With all that’s been going on this year, even America’s pastime faced a large setback as a major health crisis led to a severely shortened season. The idea of a summer without baseball was unthinkable and then came the revised schedule which severely cut the number of games to be played. Even worse, we couldn’t even be there in the stands!
Keeping baseball going this year
At least we have some options available to allow us to enjoy some baseball anyway. Those who have cable can watch the games, but there is nothing better than actually being outside and listening to the crack as the bat makes contact with that ball. For the more personal experience, we can visit the local batting cages and swing at that ball ourselves.
Batting cages are convenient and flexible
Batting cages are great for practice when it’s not practical or possible to be out there on the field. Even better you can have both outdoor and indoor batting cages so inclement weather doesn’t have to be a deterrent to practice or fun.
A batting cage allows you to better your skills through repetition, strengthen your core, and practice targeting that bat’s sweet spot over and over again especially if you’ve got an appropriate placement target in the cage. A good batting cage requires a strong frame, resilient netting (there are different types available) and a good ground surface on which to practice. This is a perfect use for artificial turf as it is very helpful in allowing the player to keep his footing and traction while perfecting his skills.
Batting cage installation
If you already have a turf field – indoor or outdoor – and want to add a batting cage to it, it’s relatively easy to do. If you’re lucky enough to have the space at your own home, you can build one there as well.
Turf Prep has the best materials and planning skills to help you plan and build that batting cage. We also provide maintenance service and cleaning for your turf to make sure it is in top shape for your athletes – pro or otherwise.
The other great thing about having a batting cage available is that it can be customized so that you can also use it for running and stretching exercises and swinging those other sticks around – your golf clubs. Go ahead and practice that swing!
