Key Terms Relating to Batting Cages

When you or your kids are looking to practice for baseball season, a batting cage may be a useful purchase. You will need different equipment based on whether it is intended to be an indoor or outdoor cage. You may wish to purchase high quality materials for an indoor cage to prevent damage to your property. If you are a coach, you may wish to setup a cage at the high school for your players to utilize in between practices. The following are key terms you should be familiar with before making a batting cage purchase.

  • Netting - Rope or metal cable that encloses the batting cage. A metal cable net will last longer, but a rope net will be easier to tear down and set up.
  • Backstop - An addition that can be bought to protect the net behind the batter in the cage. Backstops can be made of different material including vinyl.
  • Pitching Machine - A machine that throws balls as a pitching simulation. Check to see how fast the machine is able to pitch before making a purchase. This is not required for a batting cage if you have somebody to manually pitch.
  • Harness - Can hold the pitching machine inside the batting cage. If you don't have a pitching machine, you will not need a harness. You may be able to buy a cheap harness for your batting cage.
  • L-Net - This is a net that is used to protect the pitcher in a batting cage. If there is a person throwing the baseball, the net prevents injuries from a fast moving ball.

    Need to practice your baseball swing? Head to some nearby batting cages to learn the basics or refine your skill. These enclosed cages allow baseball and softball players to practice swinging and hitting. They're often located in sports facilities, at public or private golf courses, or within recreational centers. Often times, other amenities are nearby, such as ice cream stands, go-karts, sports stores, mini golf, and arcades. This provides a one-stop-shop for entertainment for people of all ages. The actual batting cage is typically made of netting or chain link, with a safe area for the batter to stand. He or she sets the timers as to the type and speed of ball desired. At set intervals, balls spit out of a pitching machine at the other end, sending the ball flying toward the batter, who attempts to hit it. The floor is usually sloped, so that the balls all flow back into the staging area. Batting cages are entirely contained to prevent any stray balls from exiting the area. Many sports lovers come to batting cages to try their hand at homeruns, train for games, and perfect their swing. Hitting the ball is sometimes harder than it looks, but since the balls come one after the other, the batter has many chances to hit them. This game can be played indoors or outdoors, but it doesn't usually involve any other components of baseball or softball, such as running the bases. Batting cages are most often coin operated, and helmets and bats are provided, although you can bring your own equipment. Sometimes coaches bring their teams to batting cages to practice hitting the ball, and other times, parents bring their children to learn the art. It's a fun recreational experience for all ages, from teens to adults.
