EXECUTION


  • Set the M2 machine at home plate (Atec Secondary Logo) with fielders positioned in the infield.
  • Using real baseballs, set top wheel speed at 6-7 and bottom wheel at 2-3 to simulate medium speed ground ball.
  • Work on ground ball fundamentals; to best simulate live batting, set up the machine at waist level using a ATEC caddypod.
