Catering to sluggers of all skill levels, the six batting cages at Legends Batting Cages utilize an arsenal of ABC brand pitching machines to set the stage for one-man home-run derbies. Each orb-ejecting contraption flings hollow-core McGregor balls, which fly further than regular baseballs and spare bats from dents and embarrassing off-key clinks. Pitch speeds range from 30 to 55 mph for ages 5–9, to 40 to 90 mph for ages 10 and older, topping out at 90 mph in a cage suited for professional-level players. Athletes can fuel up while on deck with a soft drink and hot dog crowned with ketchup, mustard, and relish-flavored Big League Chew.
Up to 12 bat-wielders can take turns whacking homers during a one-hour auxiliary batting cage rental. Practice hitting technique with the aid of a five-position brush tee, or speed-hone your swing with a Hurricane Category 4 batting trainer. Players can master the mechanics of the swing and improve hand-eye coordination with a Hit-A-Way swing trainer in between swigs of soda. While Legends Batting Cages provides batting helmets and bats, hitters are still encouraged to bring their own. Everyone should also don a pair of batting gloves (not provided) to improve their grip and cover up the cheat sheet of Yogi Berra quotes written on their palm.
