$21 for $40 Worth of Batting-Cage Tokens
Hitters can redeem their Groupon for blocks of time in the batting cage ($25 to $35 per half hour) or tokens, costing $2 for one, $10 for six, and $21 for 15. Each token is worth 18 pitches.
Each day, the cracks of bats connecting with fastballs and the smacks of baseballs arriving in leather mitts can be heard echoing throughout Hitters Hangout’s climate controlled indoor facility. The staff here encourages serious baseball and softball improvement within the facility’s three cages: a Major League cage for live batting practice, a Minor League cage outfitted with Iron Mike pitching machines, and a training tunnel for pitching, catching, and witnessing where mascots are kept during off-hours. The professional staff of instructors—which includes Orlando Palmeiro of the 2002 World Series champion Anaheim Angels, former Marlins catcher Jorge Fabregas, and Yuniesky Betancourt of the Brewers—pass along their insights on hitting, pitching, catching, and fielding during private and group lessons.
