The Personal Pitcher Brand was started by my friend Chris Richard’s Dad. Chris was only 14 years old at the time. He had aspirations of being a pro baseball player just like most kids his age. He begged his Dad to get him a pitching machine that he could use at home. Unfortunately, batting cages in the area were either inaccessible or too expensive. He checked every local sporting goods store and online retailer but they only had heavy, expensive machines. These type of pitching machines would not work well in the backyard.
Out of desperation, Chris’ Dad started tinkering around with some motors, batteries, and light weight rubber wheels in his garage. After many days, he came up with the original Personal Pitcher mini wiffle ball pitching machine. It was inexpensive, lightweight, and its small size made it tougher to hit than baseball. In fact, it worked so well, it took little 14 year old Chris and turned him into a Major League hitter. The first Major League pitch Chris ever saw, he hit for a home run!
After Chris’ playing days he has taken over the Personal Pitcher family business. He has allowed YouGoProBaseball to sell the Personal Pitcher Pro and many of the other great Personal Pitcher products like the Mini Web Gloves and the Skinny Barrel Gro Bats. If you have any questions about any of the Personal Pitcher Products on this page, please give us a call and we’d be happy to help. 407-627-6997
