Because baseball games are no longer used to settle land disputes and damages from horse collisions, they’ve become the battleground for deciding which U.S. city will be the first to move to the moon. Practice batting for your hometown with today's Groupon: for $9, you get 20 batting range tokens (a $25 value) for Kiwanis Park Batting Range in Tempe.
Saunter up to Kiwanis Park Batting Range and use the 20 tokens toward a variety of machines and cages, designed for baseballers of all skill levels. Ten lighted cages and eight cages that contain dual pitching machines provide multifaceted ball-whacking delight. Many machines can heave stitched spheres at speeds ranging from 30–75 m.p.h from 45 feet. Six slow pitch softball machines check larger targets, while a T-ball area is available for youngsters unable to face the wrath of the regular cages. Bats and helmets are available for use, and the only age requirement is that batters be able to hold and swing a bat without assistance (click here for the full list of rules). In between bat-based bashes, swing by the general concession area to snag some refueling soda, candy, or other energy titillating snack.
