*****Great pitching machine at a much more affordable price.
By Arthur Scrima
*****Debated between the First Pitch XL and the jugs machine.I am glad I purchased the First Pitch XL.The pitching machine has performed very well and with the savings I bought lots of Jugs Sting-Free balls. We have been using the pitching machine a lot for 4 months and my 14 year old girls love it.Follow the instructions and make some very minor adjustments on the top plate and batting practice starts.

FAQ About First Pitch And The XL Pitching Machine
1) What is the difference between the First Pitch Original and the First Pitch XL?
Both of these machines have the same motor and controller and for the most part are the same.
There are three basic differences: First whereas the Original has longer legs for baseball and shorter legs for softball,
the XL has legs that pivot within the machine so that only one set of legs is required. Secondly while the Original will
tip forward for ground balls and back throw fly balls or high arc pitches, the XL will do all this plus it will tip all the way back to throw
pop flies. The Third difference is that the XL has a 360-degree swivel feature.
2) Do you sell and ship to foreign countries?
Yes, we have sold and shipped machines to Eastern Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Israel, Central and
South America and many more countries around the world. (Additional Charges Apply)
3) At what distance is the speed measured?
The speed is measured with a radar gun at sixty feet, measuring the speed of the ball as it exits the machine.
Of course the ball is moving as the radar gun is measuring it but the speed is measured
close to the machine as it is when measuring the speed of a live pitch.
