USA-Made and Built to Last
Our Valle Shields are entirely USA-made and manufactured in the city of Rochester, New York. Creating jobs in the community is an integral part of who we are as a company.
Valle Shield L
US Pat. 9,782,649
US Patent Pending
Every part of the Valle Shield’s Patented design was developed to ensure it is the safest longest lasting hitting screen on the market. The front hanging net eliminates virtually all ricochets back at the hitter and keeps any baseball or softball from hitting the metal frame and damaging it. More then 8 MLB teams have chosen to remove their expensive L Screen and replace it with the Valle Shield.
The Overhead Protector
This Overhead Protector is an additional accessory to the Valle Shield. It is designed to protect a ball from careening off the top of the batting cage and striking a coach in the head. It extends out more then 3 feet from the frame so a coach can comfortably be positioned under it for safety.
Valle Shield FT (Front Toss Model)
US Pat. 9,782,649
Valle Shield FT is our Patented front toss model. This model will have the frame netted with #60 netting, wheels for easy portability, and the patented front hanging net, made with commercial heavy duty #96 net, along with rope border, chain with corner adapters and springs. This model does not come with the side wing, or accessories.
The Side Protector
The Side Protector accessory will keep a coach safe from any ricochet when feeding a pitching machine when a batted ball is hit directly back at the machine and often times, ricochets at the coach. Will also protect a batted ball that may ricochet off the batting cage pole. Easy to put on and take off the frame. No tools needed!
The Ball Holder
The Ball Holder accessory holds up to 65 baseballs and 45 softballs for easy access and the coaches convenience. No hassle of bending over to get balls out of a bucket. Positioned right in front of the coach and can slide it from left to right to have it perfect for a lefty or righty throwing coach. No tools needed. Easy on and easy off!
The Valle Shield is the most versatile hitting screen I've ever been around. The ability to switch from different functions, makes it unlike anything else I've ever seen. No balls coming back at you. It's amazing.Steve SingletonMinnesota Twins Minor League Hitting Coach
The thing I love about Valle Shield Screen is it protects me and the hitter. Even in tight closed cages everyone is safe. I also don't have to worry when feeding a machine because the side screen attachment protects my face.Frank ManechinoMiami Marlins Hitting Coach
Well built and useful for all levels of competition.
When we went to Ft. Myers to play the Twins, I was able to use one of your screens to get the boys some work in before ball practice. I felt very comfortable behind the screen and the visibility was great. I could finally see what the hitter was doing after flipping or throwing a ball. Also, the net on top gave me a sense of security that I rarely have in a batting cage. I wish all of our affiliates had your screens, they are made with great quality, easy to move around and are as practical as it comes.Howie ClarkAssistant MLB Hitting Coach
One major worry I have always had as a coach is players getting hurt from balls that ricochet off L-screens when doing soft toss and taking batting practice. Many players have been hit with several taking shots to the head and face area. Hitters can now get their work in without fear of injury and really focus on their swing. This screen is easy to move, strong, and durable. One of the best inventions ever for baseball. We absolutely love these screens.Kevin Seitzer Atlanta Braves Hitting Coach
The Valle Shield is the most protective and maneuverable pitching screen on the market. I have used the Valle Shield for 2 months with coaches throwing & coaches feeding pitching machines from behind and the protection is the best I have seen in my 40+ years of coaching. I would encourage all teams & coaches to consider purchasing The Shield!Coach Mike RobertsCotuit Kettleers Head Coach, Cape Cod League and Consultant Chicago Cubs
I highly recommend the Valle Shield hitting screen. I have been hit more than once by a ricochet off a conventional L screen. Since using the Valle Shield, I can now focus on my swing and not my safety. I highly recommend it to all ages.Albert Almora Jr.Chicago Cubs - 2016 World Series Champs
Three in One
The Shield’s innovative design allows for multiple functions. It is a Front-Toss Screen, an L- Screen and a Catch (or Sock) Net. By essentially having these three screens in one, say goodbye to all the clutter in your batting cage!
Built to Last
The Valle Shield provides the best warranty of any hitting screen on the market. It has a three year limited warranty on the frame, with a one year limited warranty on the wing, rear wheels, front hanging net, and all accessories. When used as directed, the Shield’s unique design will keep any ball from directly hitting the frame, and as a result may last many years beyond the warranty. The front hanging net, that is virtually tension free and absorbs the impact of the ball as the main component of the Shield, is recommended to be replaced once a year. This recommendation is based on daily use, and if the usage is considerably less, it may last much longer then the warranty and in that case should be visually inspected on a regular basis and replaced as needed.
