Home Run Stadium has prevailed as one of the largest high-dome batting cages in Arizona for more than two decades, housing eight baseball and six softball cages. For a full hour, sluggers can face off against pitching machines that deliver high-speed cheddar spheres or slow, more subtly fragrant gouda gobs (35–85 mph). Nocturnal guests can wait out the unforgiving glare of the sun and use one of 10 lighted cages, and short shortstops can perfect their swing in the tee-ball area designated for little-league hopefuls. Swing for the scoreboards on Jupiter as fans watch while noshing on concessions from the adobe-colored benches outside of the cages.
Normally the den of the vacationing Tucson Toros, Hi Corbett Field throws open its doors to a rotating cast of minor-league and wood bat-wielding college teams for a summer of sportsmanship under the lights. On Thirsty Thursday, spectators stake out real estate behind home plate for bouts between visiting sluggers before decamping to the concession stands for $1 beers from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The stadium’s savvy staff augments on-field action with various theme nights throughout the summer, enlivening each game with special events such as the June 16 early Father’s Day celebration, the June 30 Jersey Shore bash, or the July 7 Census Taker Appreciation Night.
After joining the National League's West Division in 1998, it only took four seasons for the Arizona Diamondbacks to become World Series champions, making them the fastest expansion team to win it all in MLB history. Since then, the D-backs faithful continue to fill the stands of Chase Field, a 48,000-seat retractable-roof ballpark constructed for the team's inaugural season. The widest LED board in Major League Baseball replays crucial saves and high-flying hits in 136'x46' of high-definition glory, and just beyond the fence in right-center field, a swimming pool allows fans armed with foam noodles to whack opponents' home runs back into play. During the fourth inning of every game, kids can interact with D. Baxter the Bobcat in his upper-concourse Den equipped with slides and batting cages.

Established in 2001, Arizona World of Baseball has been helping baseball players, softball aficionados, and lumberjacks develop fluid techniques that pack more pop than a case of Coke, depending on location. AWB’s baseball lessons are designed for budding baseballers between the ages of five and 18 and offer an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of hitting fastballs, throwing changeups, or corralling swarms of wasps in one's mitt. Each lesson takes place inside a 20,000-square-foot facility and focuses on developing the proper balance, mental approach, hand path, vision, and sunflower-seed snacking while also providing drills that can be practiced at home.
AZ Grip-N-Rip Batting Cages provides a space for aspiring athletes to hone all the basics of their game. In fully-enclosed batting cages, hitters train both eyes and muscles to deal with consistent-speed pitches as the machines at the other end of the cage spit out either baseballs or softballs. Meanwhile, at soft toss stations or regulation-sized clay mounds, pitchers practice the subtle handholds that produce spin or the full body power behind a fastball. Nine coaches?many with Major League experience playing for teams like the Atlanta Braves, the Chicago White Sox, and the New York Mets?provide pointers and training regimens that really help students improve their game, running one-on-one lessons, group classes, and even baseball camps, where students learn important skills, like how to build a fire by rubbing two bats together.
