Baseball is often considered a gentleman's game, as players typically partake in little physical contact and must cover up dirty jerseys with cummerbunds. Suit up for respectable recreation with today's Groupon to Extra Innings in Woburn. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a one-hour hitting-tunnel rental (a $40 value).
- For $45, you get 10 training sessions (a $250 value).
Extra Innings houses more than 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor training space in which baseball players can improve their hitting skills and compete in a controlled environment year-round. Each of Extra Innings' four multiuse hitting tunnels is set up for a classic one-hour showdown between man and machine, pitcher and hitter, or umpire and rambunctious father. Each tunnel equips players with L-screens, pitching mounds, adjustable pitching machines, and scores of practice balls. Batters can practice in the tunnel with personal pitchers, or they can disguise the pitching machine as a Cy Young Award winner and watch it ignore requests for autographs.
Alternatively, adults and athletes can hone fundamental baseball skills and develop home run-robbing muscles through specialized training with CATZ expert coaches, In each one-hour session, the personal skipper will tailor the practice to the player's needs, and the ever-evolving curriculum is designed to keep athletes engaged while covering risky maneuvers such as stealing bases and mixing them with acids. Patrons can consult the CATZ schedule to find an optimum time to swat stitched circles.
No matter the weather outside, the conditions are always right at Extra Innings, a 15,000 square foot indoor baseball and softball training facility. The facility includes four batting and pitching tunnels, each of which is 70 feet in length and equipped with an adjustable pitching machine, an L-screen for live batting practice, and a pitching mound. If players want more help, they can turn to Extra Innings' instructors, many of whom are former or current professional players and college all-stars. These experts use a uniform step-by-step teaching system to help students develop their swings, improve their fielding, and learn to only exclaim "I got it!" if they're about to catch a fly ball or have just been told a joke. For a break, players can visit an on-site pro-shop full of name-brand gear, or they can even arrange a shindig in the party area to celebrate birthdays and special victories.
