Watching baseball evokes memories of sweet home-run swings, empty peanut shells mistakenly left at the stadium, and why you should not have parked your car on the field before batting practice. Practice creating your own baseball nostalgia with today's Groupon: for $12, you get 30 minutes of unlimited batting-cage use at Hit & Run Baseball in Sanford (a $25 value).
Stretching across 12,000 square feet of indoor practice space furnished with fine equipment, Hit & Run's facilities help hone swing mechanics of little leaguers, high-school athletes, and beer-league beanballers thanks to a slew of pitching machines and training areas. Individual cage rentals allow a full 30 minutes of clobbering inside any of Hit & Run's seven regulation-sized batting cages, which stretch 70 feet in length and 14 feet in height to better follow the ball's trajectory and house sporting whales. In addition to its enclosed cages, the facility boasts four batting-tee and soft-toss stations, along with both baseball and softball machines. The Iron Mike and Jugs Super machines, meanwhile, allow helmeted hackers to zero in on fast-pitch spheres.
