The value of the MaxBP machine is found in increasing your reaction timing. It can increase your hand-eye coordination, pitch recognition in the batter’s box, with quicker adjustments to off-speed pitches. MaxBP can also assist catchers with their receiving and blocking skills as the “React & Track” training video demonstrates.
Improved reaction timing is established with the use of the MaxBP pitching machine. It will improve overall hand-eye coordination as well as increase pitch recognition in the batter’s box through quicker adjustments to off-speed pitches.
In this video, Ryan Harrison with Slow The Game Down displays the value of using the MaxBP Wiffle® ball pitching machine for the “Using Your Eyes” training drill. Professional baseball player and catcher, Tyler Heineman, joins Ryan for the drill, demonstrating major league talent. Notice how Tyler is crouching in his catcher stance throughout the drill with his safety glasses while wearing a batting glove after it crosses home plate.
This drill can be done in a cage if using a baseball. But, using a tee AND a MaxBP machine you have set up to target the inside pitch, as with so many great lessons that used to require a partner, you can practice this all on your own. One batting tee AND one MaxBP machine set to soft toss required unless you have another person and an L screen to perform, as we just mentioned.
