It has always been said that baseball is a game of inches, and it is these inches around the plate that are so important to a pitcher. The Ultimate Home Plate will make kids understand how to pitch to batters and will allow them to see where the ball needs to be thrown to get batters out. The Ultimate Home Plate is a simple tool to use and emphasizes working the outside and inside corners of the plate. This training tool is ideal for all ages and is something that can be used as high as the Major Leagues, yet a dad can throw it down in the backyard. The orange edges are 5" wide on the top and 7" wide on the bottom front of the plate and are a visual target for the pitcher to see. The 5” orange edges and white part of the plate cover 2.5” of a traditional home plate and 2.5” off of a traditional home plate. The back part of the plate is to help position the catcher. The catcher is to center his or her body on the point of the white part of the plate giving the pitcher the ultimate target to throw to on either corner of the plate. This outstanding training tool is also perfect for fastpitch softball pitchers and catchers.
