One of  the biggest advantages with the Jugs Lite-Flite pitching machine is that the the pitcher will not get fatigued during those extended hitting sessions.

The use of a pitching machine is considered by many to be an essential tool in developing the swing and being a better hitter. The Jugs Lite-Flite pitching machine will help strengthen the skills of any player.

Affordable, Fun, and Dependable

Many manufacturers offer different types of pitching machines at different price levels that serve as the choice of many players in fulfilling their varying needs. Your budget is crucial in choosing and purchasing a pitching machine.

Jugs Lite-Flite Pitching Machine Review

The Jugs Lite-Flite Pitching Machine comes as a useful and lightweight tool that delivers the pitches at a reasonable price. This is great because it helps in honing the swings of novice hitters without breaking the bank.

This pitching machine is best to be used inside the gym, on any field, or even in the backyard. Hitting has never been this great and affordable than with the JUGS Lite-Flite Machine.

This is a product designed for mastering hitting difficult breaking pitches, fastballs and change ups. It also promises lots of fun and strikes, leaving the player satisfied with their improved hitting game.

The JUGS Lite-Flite Machine is composed of a cast steel and comes along with a new two year guarantee. It features a 1/8 HP and 1.3 ampere motor. This pitching machine also operates on a 110 AC or through the use of an optional Battery Pack.

Versatility and Features

The JUGS Lite-Flite Pitching Machine is the best choice among hitters. Even though this is a pitching machine not intended for the big-leagues, it is designed for throwing lite baseballs, eleven or twelve-inch lite softballs and Jugs Bulldog softballs and baseballs.

With the Jugs softballs and baseballs, young hitters are able to learn hitting the breaking pitches without being anxious about bone breaks or bruises from being hit by a pitch.

Although it may not be intended for Major League hitters, that does not mean that this pitching machine never prepares you for bigger leagues. One of the biggest obstacles facing a hitter moving up through the different leagues is learning how to hit curve balls and sliders.

This machine will allow the hitter to see as many curve balls and sliders as it takes to get comfortable hitting them.

This machine is still able to present a wide array of movements that can be adjusted for different pitches. These pitches can range from sliders and curve balls, to fastballs and change ups.

In addition to this, the pitching machine and its base casting can be adjusted three-hundred sixty degrees. This allows for the good simulation of ground balls, pop-ups, and fly balls. The ability to simulate fly balls and grounders is an awesome advantage for players interested in practicing their defense in the backyard, or anywhere else.

There is no longer a need to worry about which side of the plate you bat from. Lite-Flite is capable of throwing both right-and left-handed pitches.

Another great feature is the delivery system that allows you to see the ball almost like it’s coming out of the pitchers hand. You can easily adjust the legs higher for baseball and lower for softball to give you the desired release point.

There is also an easy-to-change design including “switch and play knobs”, which allow you to easily and quickly change between baseball and softball. The weight and feel of the Lite-Flite balls give you the same feel as you would get when making contact with real baseballs and softballs.

The speed can be adjusted for a convenient and enjoyable hitting session with the turn of a simple dial. The speed range can be set anywhere from around 30 to 50 miles per hour. However, by simply moving the machine closer or further away from the plate, you can easily simulate speeds of 70 MPH or more!

With the purchase of this machine, you will be provided with two separate storage bags. The smaller bag is perfect for the legs, while the other is for the head component. These bags are of good quality and assist in the transportation of the machine.

In addition, the easy to read and follow instruction manual make set up, breakdown, and operation a breeze. Putting it together and leaving it all set up in the backyard is possible. If you decide to do this, you will need to get a cover for the head, as it’s not suppose to get too wet.

The Jugs Lite-Flite is perfectly designed and is able to function both outdoors and indoors. Weighing in at only 35 pounds, it’s a breeze to bring with you wherever you’re going. This pitching machine is number one in the hearts of players and parents for its many varied features and convenience.

Go Cordless!

In addition, the Jugs Lite-Flite Pitching Machine is made to go along with the use of a rechargeable battery setJugs Lite-Flite pitching machine review - battery packThe battery pack is being sold on a separate basis. This battery can operate the machine for almost three hours of continuous run time.

Designed for complete recharge in four hours, this battery pack is completed with a thirty-two inch cord. Other accessories include shoulder straps and a nylon carrying casing.

This is one of my favorite features, as most of our practices are on the field and finding a power source is nearly impossible.


The Jugs Lite-Flite pitching machine is recommended by previous users for its safety, affordability, and dependability. It is inexpensive, reliable, and is safe for children.There is no need to be worried about being hit by the balls.

Even though there are some cheaper options of pitching machines, the Lite Flite Pitching Machine is the best to choose from! Repeat customers and recommendations are a good sign of a high quality product.

Jugs Lite-Flite pitching machine review – Any drawbacks?

The only minor drawback about this product is that it uses Lite-Flite balls and not real baseballs.Jugs Lite-Flite pitching machine reviewI actually consider this an advantage because getting hit with them does not hurt nearly as much as getting hit with a real baseball or softball. They are still great to be used in batting, hitting and anything else you want to do with them.

And as mentioned earlier, you get the same feel as you would when making contact with a real ball. It only comes with 4 balls, so you may want to consider purchasing extra baseballs or softballs.

Jugs Lite-Flite Pitching Machine Review – The Verdict

In my opinion, the Jugs Lite Flite Pitching Machine is simply the best pitching machine to purchase on the market. There is nothing that compares to its convenience for awesome practice and great value.

This is a perfect training device for both advanced and novice baseball and softball players. This is also a great pitching machine for kids and adults.

