The Valle Shield
Every part of The Valle Shield’s Patented design was developed to ensure it is the safest longest lasting hitting screen on the market. The patented front hanging net design eliminates virtually all ricochets back at the hitter and keeps any baseball or softball from hitting the metal frame and damaging it. No more dangerous ricochets off the batting cage ceiling or side poles! In just over 1 year , there are 26 MLB teams that have chosen to remove their conventional L-Screen and replace it with the Valle Shield.
The Valle Shield with its patented design, which contains a “Front Hanging Net”, was developed to do what no other hitting screen in baseball or softball has ever accomplished. The Valle Shield keeps the batter SAFE! The old-style conventional L Screens were designed to keep the pitcher from a batted ball hit back up the middle at them. Baseball & Softball, and how we practice hitting, has evolved and much of our batting practice is at a close-up range. As a result of this change, there is an increase in the risk of balls ricocheting off a standard L Screen at high speeds, thus putting the batter in danger. The only answer to this serious issue is to eliminate any dangerous ricochet. The patented Valle Shield design reduces this risk when doing front toss, or at any close range within 25 ft, of any harmful, high velocity ricochet back towards a hitter, to almost zero.
The fear the pitcher has, always wondering when may the first ball that gets hit back directly at the net protecting him, will break through and hit him is gone when using the Valle Shield.
NOTE: For safety, the Front Hanging Net should be replaced yearly.
Here are just some of the 25 MLB teams presently using our Shield, at their big league stadiums:
LA Dodgers, NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Washington Nationals, Chicago Cubs, NY Mets, Atlanta Braves, and others!
