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!!!

    Comments about Franklin Sports Franklin MLB Pitching Machine:

    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!! :)

    Comments about Franklin Sports Franklin MLB Pitching Machine:

    Its a good toy for the price. Since it uses batteries it takes a bit to spin up. The included balls are about all I found will work with it, anything heavier and it doesn't have enough power to throw the ball. The pitches are erratic so I guess it teaches you to never know whats coming next! My son still has alot of fun with it.

    Comments about Franklin Sports Franklin MLB Pitching Machine:

    This machine couldn't pitch a ball anywhere we wanted it to! We tried placing it on a hard surface, adjusting the tilt and adjusting the distance to the batter. And it couldn't place the ball in the same proximity twice. It is junk, and I'd recommend something else. Waste of money. We immediately returned it.

        It's a good little machine to help kids improve their batting average. Wish it could pitch have your balls but for the price it's great. You have to spend the big bucks for a pitching machine like that :-)

                Bought for my 6 yo who is starting baseball for the first time. I bought this towel on hand eye coordination for batting. We can actually also use it for catching. I didn't think he was ready for real baseballs coming at him so this is perfect.

                            My two small boys ages 3 & 4 love this machine. Hours of entertainment. I would by the extra baseballs right away. -- You will need them. Good quality for the price. Disappointed that this machine does not have a power supply adaptor available. Takes (4) D Batteries.
