The nuclear family, unlike the family powered by teamwork, spends its free time spinning around the same giant reactor. Reenergize your amusement with today's Groupon: for $5 you get three batting-cage tokens (a $6 value), a hot dog (a $2.50 value) or a slice of pizza (a $3.50 value), and a large soda (a $2.50 value) at Arena Softball (up to a $12 total value) in Roseville.
The indoor batting cages have six stations and 12 machines that can pitch out baseballs or slow- or fast-pitch softballs. Each cage is built in an "open" style, with only 10 feet of side netting and 17-foot ceilings. Batters can watch the trajectory of their hit balls without having to break through glass ceilings or engage net walls. Built-in speed and placement variations assure that come game time, heavy hitters don't expect uniform pitches from uniform-wearing automatons. After batting and fielding, replenish bat holders and base runners with a large soda and a slice of pizza or a hot dog.
