What You'll Get
Practice is important in every athletic pursuit, whether it's a batter hitting ball after ball in a batting cage or a pitcher smashing window after window up and down the block. Aim for perfection with today's Groupon to Gameday Academy. Choose between the following options:
- For $87, you get five hours of batting cage rental (a $175 value).
- For $65, you get a four-day kids' baseball day-camp session (age 6–14), good for one of the following date ranges: June 13–16, June 27–30, or July 11–14 (a $130 value).
Currently located at 734 Napton Avenue in Valley Park, the batting cages will be moving to an expanded 22,000-square-foot facility on Langley Avenue in the St. Louis Sports Center as of June 1.
Gameday’s spacious chateau of sports in Valley Park and its soon-to-be-open air-conditioned facility in St. Louis situate stick-swingers within the friendly confines of an L-screen protected cage and in the line of fire of a Jugs pitching machine. Players can use their five hours over any portion of the six months following purchase, meaning they can choose to train steadily throughout the season or pull an all-day cram session for the batting portion of the LSAT.
The Beat the Heat Summer Camp series, which also takes place in the new St. Louis location, teaches the basics to kids aspiring to become the next Albert Pujols or Cy Young. Gameday Academy's lineup of instructors boasts former college and professional baseballers teaming up to support and inspire kids as they field whiffle balls, dash through home-run derbies, and practice fundamentally sound high-five form. Each session stretches from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday.
