Granada FAQs

 

  1. Why practice with poly balls?
    • When used with a two wheel machine, the poly ball is the absolute number one practice ball. This combo is the best replication of the pitcher in addition to the fact that it has the greatest and well earned reputation for eliminating multi-tasking. The high school and college coaches with the most career wins have used this system (Granada) exclusively. Recent laboratory studies have shown that nothing else comes close.

 

  1. What kind of pitches does the Granada pitching machine pitch?
    • All Granada Pitching Machines pitch fast balls, drops, left handed and right handed curves and the pitches in-between except the Granada III. The Granada III pitches 40 mile an hour fast balls.

 

  1. How many cuts a day should a person get?
    • 100 to 1000 cuts per day. The more cuts the better you internalize.

 

  1. What is the distance between the batter and the Granada Pitching Machine?
    • 28 to 32 feet for the curve ball is optimum. 20 to 40 for the Granada III depending on the skill of the batter.

  1. Can I pitch other balls in the Granada pitching machine?
    • Hardballs and dimple balls will damage the machine and void the warranty. The light flight ball will work but the poly ball gives you the truest pitch.
