The main purpose behind carrying the Heater line was to offer a well sought after brand that offers both durability and is afford-ably priced.  Heater manufactures both baseball and softball pitching machines, along with their newer mini-lite pitching machine which many more players are using to hone in their hitting skills.Steve Klein from Pro Slugger Baseball Equipment and Pitching Machines said:“The Heater pitching machines are one of the most sought after entry-to-mid level pitching machines on the market and we are expecting to be one of their top sellers this year at Pro Slugger.  Portability, reliability and low entry level cost points are what attracted us to feature this line of pitching machines along with their batting cages.”With most of their pitching machines weighing in at just 25 to 50 pounds, (depending on model) this provides a feature most other pitching machine brands cannot compete with.  Combined with its durable steel adjustable legs (for proper pitch height), adjustable head (for baseball pitching, grounders and fly-balls) and its quick adjustment power head, you can now throw real baseballs, mini-lite balls including 11” and 12” softballs.  In addition, many of the these pitch machines come with a bonus ball feeder at no additional cost.  Yet, while most other pitching machine manufactures do offer some of the features, but they weigh twice the weight, and cost 2 to 3 times more.“No other pitch machine manufacture offers these features for this low price,” said Klein.  “Others are designed for heavy duty, high league play, but many coaches and schools just want a pitching machine that they can quickly bring out to the field and return with a high level of performance and minimal maintenance.
