The act of going to the batting cages is a safe and legal alternative to other methods of performance enhancement, including corking bats, stealing signs, or snorting Wheaties. Enjoy the practice of champions with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 30 rounds of 21 pitches each in the batting cages at Charlie Rose Baseball in Campbell (up to a $60 value).
Charlie Rose Baseball enables sluggers young and old to take a few cuts at spheres of all sorts, including slow-pitch softballs, fast-paced fastballs, and ever-elusive sinkers. In all, the facility boasts four cages, all bathing under strategically placed lights that support day and evening action. This Groupon provides a punch card worth a total of 630 pitches; each time the card is punched, Charlie Rose Baseball gives batters three 21-pitch tokens. For communal satisfaction, this punch card can be split among multiple batters, enabling entire Little League teams to get in on the action as they learn the finer points of patience and token-based economies.
Charlie Rose Baseball
In 1958, Charlie Rose opened his shop, aiming to become an equipment resource for baseball and softball coaches and players. The shop’s array of bats, gloves, and apparel equip players for the game with a variety of brands including Rawlings, Louisville Slugger, and Mizuno. Cutter C-Tack Endurance batting gloves create a nonslip grip and help protect hands from scorching line drives and hot potatoes. In honor of Charlie’s gift for repairing gloves, the shop offers clients a free lifetime conditioning program that ensures each glove outlasts an indefinite number of hard pitches.
The facility also houses four outdoor batting cages and three fast-pitch softball cages, which prepare batters for high-speed play and give them a chance to test out their new gear. Inside a fourth softball cage, a slow machine lobs easier pitches toward the plate. Patrons can visit during the day or at night to practice their swing under the glow of the facility's nighttime lighting.
