Japanese batting centers
Hello everyone, im new here and have a question. I saw you guys have very nice battingcenters with the screen in front of it on youtube. Anyone knows which brand the pitching machines are and who manufactures the screen?

Anyone, please????

Thanks a lot this is exactly what i mean!!
But it is not really helping cause there is no english subs on the site, only japanese...

I want to start my one batting center in europe. I've searched the internet for pitching machines and accessoires. Ive found some manufacturers in usa and i want to compare it with japanese manufacturers.

Are there any more in japan????

huum... sounds great

another are...

"Virtual Pitching Machine"
NisshinSPM co.
"synchronized ball & video, 4 arbitrary speed settings"

"Virtual Batting Machine"
Trust co.
"uses real NPB players, or some cartoon character"
"synchronized ball & video, 4 arbitrary speed settings"

It seems to me there's no difference between these 3 company
they are mix of "planner","adviser","constructor"

the followings are machine manufacturer or reseller, but "without screen"

"Pitcher Reproducing(?) Machine"
Gyro Giken co.
"this machine reproduces all variety of pitches, include GyroBall"

Taguchi Sports (reseller)
SSK(Baseball Equipments)'s "Pitching Machine",

SSK's "another equipments"

and more... I found one display manufacturer, but it's not a screen (projector)

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
