Much like the New Deal, free refills, and ownership of the moon, baseball helped make America the great nation it is today. Salute our national pastime with today’s Groupon to The Hitting Zone in Bartlett. Choose between the following options:

  • For $12, you get 35 batting-cage tokens (a $25 value).
  • For $22, you get 70 batting-cage tokens (a $50 value).

Tokens cannot be used during All-U-Can-Hit hours on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The Hitting Zone hosts trainers and teams within 16,000 square feet of cages and indoor field, driving home essential baseball and softball skills or providing lively entertainment for casual bat handlers. Each token earns 12 pitches from the automated machines in the batting cages, meaning customers can have anywhere from 420 to 840 balls sent careening toward themselves, friends, or cardboard cutouts of Roy Rogers.

Five baseball or fast-pitch softball cages satiate club-swinging appetites, and the single slow-pitch arc softball cage hones more deliberate follow-throughs. The crack of ball against bat resounds throughout the high-ceilinged space, echoing off the stadiumesque red brick and cement along with the metallic gum chewing of robot pitchers. The Hitting Zone also provides a selection of complimentary helmets and bats, though hitters are free to bring equipment from home.

The Hitting Zone

The thwack of bats hitting balls squarely on their stitched faces echoes throughout The Hitting Zone, a 16,000-square-foot indoor baseball and softball training center. There, skilled trainers draw on their own experiences in the field to help batters achieve that satisfying sound during private and group lessons. Coach Rick DeHart shares what he learned while playing for the Montreal Expos and the Kansas City Royals, and Chris Wilmot’s lessons are shaped by his time as a first baseman for the Cougars. Other trainers share stories of college ball and coaching high-school students while they demonstrate pro pitching and hitting techniques in six turfed training tunnels.

Budding swingers can also apply their newly learned skills in five baseball and fast-pitch-softball cages equipped with ATEC automatic pitching machines that aspire to play for the Yankees one day. A 12-inch slow-pitch-arc softball cage also awaits batters, who can fuel their efforts with refreshments from nearby vending machines. In addition, The Hitting Zone also welcomes birthday celebrants inside a 24'x27' party room, where they can eat cake in between whacking balls and listing all of the Great Bambino’s nicknames in alphabetical order.
