What You'll Get
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 for your role in the next space-race with today's Groupon to Laguna Beach Batting Cages. Choose from the following options:
For $35, you get 35 batting-cage tokens (525 pitches; a $70 value).
For $39, you get an introductory batting lesson (an $80 value).
For $75, you get three, one-hour sessions of team cage rental (a $150 value).
Schooling hitters with its Iron Mike professional pitching machines, training cages, and certified instructors, the Laguna Beach hitting emporium helps sharpen the swings of players of all ages. All machines within the outdoor, mesh-shielded facility pelt backstops at a distance of 46 feet from home plate–allowing batters to hone their timing–and are capable of simulating real-life pitching speeds between 35 and 85 mph, while catering to left handers, right handers, and no handers alike.
Those seeking ball-bearing guidance may enlist the swing services of Laguna Beach's Epstein-certified instructor, Jon Studer, for a one-on-one session covering all aspects of hitting mechanics. Alternately, coaches overseeing teams of 7-year-old all-stars or John McEnroe's cranky softballing twin may opt for the three, one-hour cage rental sessions—which include unlimited hitting, as well as tactical training for arguing with umps about blown calls at fifth base.

- Laguna Beach Batting Cages & Baseball Academy, where the pinging sound of homers and boo-yahing of middle-aged men battling it out against the Iron Mike Professional Pitching Machines and reliving their high school dreams echo through the canyon. – _ OC Weekly_
