- Why practice with poly
- 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.
