The Pinch Hitter is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. It is the signature kart of Mario (Baseball) debuting in the 2021 Los Angeles Tour. The kart is a small buggy with a hood resembling a baseball helmet, a seat resembling a baseball glove, and exhaust pipes resembling baseball bats. It uses white-rimmed versions of the Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and the emblem appears at the front on the kart. The Pinch Hitter increases the duration of Slipstream boosts and the amount of points awarded for performing Slipstreams.

A white variant called the Cleanup Hitter also appears, and like the Pinch Hitter, it has the High-End classification.
