Brickyard Cages’ indoor facility dedicates more than 8,800 square feet to the task of improving sluggers' orb-smashing abilities. After arming themselves with a bat made of wood, aluminum, or lacquered papyrus scrolls, guests enter one of six oversize cages and mercilessly swing at robot-tossed balls. Brickyard's modern pitching machines are capable of launching baseballs at a variety of speeds, and can also produce curveballs, sliders, knuckleballs, and batter-taunting loop-the-loops. Hop into cages number two or three¬—both of which are equipped with softball machines¬—to prepare for an upcoming softball showdown or perfect a world-changing grapefruit-juicing method.
The Yard is a state-of-the-art baseball training facility featuring multiple, full-length indoor batting cages with machines that hurl genuine, seam-laden baseballs. To abbreviate the ballistic learning curve, cages are outfitted with The Grid technology, which tracks the ball’s exit speed and provides a visual chart of where each hit would land if the cage had no walls or cruel, cruel gravity. A true trainer’s tool, The Grid emits constant feedback about changes in swing habits as well as up-to-date ratings against previous batters in the same swinging echelon.
This 8,000-square-foot facility houses five indoor batting areas to train baseball beaters on customized pitching machines capable of launching fast balls and curve balls at speeds of 25 to 90 mph, faster than the speed of black light moving toward a felt Don Mattingly. Each cage provides pop-fly pilots with helmets, bats, and baseballs. Hardball Sports Academy also includes two cages equipped for live pitching with L-screens that protect the delicate exoskeletons of warm-blooded lobbers.
