Can I use any of the machines for slow pitch softball?

Unfortunately, we do not yet have a machine that is made for slow pitch softball. Our machines are too fast for slow pitch and cannot simulate the 6-12ft arc.

What type of balls can you use with the pitching machines?

Dimpled, low seam, or regular seamed baseballs/softballs can be used in our machines. Dimpled and low seam are recommended since they will be the most accurate and not wear down the wheels as much as regular seamed balls will.
