What Are The Settings?
This question is for those of you that have or use the Louisville Slugger Blue Flame Pitching Machine.

I just got one and I would like to know what are the 3 settings that you use for pitching slo-pitch softball?

Raise the pitch arm to the highest setting

Pull arm should be set at the lowest setting

Spring setting slowest, the setting closest to the tee.

Extra thoughts, replace the 3 inch stakes with 9 inch tent pegs, once you have the pitch location correct, tent pegs on either side of heel. Total 4 pegs.

Plenty of videos on Utube, expect 10-11' arc, with a new spring expect about 52-55' in distance.

I looked for a video on YouTube but didn't see anything about the settings for pitching a slow pitch softball.

When setting for popups change the spring load to the weakest setting.

I have found that setting the pull release arm at 5, the rise pitch arm at 2 and the foot spring setting at 1 give a 50-53 foot pitch with a pitch arch of about 8-10 feet.
