Frequently asked questions
What’s the point of the CleanFuego Overweight (8oz)?
While 5¼oz is the weight of a regulation baseball, we also engineered the CleanFuego Overweight (8oz) to help players get a better feel for the baseball. The CleanFuego Overweight is also a great alternative to the leather weighted baseballs that are used in throwing programs.
Should I change my arm slot to throw CleanFuego more efficiently?
NO!! CleanFuego can be thrown from all slots.
Is CleanFuego only for pitchers?
Can I throw CleanFuego into a wall?
You can... but we wouldn’t recommend it. CleanFuego is incredibly durable because it's a training tool. As such, it might cause damage to the wall. We recommend throwing CleanFuego with a partner.
Should I throw CleanFuego with a partner or into a net?
We recommend throwing CleanFuego during your warm-up routine with a teammate or partner.
How far should I throw CleanFuego?
The distance you throw CleanFuego depends entirely up to the player and/or coach. We recommend no further than 70 feet; however, some players use CleanFuego throughout their entire long-toss program. This is very difficult though, and should be done only at the athletes own discretion!
How do I know if I'm using CleanFuego correctly?
HIDE THE SIDES! That's the foundation of CleanFuego. When you throw CleanFuego from your normal arm slot, you don't want to see the flat sides of the ball while it’s in flight. If CleanFuego wobbles in flight, it's your visual cue that something was off with your throw.
What age can players start training with CleanFuego?
We recommend CleanFuego to ages 13 and up. When a player no longer holds the baseball with a three-finger grip, it's possible to start training with CleanFuego.
Who can use CleanFuego?
