Assembly was very simple and the assembly instructions were very clear and well written. If you know someone who loves to play baseball or catch, this is a must have item.
I thought of purchasing an automatic pitcher that uses batteries, or i could plug in if I could find an outlet at the field or use a small generator. But these issues would just be something else I would need to worry about. With the Louisville Slugger, and you need is this item some balls, and a bat or whatever you want to practice with this item. I recommend this above all other pitching machines.
We have discovered the following - all of which are minor, but could cause frustration if you're practice is stalled while you fine tune it - or yourself.
-- The ball will be delivered differently depending on where the arm is latched. Still within in the strike zone most of the time, but when working with new batters consistency is best.
-- The release should be consistent. As you get tired/bored etc you have a tendency to "jerk" your arm back to release the ball.
-- Maybe because it's new and the springs are still tight - it throws hard balls faster than the speed listed in the manual and on the machine. We had to notch ours down to one below what was "suggested" to attain the correct speeds.
None of these are issues with the machine - it does what it is supposed to. Just be sure you, as an operator, do what you are supposed to.
My daughter is eight years old and in her first kid-pitch softball league. Unfortunately, the girls at this age can't pitch -- underhand is HARD after only throwing overhand previously -- and so she's getting no practice hitting.
So we got this weird looking machine and she has improved in just the first three sessions. It's pretty accurate, but each pitch is a little different so my daughter has to actually adjust to the pitches. The adjustments to the machine are simple to make, and anyone can use it. As a major benefit it's not electric and light, so you can take it to the field to play.
