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 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!!!

                          My son is a baseball nut and he went bonkers when he saw this pitching machine at Toys R Us!! He opened it up the second we got home and we played a family game. It throws a ball every 7 seconds so it's definitely enough time to wind up again and take a swing. Sometimes it didn't throw it all the way to where the batter was standing, but overall it pitched it well. It's been great so far!! :)
