All pitching in this division is done using a pitching machine. By controlling the pitches with a pitching machine, there is more action at the plate and in the field. Fear of being hit by a pitched ball is diminished. It makes the game safer and improves the playing confidence and ability of all participants. It removes the boredom, which is often the result of either overpowering or inadequate pitching, by ensuring all pitches are strikes. This results in fewer errors and greater throwing accuracy due to increased activity. The Machine Pitch Division is an excellent way to continue teaching the fundamentals of the game and building player confidence.
