2014 Holiday Gift Guide Batter Controlled Pitching Machine from Hammacher Schlemmer #HGG

I was provided the below mentioned product in exchange for this post.

     Hammacher Schlemmer really is one of those stores that has just about anything your looking for.  I didn't really know much about this store.  When I was given the opportunity to receive an item to put in the holiday gift guide I was both excited and amazed at all they have.  I think you could take care of just about everyone on your holiday shopping list here.  They have electronics, apparel, home, outdoors, personal care, sports & leisure, toys, travel, holiday, and more.  It was really hard to narrow it down to an individual item since the store carries so many great products.  I finally came to the conclusion that the Batter Controlled Pitching Machine would make a great gift this year.




     The batter controlled pitching machine is perfect for anyone trying to improve their batting average or just wants to play at hitting the ball.  The batter operates the pitching machine from the bat's wireless transmitter to practice hitting a plastic ball.  All you have to do is press the button on the bat's handgrip and it signals the machine to throw a ball.  This helps to give the batter control over when the ball is pitched.  If you prefer to swing your own bat there is an automatic mode that throws a pitch every 8 seconds.  There is a red light on the machine that also lights up to let hitters know a pitch is on is way.  It will pitch up to 25 feet.  I will adjust to throw at one of three gentle arcs and can also toss pop-ups for fielding practice.  It comes with five plastic balls and does require four D batteries as well as one 9-volt battery.  It is meant for ages 5 and up.
   

     I am so excited for Jayden to get this.  He is my little sports guy.  He loves anything sports related.  He is always wanting us to pitch him a ball so he can bat.  With this batting machine Jayden can play all he wants.  He won't have to wait for us to play.  This batter controlled pitching machine also comes with a lifetime guarantee.  If for any reason your not happy then Hammacher Schlemmer will return or exchange it.


     I am really happy with my choice and know it will be a wonderful gift for my son and many other kids out there.  But I still can't help to look around and see all that Hammacher Schlemmer has to offer.  A few of the items that I considered and still have on my wish list are the instant badminton courts which would be great fun for the whole family, the double Belgium waffle maker, patio furniture and more.  Hammacher Schlemmer has a great selection of items to fit the interests of everyone on your holiday shopping list.
