3 Coaching Tips for Owners and Users of the BatAction Baseball Trainer

BatAction Baseball Batting Machine Coaching & Training Tips:

Tip #1 - The BatAction Hitting Machine operates best with two powerbands. Most advanced hitters in high school use the 2-band setting. With two bands the machine returns at a pace and rythmn that seems to allow the batter to be comfortable and to reset between swing. The BatAction Machine's ball speed is determined by the bat speed and power of the batter. The harder you hit the ball, the faster it will be traveling when it returns to the batter.

Tip #2 - The BatAction Baseball Trainer must be set up on level ground. If the ground is not level, there will be undue stress placed on one of the legs. So always make sure that all four legs are on the ground and level before inserting your groundpins. Indoor use is not a problem because the surgace is level. You should anchor your machine with snadbags when using it on concrete, floors, or other surfaces that do not allow the use of groundpins.

Tip #3 - If your batting machine returns slow or is not returning smoothly, follow the instructions for safely applying grease to the axle. You should raise the axle half way out of the unit, put a dab of grease on the axle and slide it back into the machine. Make sure you disconnect all powerbands before you raise the axle. Follow the safety instructions when you do any maintenance work on your machine.
