pitch fast. Not saying this is the case, but I had the same issue until I pumped the tire up. Especially with Heater Sports 60 MPH lite balls, I can't even hit the pitch.

        Overall, I've been very impressed with the machine. If my son keeps playing when he's about 13, I'll jump up to the Heater Sports curveball machine, but for now this is wonderful.

        Hope this helps, thanks!

            This noise making unstable pitching device is only good for "farm". Lacks much of speed, lack accuracy and not good for minor and above. For the money "Louisville Slugger - The Blue Flame Ultimate Pitching Machine" is far better.

                We used this once and the second time it wouldn't work, not sure why just didn't turn on. I am returning it.

                  Comments about Trend Sports Base Hit Real Pitching Machine:

                  This is a good machine .I`m using with softball and machine lite dimple balls(yellow ).The machine pitches them with acuracy .The inner circular motor (which spins & pitches the ball)is made of rubber.I`m using in the basement & so far it is working fine for me .
                  The only problem is with the speed control.The speed knob moves freely to 10 different speed.Sometime when increasing or decreasing the speed is difficult to figure out the change in speed .The automatic ball feeder works fine .I would not use real baseball if have to keep it operational for long .It does good job with machine pitching balls .So far i am happy with it .

                  Comments about Trend Sports Base Hit Real Pitching Machine:

                  This product is a good overall value. Pitches lite balls very well and consistent. You can also use standard batting cage balls and real leather baseballs. The only con so far is that when using standard wieght balls it takes a long time for the wheel to speed back up. The auto ball feed takes much too long in between pitches. Thank goodness it can be removed.
