Without the physical protection of batting cages, innumerable practice baseballs would be lost to the cold depths of space every spring. Contain your pop-ups with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a Fun Pass, good for one round of mini golf (up to a $7 value), one medium-size driving-range bucket (up to a $7 value), six batting-cage tokens (a $5 value), and one large soda (a $1.50 value), at All American Sports Center in North Ridgeville (up to a $20.50 total value).
All American Sports Center exalts the virtues of physical activity with skill-honing and fun-having facilities. The driving range fields 20 heated tees and 40 seasonal grass tees, completely illuminated for late-night drivers trying to make good on their vows to put a ball on the moon in this decade. On the smaller scale, an 18-hole mini-golf course provides a suitable challenge in the art of ground-based golfing. Those looking to practice their horizontal swings can deposit their six tokens—good for 78 swings—at the nine batting cages, which can be set to fast- or slow-pitch baseballs or softballs.
A large soda avails itself to thirsty athletes at the All Star Cafe, which is open on the weekends in April and every day come May. Competitors looking to face each other on the battlefield of bits can meet in the arcade, in which only the strong of will and heavy of quarter may tread.
All American Sports Center
From a bird's-eye view, the emerald expanse of All American Sports Center is unmistakably devoted to the sports of golf and baseball. No less than 20 heated tees and 40 seasonal grass tees line the driving range, allowing players to keep shooting for the horizon even after the sun sets and the towering lampposts light up the field. For short games, the center also features a 10,000-square-foot putting green as well as a chipping green complete with hazards such as sand bunkers and kiddie pools full of jury summons. The 18-hole miniature golf course encourages visitors to unwind as they putt past decorative waterfalls and rivers. At the dugout, guests can switch gears to baseball or softball, taking up bats to turn away the wrath of variable-speed pitching machines.
