Machine-Pitch (MP) at CCTBC
Early in the season, in partnership with South Perth Baseball Club (SPBC) will be running several machine-pitch come-and-try sessions for tee-ball players that want to have-a-go at hitting a moving ball.
Sessions are FREE for current members from age 7 up and intended to be a fun introduction to baseball.
What is Machine-Pitch?
Machine-pitch baseball is a form of baseball designed to introduce players to hitting a moving ball. The ball is pitched by a specific machine rather than a pitcher to give consist speed and accuracy. The UPM45 pitching machine is a spring powered device manually set and released by an adult that can be set to pitch at 18-44 mph (29-70 km/h).
This is a home-and-away series played on Friday nights.
Games are 3 to 6 innings or approx 60 minutes.
There is also a MP Carnival held over the Easter long weekend.
U7 to U10 at the end of the season (1 May)
