East Beach Batting Cages puts batters to the test with 11 automated pitchers, seven designed to sling baseballs and four that specialize in chucking softballs. Each token forces a mechanical moundsman to spit out 19 balls at selected velocities—the baseball machines start at 35 miles per hour and top out at 70 miles per hour, or the exact speed Babe Ruth reached when he raced Secretariat in the 1932 World Series. Three of the softball hurlers function at slow speeds, and one pitches its stitched leather orbs at a faster pace. The batting-practice facility, which is located within walking distance of Stearns Wharf, keeps sluggers armed for their cage fights by supplying a number of helmets and bats.
East Beach Batting Cages
Just two blocks from East Beach and down the way from Stearns Wharf, the crack of bats is a fitting addition to the soundtrack of the nearby crashing waves. Each day throughout the week, baseball and softball fans pop in at East Beach Batting Cages to get in a workout, perfect their swing, or shake off the rust from too much time between batting sessions. At the outdoor facility, eight baseball pitching machines wing balls at batters at 35–80 mph, and six softball pitching machines lob a choice of slow or fast pitches. After working up a hunger, patrons can indulge at East Beach Tacos, located onsite, or take a stroll along the beach to see how the seals play their own version of baseball.
