Babe Ruth was nicknamed "The Colossus of Trout" because his skills on the field derived from summers spent fishing the old-fashioned way––with a baseball bat and shallow water. Earn an epithet of your own with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one hour of batting cage use (a $23 value) at Home Run Stadium in Mesa.
Home Run Stadium has prevailed as one of the largest high-dome batting cages in Arizona for more than two decades, housing eight baseball and six softball cages. For a full hour, sluggers can face off against pitching machines that deliver high-speed cheddar spheres or slow, more subtly fragrant gouda gobs (35–85 mph). Nocturnal guests can wait out the unforgiving glare of the sun and use one of 10 lighted cages, and short shortstops can perfect their swing in the tee-ball area designated for little-league hopefuls. Swing for the scoreboards on Jupiter as fans watch while noshing on concessions from the adobe-colored benches outside of the cages.
- We played all sorts of sports in our younger days, but when it came to baseball, strikeout was our middle name. That's until Daddy took us to Main Street, Mesa just west of Gilbert Road to this batting range. – Phoenix New Times
- It's a great place to practice or just get out and look silly! The set-up is good, and the people working there are always friendly and helpful. – Amanda S., Insider Pages
