Baseball America Prospect Report

June 8, 2006
Compiled by Baseball America


Used daily by Major League Baseball® teams, the Wilson Hitting Streak is a fielding and batting-practice powerhouse. With a flip of the wrist, the machine's 270-degree rotating pitching head quickly switches between fastballs, curves, sliders, drops, risers and every breaking ball in the book--both left and right-handed. For fielding and catching, the Hitting Streak excels in line drives, fly balls, pop ups and balls in the dirt. It's sold fully assembled with a sturdy, detachable tripod and a copy of Jim Lefebvre's Baseball Comprehensive Training Program.
