Our mission is to provide the baseball players of southwest Arkansas a place to train and improve their individual and team skills to any level they desire, provide the best instruction and facilities available, and nurture a system that allows those players to make their respective high school teams, and expose them to college and professional scouts.
Hitting is all about timing. You must have the proper timing to know when to start your swing and when to shift your weight. This is achieved by watching the pitcher’s arm and release of the ball. An Iron Mike arm-style pitching machine is the only type of pitching machine that gives you that same sense of timing. With each pitch you see the machine’s arm wind up and release the ball. It is the realistic nature of the machine that allows you to practice the same fundamentals in the batting cages as you use on the field. Because of this, the Iron Mike arm-style pitching machines are the favorite machines of professional baseball players and coaches worldwide.
3D Sports Training Academy features 2 Iron Mike Machines.
These machines are fully automatic and one is wired with a remote so the instructor can stop and start during a lesson Unlike wheel machines, they feature an arm mechanism which reproduces the actual motion of a live pitcher, allowing batters to work on their timing as well as mechanics. We rigorously maintain our pitching machines so they are always operational and functioning properly, unlike many outdoor cages whose machines are regularly out of service and jam frequently. The Iron Mike machines are loaded with regular raised-stitch baseballs (not machine balls). These baseballs use special stitching to last longer in the pitching machines. Since we use regular baseballs, our balls will not leave the normal “machine ball” marks on your baseball bat.
3D Sports Training Academy offers a JUGS double-wheel pitching machine that can be used for either baseball hitting catching drills, and infield drills. The JUGS is a single ball feed machine that requires a second individual be present to load each pitch. This double-wheel machine has separate speed controls for each wheel and 3 degrees of positioning that allows adjustment vertically, horizontally, and diagonally. The variable speed controls allow the machine to pitch fastballs, curve balls, screwballs, knuckle balls, drop balls and rise balls with minor adjustments.
