yielding more potential success with regular sized balls!
Why Marty Schupak and the Youth Sports Club love this product!
We have mentioned numerous times that the best baseball training and softball training is when it can be done in a confined area and when the participants get multiple repetitions. If you like the concept of a batter taking practice swings with a heavy bat then using his or her own lighter bat, it is the same concept with the Jugs Small Ball Pitching Machine. The Jugs credo “Focus Small, Hit Big” will set players up for success with this item. Each ball is made up of polyurethane-foam and measure only 5-inches. It’s weight is only 5 ounces which makes the activity with this machine safe and fun. It can be used for ground balls and fly balls also. Believe it or not many of the sales for The Jugs Small Ball Pitching Machine from this Youth Sports Club web site are from ice hockey teams for goalie and passing training. One of the more brilliant yet overlooked advantages of this pitching machine is the non-threatening aspect when the younger kids are hitting or fielding. Because the balls are small and soft, the chances of a player getting hurt is very remote. The practice drills you can do are endless if you put on your creative hats!
Focus Small, Hit Big! The JUGS Small-Ball Pitching Machine throws the JUGS Polyurethane-Foam 5-in./0.5-oz. Small Ball - forcing the hitter to focus harder on the ball. This helps improve accuracy, mental concentration, and depth perception. It also teaches the fundamentals while removing the fear factor.

Kids love it. Wife loves it. I love it. It's fun for the whole family but we are an ultra competitive sporty family.
Saw immediate improvement from my 7yr old son using it, plus he was so excited the balls were soft. Confidence
can mean a lot with batting. Buy the yellow balls, much easier to spot when shagging balls.
We just received this today and we already love it. It was purchased for our 9 yr old son but I (mom) had a blast hitting balls.
It makes practice a fun time. I would have given it 5 stars but I think it could be improved with a height adjustment for people
of different heights. When the ball begins to drop is does so rapidly.
Absolutely the greatest machine for training kids indoors. Especially when there are no batting cages in Brooklyn New York.
Safe, accurate and fun. Throws a great curve ball in addition to good pitching speed. Love it. So does my Son!
Smooth transaction with responsive web site!
The jugs small ball machine is great!
I would suggest buying the yellow hi-vis jugs small balls for better pick up of the ball exiting the machine.
Thanks coach Schupak!
The is a great practice tool. Raised my daughters average 80 points.
Very good pitching machine to get the kids to focus on small targets allowing them to make better contact on a regular size baseball. Easy transferable from garage to the field. A special thanks to the Youth Sports Club and Marty Schupak.
