instant baseball batting cage featuring the ATEC M3
There are a lot of good players in high school with their sights set on playing collegiate ball. There are a lot of good college players hoping to continue playing after their education. Unfortunately, there are far more good players than there are spots available at the next level. We have put a cage and pitching machine package together for teams or individuals trying to develop their players to compete at the next level. The concept behind the equipment included in this package is simple: " from good to great", because at the next level a "good player" just won't be good enough.
This package includes:
A 70' X 14' X 12' #45 PE Batting Tunnel Net
2" Steel Tube Batting Cage Frame
Batting Cage Installation Hardware
6' X 8' Heavy Rubber Cage Backstop
7' Protective L-Screen
Free-Standing, Steel Framed Cage Door
ATEC M3 Pitching Machine
ATEC Automatic Remote Control
ATEC Bucket Automatic Ball Feeder
Two 5-Gallon Buckets
ATEC Pitching Machine Cover
48 ATEC Hi.Per Leather Baseballs
You know full well that anyone that has nabbed a scholarship or made the roster at the "next level" has put the work in to claim what is theirs. They ran a few more drills than the other guys, made reservations at the cage to take extra BP when they could, or they stayed after practice to take a few more at-bats with the machine. They had access to the quality practice facility. Their only challenges seem to have been related to schedules or resources being available. That includes finding someone qualified to throw batting practice live or operate the machine, not to mention finding open cages at practice facilities, or pitching machines advanced enough to challenge them.
These are the types of players this package has been designed for. It removes the logistical challenges from the equation and gives your player tools to become a great player amongst great players.....a professional quality, private training facility, that can be used anytime, with a teammate, coach, or solo.
It starts with the cage, no reservations required, and no wait. The batting cage is 70 foot deep, 14 foot wide, and 12 foot high, allowing for proper distance from the machine to the plate, and plenty of room to operate. Featuring a robust.8mm/#45, twisted and knotted, poly twine net. Built to hold up to the rigors of heavy team use by multiple big hitters. Installations for training facilities, schools, and commercial cages usually result in 6-8 years of life before it starts to become worn.
We choose a batting tunnel that uses polyethylene (PE) netting versus nylon netting to ensure it stands up to the wind, rain, suns, and snow. PE netting does not absorb water, holds up well under direct sun, and it is more economical than nylon. In the Southern regions of the U.S. and especially along the coast, high heat and humidity shorten the life span of nylon netting, even when it is treated. After three years of outdoor exposure in extreme conditions, PE netting retains a higher tensile strength than nylon. The batting cage netting also features a heavy rope border along the bottom, corners, and top ribs.
To help lengthen the life of the net even further, the included large, ultra heavy-duty rubber backstop will protect the batting cage net behind the batter, which is the part of the cage that has the heaviest usage. The 6' X 8' backstop features heavy grommets, and is constructed with thick rubber over a fabric core, making it more durable than canvas, and absorbs more energy the vinyl.
The tunnel net will be hung on the square, from the inside of a heavy cage frame constructed from 2" steel tubing. They are a trapezoid design for wind stability. The net hangs on the inside of the frame. We supply everything you need to put your frame and net up in about 2.5 hours time.
We added a sturdy steel framed batting cage door to easily enter and exit the cage. it has a self-standing design and is simple and easy to install. The door helps you control where traffic enters and exits the batting cage, and will give your cage a professional clean appearance
BP in the cage will be thrown by one of the most complete pitching machines on the market, by the premier pitching machine manufacturer ATEC Sports. ATEC has been the preferred pitching machine for MLB and the NCAA for decades and makes one of the highest quality machines for the serious player. The "green machines" are common sites on the fields of college, university, minor league, and professional teams around the world,
We selected the ATEC M3 offensive pitching machine, as it is built to train professional-level ballplayers. Its industry-leading 3-wheel design allows for hitters to have complete visibility of the ball throughout the entire pitch cycle, which improves their timing and increases their pitch recognition. With the addition of a third wheel; speed, accuracy, and spin are maximized due to the ball’s increased surface contact with the wheels.
The M3 hurls regulation leather baseballs, dimple and foam machine baseballs. It has a high definition ball chute with an uninterrupted view of the ball for a "live arm" sense of timing. This gives the hitter a clear and uninterrupted view of the ball throughout the entire pitch cycle, allowing batters to time their stride.
The precise "Quick-Pitch-Select" speed control dials to quickly change between MLB level fastball with speeds up to 105mph to right and left-handed breaking pitches including curveballs, sliders, and splitters. Using only the speed control knobs, pitches can be easily dialed-in without making any physical adjustments to the machine, helping you improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your batting practice
ATEC's proven concave wheel treads increase ball grip and maximize pitch accuracy Dual durometer wheel hubs increase maximum pitch speed and minimize recovery time. It is mounted to a durable steel frame and wide base tripod absorb machine recoil for maximum accuracy. The ABS wheel guards help protect the operator and the machine wheel.
The ATEC Bucket Feeder will reduce the time spent between shagging balls and resuming the current training session. Perfect for coaches looking for a hands-off approach for machine operation, allowing better focus on player development; or players looking for a solo training solution. The auto-feeder includes a 5-gallon bucket that will hold 48 baseballs (and this package comes with 48 of the best), and an easy to load, pivoting head design allowing you to load the bucket in the upright position. You can also reload the ATEC bucket feeder with a new bucket in under 30 seconds. It is also compatible with 6-gallon buckets (not included). A 6-gallon bucket will hold 60 baseballs.
We have added a wireless feeder remote to pair with your bucket feeder. This "on or off" remote control can pause the stream of pitches for instruction and allows coaches the ability to focus on training rather than machine operation. It is also perfect for the player looking for a solution to train alone. Remote has a 50-foot range. An ATEC Machine Cover made of durable, water-resistant nylon, will protect the M3, from dust and dirt accumulation, and help extend the life of your machine.
Machines account for 70% of consistent and accurate ball flight, and the balls account for the remaining 30%. Each ball in the ATEC Hi.Per series is the MOST accurate in its class. The ATEC Hi. Per Pro leather baseball is the regulation size & weight and built with proprietary aerodynamic designs that maximize your M3's accuracy to help achieve the most consistent ball flight every time. The premium full-grain leather minimizes residue buildup and maximizes ball lifespan, and the low-profile high-tensile-strength Kevlar Accu-Seams maximize ball flight accuracy and durability. The balls are safe for use with all performance bats and are indoor & outdoor training approved
To protect your M3, or pitcher throwing live BP in your cage, we have included a 7' padded L-screen of the highest quality. Not just any screen, this is the official L-Screen of the MLB. It has 2-inch powder-coated tubing wrapped with a half-inch heavy-duty, high impact foam sleeve, reducing ball rebound and maximizing durability, creating a safer training session. The strong, double-faced net and diagonal vertical tube provide maximum protection.
The premium quality batting cage mat that is included in this cage package has been carefully manufactured to be durable and offer excellent foot traction. The heavy-duty design is also steel spike proof, prevents tears and abrasions, and will hold against a batter's twisting. Plus these hitting mats can be easily rolled up and stored. This green colored baseball mat includes a thick 5 mm foam backing, inlaid lines with white turf lines and a thrown down home plate. If the surface of the cage floor is uneven, rocky, built around a court, or concrete surface, this will give footing to your hitter on those surfaces that lack the ability of the player to dig in. We also choose a throw-down home plate, as opposed to an inlaid or printed plate, allowing users to rotate the mat and extend its life.
