$25 for $50 Worth of Batting-Cage Use
Hit the batting cages and choose from 60-minute ($45), 30-minute ($25), and 15-minute ($15) intervals. The facilities are automatic, meaning you won’t have to feed the machine, which pitches the balls at speeds beginning at 40 mph and up to a blistering 95 mph heater.
Astoria Sports Complex
The family-run Astoria Sports Complex offers batting cages and indoor soccer, and has one of the largest fitness centers around. The facility got its start more than 30 years ago, when owner Steve Poliseno converted an abandoned ice house, purchased at auction, into the gigantic sports complex it is today. The most recent addition to the facility is a gigantic, Olympic-sized swimming pool, where kids can take lessons and prepare to be the Model U.N. delegate from Atlantis.
