The Derek Jeter Hurricane Baseball Hitting Machine - Tip for Adjusting Height

Good morning. When adjusting the height of your new Hurricane Baseball Trainer, there are several things you must remember.
  • When making height adjustments, never grab the machine's axle. Always lift or lower the top component by the top head.
  • If you change your height you may have to readjust the tension of your powerbands. Make sure the powerbands are tight enough to return the ball after contact.
  • It is better to practice hitting the ball at all locations. Hitting must pratice hitting the low strike because pitchers are going to try and keep the ball down.
  • Arm strength and bat speed can be increased faster and easier when the batter pactices hitting the high settings.

Have a great day, Nick
