Discount Iron Mike MP-6 Pitching Machine
The Iron Mike MP-6 pitching machine is the pitching machine of choice of major league baseball teams and is the most heavy duty, reinforced arm style pitching machine made. It throws up to 85 MPH and can hold 600 baseballs or 400 softballs - an entire team's worth of batting practice!
A Master Pitch icon, the Iron Mike MP-6 is a sturdy machine but its frame is not quite as reinforced as its big brother - the Iron MP-4 pitching machine
. It also does not include a Positive Feed Control Unit that keeps seamed balls flowing properly through the automatic feed system. You can certainly add a positive feed control unit via the option box located above the Add to Cart button on this page. If the extra reinforcement and feed control is important to you, you may want to buy a Iron Mike MP-4 pitching machine
, which is the same machine but it includes the extra protection and positive feed control unit.
The Iron Mike MP-6 is equipped with a heavy duty arm and hand system with a lockable arm guard cover, ensuring the pitching machine will last for many years. As with any arm style pitching machine, the MP-6 lets batters see the windup and pitch exactly like they would from a real pitcher - invaluable training for getting a hitter's swing timing down.
Use it with baseballs, 11 or 12 inch softballs and even tennis balls - real, dimpled or lite balls. Because the Iron Mike MP-6 does not apply pressure to balls like wheel-style pitching machines, it can throw real balls without damaging the balls. Real balls last just as long with an Iron Mike MP-6 as they do with a real pitcher!
Built to last by Master Pitch, very little maintenance is required - just check the nuts and bolts from time to time to ensure they are tight and grease the chain and apply oil in a few spots and you should get many years of use out of your Iron Mike machine.
At 610 pounds, it is definitely not a portable pitching machine. It's a machine that is best used in permanent batting cages and is powered by any standard 110 volt electrical outlet. The Iron Mike MP-6 includes hold-down clips for permanent installation.
Also included with the MP-6 is a FREE remote control with an 80 foot long cord. This allows batters to start and stop the machine (no more missed pitches running back to the plate after the machine has been started).
