The Batting Cages

The cornerstone of our Baseball and Softball training is our Batting Cages. We have 3 separate batting stalls where batters hit into a common open area. Each batting stall is equipped with a baseball and softball pitching machine for a total of 10 pitching machines. Each machine is set at a specific speed. The machines are positioned about 42′ from home plate.

The cages are activated by tokens which can be purchased for $2.00 at the front desk. Each token is good for 20 pitches and works in any cage, for baseball or softball. Helmets and bats are available or you can bring your own. HELMETS MUST BE WORN IN THE CAGES.

The slowest machines are on the left and the speeds increase as you move left to right. Our cages are equipped with the softer balls so they will not damage those pressurized expensive bats. Wood bats are welcome.

The cages are open to the public on a walk-in basis and are available for rental in 30 minute blocks. When a cage is rented, it is not available to the public.

Batting Cage Etiquette:

  • If people are waiting in line use only 2 tokens at a time then allow others to take their turn.
  • Kick or toss balls back after each round (Don’t throw or hit).
  • Wait your turn.
  • hen people are waiting in line, no soft toss or instruction in the cage. Let others use it.

Batting Cage Safety:

  • Helmets must be worn.
  • Only one person in cage when machine is active.
  • No switch hitting or crossing over plate when machine is active.
  • Don’t go past the red line painted on the carpet.
  • No practice swings outside the cage.
  • Pay Attention.
  • No one under 6 years old can use the cages.

Baseball Cages


Each of the 5 baseball pitching machines has an elevation control panel so the hitter can adjust the height of the pitch from inside the stall. The speeds for the pitching machines can accommodate players from Little League to Adults and are set as follows

Cage 1: 30 mph
Cage 2: 45 mph
Cage 3: 60 mph (83 mph 60’ 6” equivalent)

Since the machines are set about 42’ from home plate, the reaction time equivalent speeds at 60’ 6” are listed.

Softball Cages


There is 1 slow pitch softball cages and 2 fast pitch cages. The softball cages do not have height adjustment mechanisms. The softball cages speeds are:

Cage 1: Slow-pitch (10-12’ arc)
Cage 2: 35 mph
Cage 3: 45 mph
