I recently bought this Louisville Slugger product (the “Blue Flame”) on Amazon and I have to say it’s pretty cool!
I chose it because it does not require power (no cords, batteries, etc), it is spring operated.
I will say that when I set this thing up, the main plastic part shattered after only 5 uses… but, I contacted the vendor who sold it and they were awesome and immediately shipped me a new part and the machine has been working great since.
I’ve used this machine at a few parks around the city and people are always coming up asking “What the heck it that thing?” and find it cool and interesting. So this thing is fun to use and a good way to meet new people!
Oh, yeah, and my kids are getting to be better at hitting.
