Unique Perspective: Muhl Tech 9 Hole Pitching Target
At Unique Sports it is important for us to get hands on experience with many of the products we sell. I recently had an opportunity to use the Muhl Tech 9 Hole Pitch Target and can confidently say that it has helped improve my pitching mechanics and pitch location.
As a collegiate pitcher, I’m always looking for ways to improve my performance and one aspect of my game I needed to improve was accuracy. When pitching to a traditional catcher it is often hard to figure out exactly where the pitch finishes, and how the pitch moved.
The Muhl Tech 9 Hole Pitch target provided a solution for me. I was able to have a coach standing directly beside me, watching my mechanics in ways there were never possible before.
I was also able to pitch to a spot and know immediately if I hit the spot I was aiming for. For example, I wanted to work on my “two strike slider” to right hander hitters. I focus on hitting the lower left green target in the Muhl Tech 9 Hole Pitch Target and then repeat the mechanics and release point once I lock in on that target. It also allows me to work my “two strike change-up” to left hander hitters. I focus on the lower right green target and then repeat the mechanics and release point once I lock in on that target.
The 9 Hole Pitching Target was a perfect training aid to help me focus on my pitch location and mechanics. The two pitches I was hoping to work on have improved tremendously now that I can see instant results with the Pitching Target. I’m looking forward to the upcoming season to see how my hard work paid off!
