Questions to Ask When Purchasing a Batting Cage

Practicing for the baseball season is an essential part of being successful. To aid in the practice, you may look to purchase an indoor batting cage for your kids. Having the proper setup is necessary for safety purposes and to get the most effective use out of the equipment. There are several types of cages and setups you can make for your home or backyard. The following are questions to ask yourself before you decide to purchase a baseball batting cage.

  • Where will the location of the batting cage be?
    Indoor and outdoor cages will be setup differently. There are also considerations to make based on whether this is a professional or backyard batting cage. This will determine the equipment you need to purchase as well as any additional safety accessories.

  • Should I use metal cable or rope for netting?
    If you don't plan on tearing down and setting up the cage frequently, a metal cable net may be the best option. This will be sturdier and should last longer than a rope net. A rope net is easier to take apart and assemble if you intend to do that on a regular basis.

  • Do I need a pitching machine?
    A pitching machine may be useful no matter what your setup. A harness should be purchased to hold the machine inside the cage. If you have somebody to throw the ball, you can save money by not purchasing a machine for your cage. For a live pitcher, you should buy an l-net to protect the pitcher.

    "This is an excellent training facility for baseball, fastpitch softball and slowpitch softball. Owner and staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the sports. The facility is clean with both Jugs and Master Pitching Machine Iron Mikes. Open 7 days a week pretty much year round. Business also sells sports equipment and training aids. Highly recommended. ..."

    Operators of batting cages provide a few services for their customers. Some batting cages are contained indoors; others are outdoors. Some are within private sports clubs, while others are public and invite anyone to come play. They may feature mini golf, arcades, and food, to provide an all-around fun experience. Some batting cage companies offer regular promotions and discounts, which softball and baseball players can take advantage of. This may involve a free game, or entitle the bearer to an ice cream cone.

    Helmets, bats, and other types of equipment are available for public use. Cages should lock and feature safety mechanisms for batters while hitting the ball. Some batting cages are strictly training facilities for serious baseball players to practice their swing, while others are purely for recreation. Visiting a batting cage facility should begin with a phone call to inquire about hours of operation. Outdoor cages are subject to weather conditions, as well.

    Company reps can also give out directions and other pertinent information, such as rates. A visit to the batting cage website can also help customers, as they can garner the information themselves. Many times, they'll find a coupon that they can download and print.

    Owners of batting cages also provide regular service and maintenance of the actual cages, plus repair of the netting, pitching machine, and other game equipment. They buy their batting cage equipment from wholesale dealers or retail sports stores. These stores may sell panels, frames, padding, and auto feeders. Some also sell bases, accessories, custom models, and commercial batting cages meant for major league use. Many minor and major leaguers need to continually work on their swing, and on homerun training in particular.

    Using batting cages for practice, such as hitting the ball or working on strength and speed, is a useful technique.
