FAQ On The Jugs MVP Pitching Machine
1. Can you set this machine with exact MPH?
Yes! I know with some machines from other manufactures you can only set the machine in increments of 10 MPH. This machine will throw for 20-52 MPH. If you want it set at 49 MPH, you can do it. And the benefit with this is the baseball training or softball training your child will get will mean that you can measure the hitting improvement over the long term.
2. What is the usual life of a machine like this for a league?
As with anything else, the better care and maintenance the longer it will last. Remember that Jugs Sports gives a Five-Year Guarantee on this item. There are some common sense things to do if your budget allows. First you should get a cover. As well as the machine is built, I think the cleaner you keep it and the more dust and dirt you keep away from the machine will only enhance it's durability. Second get a screen to protect the machine and whoever is feeding it with balls. Even though the players using the Jugs MVP Pitching machine are young, constant pounding over the course of the season may affect it.
3. Hey Coach Schupak, in your books and videos you seem to really promote being creative and not going overboard with the money. Why should I spend this kind of money for a pitching machine when I can pitch to my team?
Thanks for buying my books and videos. Yes I do preach being creative but I also love to mix in modern technology and balance it out if you can afford it. Here is an example. The Jugs MVP Pitching Machine is set up to just throw strikes which is great. As a coach you have mix in live pitching during practice with this excellent machine. Players must learn to hold up on swinging if the ball does not look like a strike. When I coached I was big on bunting. I always taught my players when I give you the bunt sign, it only means to bunt at buntable balls. So in practice during bunting drills I always mixed in throwing balls outside the plate with strikes. In closing I've seen the Jugs MVP Pitching Machine in action and for baseball training it works great and keeps games moving.
It also saves coaches arms!
