Sports played with spheres are easier to master than rectangular sports, such as Rubik's cubing and throwing bricks into windows. Circle fun with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a 30-minute batting cage session at Hardball Sports Academy (up to a $25 value).
This 8,000-square-foot facility houses five indoor batting areas to train baseball beaters on customized pitching machines capable of launching fast balls and curve balls at speeds of 25 to 90 mph, faster than the speed of black light moving toward a felt Don Mattingly. Each cage provides pop-fly pilots with helmets, bats, and baseballs. Hardball Sports Academy also includes two cages equipped for live pitching with L-screens that protect the delicate exoskeletons of warm-blooded lobbers.
