  • Front Toss Machine Recommendations?

    Hi,

    I was hoping to get some recommendations or thoughts if there are any good soft toss style machines to use for doing some front toss for my son. I've had some recurrence of tendinitis that sometimes can make it tougher for throwing, so looking for any ideas that might allow us to practice without worry.

    Thanks

    We do this (minus the "fence"). View the first 4 seconds--pitching is underhand. I sit on a bucket. That coach is standing up.

      I wonder what the deal is with the screen so close to Swisher. Some form of the fence drill while actually hitting front toss??

        That's exactly what it is with a net and a live baseball.

        More detail.....

          Thanks, I've tried different forms, but get pain bringing my arm back behind my mid-plane, if that makes sense.

          So, I thought perhaps I could find some machine that might work. I don't know if there are any that will work well from the front, that don't just pop it up too much.

            It's placed on the middle of the plate, and it's done to work on staying 'inside the ball' and not 'rounding the ball' when pulling the baseball... You need to pull the ball, and if your bat touches the net you've gone 'outside the ball'...

            It's a VERY effective drill... I've seen Kevin Long discuss it, and work with Cano on the exact same thing. I've used it with my own son as well...

            LOL! UnCoach linked the net-drill Long/Cano use, when I was typing this up!

            I don't like my balls to smell like pickles.

              LOL!!!

              I'm curious how you've used it with your own son. Now what I mean by that is....did you use a screen up at the HS ball fields? I have a Bownet Bigmouth. I'm wondering if I get the Bownet soft toss screen that it would work for this drill. We can do it inside at my facility, but not at a ball field.

                The net drill is such a bad drill. No good hitters would ever use it. That clip must be photoshopped because you cant have a good awing with that drill. Just ask Songtitle. Geez you guys stoop so low with your tricks.

                  I have a few of the juggs soft toss machines. They work fine, the kids love them and they hold a charge forever. I recommend it
