Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon to Florida Strike Zone in Oviedo. Choose between the following options:
- For $16, you get a one-hour batting-cage rental (a $35 value).
- For $45, you get a one-hour entire facility rental (a $95 value).
At Florida Strike Zone, aspiring baseball and softball stars can sharpen their swings with indoor at-bats that eliminate environmental interference. A one-hour batting-cage rental invites diamond experts to hone their hacks and retinal radar on three Iron Mike MP-4 machines capable of 35–90 mph pitch speeds, and the Juggs softball machine digitally dials in speed settings for slow- or fast-pitch practice. Divide and conquer the cages with a one-hour entire facility rental that allows up to 18 players to split off into starting lineups based on batting average or autographing ability. Free WiFi, DirecTV, a Wii gaming system, and music help hitters get into the zone, and a workout and warm-up station loosens lumberjacking limbs.
Though not included with this Groupon, Florida Strike Zone also offers expert instruction through camps, clinics, and professional training sessions. Eliminate holes from threadbare swings or reduce defensive deficiencies under the tutelage of deliciously seasoned pros, such as former major-leaguer Jose Santiago and World Series Women’s Softball champion Cindy Corrado.
