Better baseball and softball pitching starts from the ground up. The Stride Right pitching mat can be used as a baseball and fast-pitch softball training aid. It helps players and coaches find and identify areas in the stance and pitching stride that can be adjusted and improved. Once you’ve found success in your foundational footwork, the patented grid training system helps players repeatedly practice that successful throwing movement. Our softball/baseball pitch training mats provide instant visual feedback allowing easy instruction for baseball and fast-pitch softball.
The Advanced Pitcher pitching training mat is 10 feet by 4 feet and comes complete with a regulation pitching rubber. There is a grid system running all the way down the mat that act as a power-line and a pitching stride distance trainer. It is made out of tough Nylon fiber and has a durable rubber backing, similar to the traditional turf pitching mats with a softer feel. We recommend only throwing in turf shoes, not baseball/softball cleats or spikes.
The pitching lanes will line up with our Advanced & Elite Hitting Mats acting as a throwing target for pitchers.
For beginning players, this mat is perfect for understanding the importance of a consistent stance and stride length. It can then help challenge pitchers to increase their vertical stride distance.
For more experienced players, our mats can be used as a way to measure current successes and make minor adjustments leading to better training and faster more accurate throws.
The inability to master fundamental skills is the primary reason kids leave the game. At Stride Right Mats, our goal is to create valuable baseball and softball training aids allowing kids to learn and improve their skills giving them greater success and keeping them in the game longer.
We are constantly evaluating and improving our baseball and softball training equipment. We are working to bring more pitching nets, pitching targets and pitching mounds. We stand by our products and will do our best to create and deliver innovative training aids.
