At The Hitting Academy, we use Iron Mike pitching machines for our automated batting cages.  We love these machines because it’s the closest simulation to real pitching that a batter can see. 

But what is also great about these pitching machines is that they can bounce the pitches to accommodate Cricket players. 


Cricket is a very popular sport in our area and we have many Cricket players that come in to practice their swings off of the Iron Mike pitching machines. 

The speeds range from 40mph up to 75mph.  We use the same leather balls that a baseball player would hit and we can adjust the bounce depending on your preference.  If you are a Cricket player looking to get in some additional practice, come and check out our indoor facility.
