Micro-adjusters for pin point control
The best feature that immediately sets the ATEC Casey Pro apart from other high performance machines is its state-of-the-art micro adjustment feature that gives you pin point control for every type of pitch. With these micro-adjusters, you can adjust pitches in specific increments to train the player for every type of pitch, accurately to each segment of the strike zone. Lock in the micro-adjuster to an exact location for repetitive training or mix it up for simulating real game situations.
The micro adjusters can be used to adjust height in a 36” range and horizontally in an 18” range. Just turn the knob and throw the pitch mere inches from your previous ball to master every real game possibility. Position indicators allow you to index pitch locations and changes and make pin point control easy.
Variable speed control
Packed with power that can throw balls with velocities as high as 110 mph, the ATEC Casey Pro is meant to “train you for play down”, which means your opponent’s #1 will look like #4. The fastest ball ever recorded in MLB history is 105 mph; hence, with faster than normal game speeds, this machine will make actual games seem easier and slower.
Throws every type of pitch imaginable
With micro-adjusters that lets you adjust pitch height in a 36” range and horizontally in an 18” range along with further precision created by a center-of-gravity design that can make the machine rotate 360 degrees horizontally and 120 degrees vertically, the machine can throw every type of pitch imaginable from fastballs and sliders to knuckleballs. The center of gravity design allows for easy switching between off speeds and breaking balls.
Great for practicing defensive drills
Hitting a breaking ball is only part of the game. The ATEC Casey Pro is not only meant for batting practice but is known as the top defensive training machine as well and can be easily converted to throw fly balls, grounders and pop-ups for infield and outfield drills. It will do extensive wall drills with each outfielder and then complete a full infield practice to make the team fully ready on game day.
Throws dimpled balls and real leather baseballs
The machine does not only work well with yellow dimpled balls but with real leather baseballs as well without causing any damage to the ball.
