Batting Cages

Baseball & Softball Practice

Let’s talk about Practice!  The great thing about Baseball and Softball is that there is no size requirement.  You can be great at the sport no matter how big or small you are.  But in order to be great, you must Practice!  Some people say Baseball/Softball is the toughest sport to play because of the multiple skill requirements of hitting, fielding, throwing and catching.  You need continuous repetition in order to master these skills.  It can be as simple as having a catch with your child on a daily basis.  Throw and catch 100 balls each day with them, you will be amazed at the improvement after a few weeks. 

 

At the Hitting Academy, we have multiple batting cages in order to practice your swings, improve your hand/eye coordination and most importantly, build your confidence.  We recommend taking 300 swings per week in order to help improve your hitting skills.  Each batting cage round at The Hitting Academy is 150 pitches and we can adjust the speeds from 35mph up to 75mph.  From a parents perspective, hitting in the batting cages is the most efficient way to get your child’s work in without chasing balls all over a field or killing your arm trying to pitch 150 times.  If you’re looking to improve you child’s skills, come and visit us at our indoor facility.  We have everything available to help your child achieve success on the field.  And remember, keep on Practicing!

Cricket

At The Hitting Academy, we use Iron Mike pitching machines for our automated batting cages.  We love these machines because it’s the closest simulation to real pitching that a batter can see. 

But what is also great about these pitching machines is that they can bounce the pitches to accommodate Cricket players. 

Yes…Cricket! 

Cricket is a very popular sport in our area and we have many Cricket players that come in to practice their swings off of the Iron Mike pitching machines. 

The speeds range from 40mph up to 75mph.  We use the same leather balls that a baseball player would hit and we can adjust the bounce depending on your preference.  If you are a Cricket player looking to get in some additional practice, come and check out our indoor facility.
