The Pitching Pad

As a child just learning how to throw, you have the entire area inside the gray outline in which to try and hit. As the person develops, they can then concentrate on targeting the different colored areas. Finally, as an advanced player, they can target specific numbers in which to throw.

The different stages of learning are all accounted for, and the player can develop at their own pace while challenging themselves along the way.

The numbers on The Pitching Pad are used as an advanced training tool.

In baseball, the movement of an off-speed pitch is oftentimes described by using numbers on a clock for reference. For example, a good curve ball can be described as moving 12 to 6. This is because the ball would start high in what would be in the 12 o’clock position and then move straight down to what would be the 6 o’clock position. The same is true for all the pitches that a person can throw, right or left handed.

By using the markings on The Pitching Pad as reference points, a person can develop their skills better and more rapidly. A player can learn how far their pitches will move and where to start them, so they will end up where they want. The player knows exactly where the ball ends up each time, so they can more effectively make adjustments.

We know that accuracy and control are not just necessary for pitchers, but for everyone that walks onto the field -- catchers, outfielders, infielders, quarterbacks, etc.  The Pitching Pad is the right tool for either the professional or the beginner, and it is the right system to take a player’s game to the next level.  The versatility and longevity of The Pitching Pad makes it one of the BEST tools for a player’s development.


Can The Pitching Pad be used for baseball and softball?
Yes. The Pad can be used for both sports. The strike zones for both are the same. It can even be used for football by hanging it higher on a fence. This makes The Pad a great tool for players who participate in multiple sports or for families who have more than one child who play in different sports.

What ages can The Pitching Pad be used for?
The Pad can be used for all ages, from beginner through professional player. The beauty of the system is that it can be adapted to fit the players development level. This also allows a player to progress at their own pace.

How hard is it to set up and use The Pad?
The Pad is very easy to set up and use. There are three straps at the top and two at the bottom that can be used to attach it to just about any fence. It also weighs less than ten pounds, so it is very easy to carry. From the backyard to the baseball field, once it is attached, all you have to do is just step back and begin throwing.

Is The Pad just for pitchers or can it be used for other positions as well?
The Pad can and should be used for players of all positions who throw a ball. All players can benefit from being more accurate with their throwing. (hitting a cut-off man, throwing over to first, etc.)

Why is The Pitching Pad better that the nets or screens that are tied to a frame?
The graphic on the face of The Pad is more versatile for players of all development levels. The Pad can be attached to just about any fence and takes up minimal space while being used. It is designed to prevent the transfer of energy from the ball to whatever it is attached. This will help prevent the player from damaging any structure behind The Pad.


“The Pitching Pad has helped us be more consistent with locating pitches. The more we have used it the better we have gotten. The Pad also saves us time by freeing up our catchers so they can take live bullpens and work on their fundamentals. The pitchers throwing on the side or doing flat work can use The Pad to help them train at a high level while my catchers are taking live bullpens.”

Coach Joe Castillo

"The pitching pad is a great training tool for baseball players of any age or ability level. It is easy to set up and easy to use and doesn't require a catcher for feedback; you get it instantly yourself. It not only will improve your accuracy, it will help you polish your tools and be able to transfer those to actual game situations. I would recommend this product for anyone who wants to improve their pitching staff, lower the amount of walks and ERA, and become a more accurate pitcher."
