Machine Pitch at SPBC

In 2019-2020, SPBC have partnered with Canning Cougars Tee-Ball Club Inc (CCTBC) to develop a friendly Machine Pitch introduction program with a view to eventually form a team to participate in competitions and/or carnivals.


Machine-pitch baseball is a form of baseball designed to introduce players to hitting a moving ball. The ball is pitched by a specific machine rather than a pitcher to give consist speed and accuracy. The UPM45 pitching machine is a spring powered device manually set and released by an adult that can be set to pitch at 18-44 mph (29-70 km/h).


U7 to U10 at the end of the season (1 May)


Baseball WA and Little League WA run the official competition called "Little League Minor – Machine Pitch".

This is a home-and-away series played on Friday nights.

There is also a MP Carnival held over the Easter long weekend.


The Baseball WA Junior Baseball "Club-Ball By-Laws" sets the competition rules and modifies the international rules set by the current Little League Baseball Rulebook "Green Book".
