Jug Sports Inc
JUGS Sports, Inc., has hit a home run since introducing the first baseball-pitching machine capable of throwing a curve ball several decades ago. Today, the Oregon-based company is the world's leading producer of baseball-pitching machines, softball-pitching machines, batting cages, radar guns, and other sports-related practice equipment trusted by professional and amateur athletes, as well as coaches, worldwide.
The company has expanded beyond its traditional focus on baseball and softball, developing ball-throwing systems for football, soccer, tennis, field hockey, and cricket. Not only does every Major League Baseball team use JUGS machines, every National Football League team and the professional cricket teams in India and Australia all have JUGS throwing machines.
