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.

WHAT IS MACHINE-PITCH?

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).

AGE RANGE

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