    You made me think back to my batting practice in the 70’s. It was a steel post with horizontal bar that had a spring or something. My dad set it in an old tire and poured concrete in it to make a solid base and I hit that thing over and over.

    One day, I showed up at practice and knocked that little ball out of the ballpark over and over and over. Everyone was surprised at the change in my hitting. It was called practice and hand eye coordination.

    The Jugs pitching machine is a whole lot better but it is the same concept. I appreciate you taking me back in time to my youth.

    1. Jeremy Post author

      That is awesome Rick!

      I remember me and friends drilling holes in old baseballs and using rope to tie them around a tree and hit it back and forth with bats…Anything to improve hand eye coordination!

      When kids started throwing curve balls, that’s when I ran into a little trouble.

      One of my favorite things with the Jugs Lite – Flite is the ability to practice hitting the braking pitches. It gives the kids a valuable opportunity to see the curve ball on a consistent basis, without the fear of getting hit.

      This thing is super fun and is always giving valuable training. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your story!

    Wow Jeremy! That was a great review! I think that you covered every question that anyone would have. You were very thorough and on top of everything!
    This machine sounds like something that would be a lot of fun whether or not you are in to playing on a team or just messing around in the backyard. It sounds like a great investment for the serious player as well as for a group of kids that like to have a good time. Talk about a coach’s dream. Getting to practice so many things at once with a machine that weighs in at less than 40 pounds. Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge.

    I wish I would have had one of these machines at my disposal when I was in High School! I like the review and how you broke up the sections in an easy to follow fashion. I think in a few years when my kids are old enough I will defiantly have to consider purchasing them something along these lines. Has this personally helped your baseball career?

    1. Jeremy Post author

      Hey Thorpe!
      I’m glad you found the review of the Jugs Lite-Flite helpful.
      This will be the perfect pitching machine for your kids when they are ready. Being able to stand in the batters box without the fear of being hurt by the ball will allow them to quickly gain confidence.
      I never had the opportunity to use one during my playing days, but watching how quickly my own kids and players have adjusted to the advanced pitches that the Jugs can throw, I sure wish I would of had access to one back then.

    Dude, that looks really cool! I wish I had one of those growing up, I might be a better batter lol.

    I was thinking they would be through the roof expensive but just under 400 dollars really isn’t too bad, plus I’m sure whoever is using it is getting a lot of use out of it 🙂

    Awesome review, thanks!

      Hey Matrix!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the Jugs Lite-Flite review.
      The Jugs is definitely a great tool that will help to improve your batting skills and it’s never to late to get started 🙂
      When compared to other pitching machines costing upwards of $1,000 or more, the Jugs is really a no-brainer!
      You will get years and years of use from this machine and the possibilities are endless. And the best part is; They are all fun!!
      Thanks for stopping by Matrix and please let me know if I can help with anything else ~Jeremy

    Hey Jeremy!

    Very well said and thorough. Left me with no real questions to be asked honestly. I played baseball only when I was younger but this site would be great for someone like my little brother or my cousin. I also like how the very first part of the page is all the small details regarding the product. Very nice keep it up!

  6. Aiden

    Hey Jeremy,

    Great article! I’m from New Zealand where we don’t really play baseball so I have no idea about the sport.

    This article has opened my eyes a bit and it’s great to see they are making pitching machines for the newbies and that they also offer a safer way to learn (e.g. no bruising etc).

    1. Jeremy Post author

      Thank you Aiden!

      I really think that you will love the game of baseball. Here are a couple of links to articles I wrote to help get you started.


      Adding a pitching machine like the Jugs Lite-Flite to your practice sessions will go a long way towards not only improving skills, but also toward building confidence. And most importantly, it’s just plain FUN!

      And your right about the no bruising. While I don’t want my players being overly comfortable while in the batters box, I do like them to be able to learn how to hit curves without having to worry too much about getting hit with the ball.

      If you ever need a hand, or have any questions about the great game of baseball, please let me know and I will be happy to help.

      Thanks for stopping by ~Jeremy

    I am somewhat familiar with baseball, but I did not know there were pitching machines. It makes sense to think that in order to sharpen their skills, both amateur and pro baseball players need to have intensive and extensive practice. The Jugs Lite-Flite Pitching machine seems to be the perfect partner for the ones who want to learn how to deal with advanced pitches such as curve balls and sliders. Amazing!

    1. Jeremy Post author

      Hey Hilda!

      There are definitely tons of pitching machines to choose from nowadays. The Jugs Lite-Flite happens to be my favorite. I did a lot of research before deciding on this one and I’m very glad that I did. We are not only able to practice hitting the advanced pitches like curve balls and sliders like you mentioned, with a quick adjustment, we are able to get that practice from a simulated right handed, or left handed pitcher!

      And my favorite feature with the Lite-Flite, is the ability to go cordless! This has allowed us to set up batting practice almost anywhere.

      Pro and amateur players will definitely benefit from all the great features of this machine.

      Thanks for dropping by Hilda, and if you have any questions, or need any advice, please let me know. I’m always happy to help. ~Jeremy

    It’s a great review. Exhaustive and thorough. I like it.

    To be honest with you, I have never played baseball. We have cricket here. But my cousins play baseball and they were looking for a pitching machine recently. I will send them your way! 😀

    Thanks for the share. Keep up the good work.

  13. Steve

    I would love to have a pitching machine of my own. I go to the batting cages once in a while but you don’t get many pitches for the money.

    1. Jeremy Post author

      I hear you loud and clear Steve! I have 4 kids and going to the cages can turn into a taking out a loan situation pretty quickly. I figure 15-20 trips to the cages has already paid for the pitching machine and it’s a heck of a lot more fun! Thanks for stopping by. ~Jeremy
