Baseball’s storied textbook swing is only effective when swingers keep their eyes on the ball and use the entire length of the book by opening its cover. Use the power of words with today's Groupon: for $12, you get 30 minutes in a batting cage at Brickyard Cages (a $24 value).
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.
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.
