Why Choose An Arm-Style Pitching Machine?
Hitting is all about timing. You must
have the proper timing to know when to start your swing and when to
shift your weight. This is achieved by watching the pitcher's arm and
release of the ball. An arm-style pitching machine is the only type of
pitching machine that gives you that same sense of timing. With each
pitch you see the machine's arm wind up and release the ball. It is the
realistic nature of the machine that allows you to practice the same
fundamentals in the batting cages as you use on the field. Because of
this, the Iron Mike™ arm-style pitching machines from Master Pitching
Machine are the favorite machines of professional players and coaches
1 Year Warranty: All
Iron Mike machine motors are covered under a 1-year manufacturer's
warranty. Electronic circuit boards on the control system are warranted

circuit boards does not cover damage caused by severe electrical surges,
electrical storms or accidental damage by servicing technicians.
Specifically excluded from automatic warranty replacement are pitching
hands, pitching arms, power cables, and power springs.
The Iron Mike MP4 pitching machine is sometimes called the Pro model because
it is the biggest and the heaviest machines. It is still hopper fed, 600 baseball for 400 softballs,
with the positive feed to keep the balls flowing. However there is added steel and thicker steel protection
for the machine on the front so as to eliminate the need for a machine guard if you choose to.

What makes this machine great is its ability to simulate a real pitcher. The Iron Mike MP4 is the only machine on the list to feature an arm-style pitch delivery system. This feature allows for the most game-like situation practice of any machine. It also is fed by a 'hopper' which eliminates the need for another person to stand and deliver the baseballs into the machine. The downside is its versatility - the Iron Mike only pitches, and designed to remain in one location, limiting portability. This is not the machine for everyone, but serves its own purpose of game simulation pitching better than any other machine on the market. The Iron Mike also comes at a cost, which is to be expected of top tier pitching machines.
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 at the Youth Sports Club. 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.
