Valle Shield

$1,375.00

The patented design Valle Shield FT ( Front Toss Model),  was developed to do what no other hitting screen in baseball or softball has ever done, which is to keep the batter SAFE! The old style L Screens were provided to keep the pitcher from a batted ball hit back up the middle at them. As the game has evolved and how we practice hitting, with close up front toss, short distance batting practice in cages and on the field, the risk of balls ricocheting off an old fashion L Screen at high speeds is equally if not more dangerous because the hitter has no barrier to protect himself from this ricochet. The only answer to this serious issue is to eliminate any dangerous ricochet. The Valle Shield design reduces the possibly, when doing front toss, or at any close range within 25 ft, of any harmful, high velocity ricochet back towards a hitter, to almost zero.
The fear the pitcher has, always wondering when may the first ball that gets hit back directly at the net protecting him, will break through and hit him is gone when using the Valle Shield.

Valle Shield FT is our front toss model.

The Valle Shield Front Toss Model with its patent pending design was developed to do what no other hitting screen in baseball or softball has ever done, which is to keep the batter SAFE! The old style conventional L Screens were provided to keep the pitcher from a batted ball hit back up the middle at them. As the game has evolved and how we practice hitting, with close up front toss, short distance batting practice in cages and on the field, the risk of balls ricocheting off a standard  L Screen at high speeds is equally if not more dangerous because the hitter has no barrier to protect himself from this ricochet. The only answer to this serious issue is to eliminate any dangerous ricochet. The Valle Shield design reduces the possibly, when doing front toss, or at any close range within 25 ft, of any harmful, high velocity ricochet back towards a hitter, to almost zero.

Perfect for any cage that may already have a L Screen, but the need for safety for doing close up front toss is necessary to the coach and hitter.

“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.”
