Discount Spinball Wizard 3 Wheel Pitching Machine
The Spinball Wizard 3 Wheel Pitching Machine is almost identical to the Rawlings Pro Line 3 Wheel Pitching Machine except that the Spinball Wizard 3 Wheel machine is $500 less expensive. The main difference between the two machines is that the Rawlings version has a push button digital control panel and the Spinball version uses analog knobs for selecting your speed, type of pitch and amount of spin. Both machines are made by the same manufacturer - Spinball Sports. Only you can decide if having a Rawlings logo and pushing buttons instead of turning knobs is worth an extra $500 or not.
Manufactured entirely in the U.S.A. by Spinball Sports, the Spinball Wizard Three Wheel Pitching Machine is certainly at the top of the class. Pitch fastballs, curves, changeups, sliders, screwballs and even knuckleballs up to to 100 MPH with the Spinball Wizard 3 pitching machine without having to manually change wheel speeds or the angle of the wheels. Choose from 12 different spin types, set the speed of the pitch and whether you want it to have a high, medium or low amount of spin (or none at all) and the pitching machine automatically adjusts the spin of the wheels to throw the pitch. Knobs on the control panel allow you to set the exact pitch type, speed and amount of curve meaning you can switch between pitch types with precision. Better still, the three wheel design lets hitters see the ball all the way through the feeding motion until the pitch, which helps batters hone their timing.
Pitch location is also incredibly simple. Two different hand wheels allow you to set the vertical and horizontal location of the pitch. No more stopping to adjust clamps - just rotate the micro adjustment wheels up-down and/or left-right and you're set to pitch to a different plate location. The third wheel makes this revolutionary setup possible. It not only acts as a stabilizer but because its spin and speed is also controlled by the on-board computer chip, the head never needs to be moved.
The Spinball Wizard 3 Wheel Pitching Machine doesn't just throw baseballs; it can throw 11" or 12" softballs, cricket balls, tennis balls or even lacrosse balls (real balls, lite balls or dimple balls). There are five different types of Spinball Wizard 3 pitching machines available. Please select the type of machine you want when ordering:
- Regular Baseball Only: has a baseball feeder chute and a pitch release point of 60 inches
- Softball Only: has a softball feeder chute and a pitch release point of 32 inches
- Baseball-XL Only: has a baseball feeder chute and a pitch release point of 73 inches
- Regular Baseball & Softball Combo: has both a baseball and a softball feeder chute and a pitch release point of 32 inches OR 60 inches
- Baseball-XL & Softball Combo: has both a baseball and a softball feeder chute and a pitch release point of 32 inches OR 73 inches
For the ultimate in convenience add an Automatic ball feeder so that you can practice solo!
You can order one set of legs for either baseball or softball or both sets of legs for baseball AND softball. This machine also has the option of using XL legs instead of the standard 53 inch release point baseball legs. They have a pitch release point of 73 inches - the average release point of college and major league baseball pitchers.
PLEASE NOTE: If you order an XL Leg Baseball machine (or XL Baseball Legs/Softball combo machine) you CANNOT use an automatic ball feeder with it. The feeder will not be tall enough. You would be better off ordering a regular leg baseball pitching machine and an automatic ball feeder. In order to let gravity carry the balls downward from the feeder to the pitching machine, automatic ball feeders automatically come with XL legs - the same XL legs that a baseball pitching machine uses. You can swap the legs of the feeder and baseball pitching machine and use the feeder in regular height baseball pitching machine and use the machine with the feeder's XL legs, feeding the balls in manually. If that sounds confusing, please call us. We'll be happy to try to make better sense of this for you!
Engineered with aerospace grade steel, the Spinball Wizard 3 Wheel Pitching Machine is definitely the lightest 3 wheel pitching machine made. That being said it is still quite heavy, weighing 119 pounds. Fortunately, transport wheels are included with the machine so bringing it to a field is no sweat.
Unlike pitching machines which use air filled tires, all Spinball Sports pitching machines use solid wheels with one inch thick urethane treads. Not only do they last longer than air filled tires, they pitch truer, always stay in balance and have a far shorter recovery time between pitches. Instead of having to wait 8 seconds between pitches like you do with other pitching machines, the Pro Line 3 Wheel Pitching Machine is ready for its next pitch in under 3 seconds.
