We purchased this product for our son last Christmas and it was a total waste of money. It pithes the ball all over the place. Our son would keep moving around to where it pitched the ball last and it would be 2-3 feet off the next pitch - very discouraging. He ended up getting hit in the eye Christmas morning because of this. Fortunately, it does use plastic balls or he could have really been hurt. If you truly want this item, I'd mail you ours for free just to get it out of the garage!!!

        Comments about Franklin Sports Franklin MLB Pitching Machine:

        This is a great little pitching machine. Obviously it's not the most durable and top of the line, it's plastic and battery powered after all.

        but for 25 bucks, it's great. My son is 7 and is hitting "kid pitching" for the first time. I'ts difficult because kids are wild and at this age you need to figure out to swing or not. I like this machine because it's around the strike zone, but not always a strike. Perfect for my son and what we're trying to learn now.

        It's simple and easy to use. Again, for 25 bucks you can't beat it, 5 stars. If i paid 100, it would get 1 star.

        Just understand what you are buying here and you'll be pleased.

        Haven't owned it long enough to know how it chews thru batteries yet.

            We bought this for our 7 year old daughters birthday and used it over the weekend. The pitches go everywhere except over home plate. She had a very hard time hitting them because of this. After only using it two times the batteries started to die already. Would be nice if you were able to plug it in too. I don't see us using it very often because I am not buying four D batteries every week.

              Bought it to use for my dogs to catch balls. When
              batteries are fresh it throws them a good distance. However the batteries do not last
              very long.
              The dogs do enjoy chasing the balls and it is a
              good way for them to get exercise without over
              extending your arm.

                    What a great way to help my kids practice swinging! It changes heights each pitch so it really makes you focus on the ball. And love whiffle balls! They can play anywhere without me worring about broken windows or dented cars.

                          This product does not come as advertised on the web site. It only comes with the machine and 6 plastic baseballs even though it is advertised as including a "27 inch collapsible bat and 8 white Aero Strike plastic baseballs". The machine seems to work fine, you just need to know you will need to purchase a bat separately.

                                This is a Christmas gift so it hasn't been thoroughly used, but I tried it out to make sure it works. It took a few minutes for the balls to start shooting out correctly. Also, I had to adjust it to the highest (tallest) setting or one ball would shoot out and immediately another would roll out.

                                  My grandson is now in T-Ball so I went staright out to buy it. Great product. Very sturdy for a small battery operated pitching machine.
