Since 1993, JP Longball has reverberated with the cracks and pings of bats. Located near the University of San Diego, the indoor batting center features five batting cages?including one with a dirt batting surface, three that throw baseball and fast pitch softball, and one that throws baseball and slow pitch softball. Arm-action pitching machines test baseball and softball players with different speeds, and a curveball machine bends balls over the plate without relying on whispered incantations from Randy Johnson. Not all of JP Longball's staff is mechanized, however. The facility also retains an all-star lineup of accomplished coaches, who share their wisdom with ballplayers during personalized hitting, pitching, and fielding lessons.

With 8,800 square feet of dedicated baseball- and softball-practice space, Brickyard Cages gives ballplayers room to improve bat speed and train their eyes. Sluggers choose from six batting cage tunnels outfitted with Iron Mike pitching machines, which can be adjusted by speed and any pitch type that doesn't require human saliva. A staff of experienced players and instructors presides over every crack of the bat and slap of the catcher's mitt, offering year-round lessons to groups and individuals.
