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 $20, you get a punch card for five large buckets of batting cage balls at Next Level Baseball (a $40 value).
Next Level Baseball's four full-length batting cages combine to form a stomping ground for baseball and softball sluggers in training. Grownup grand slammers or little league swingers can step up to the plate and smack through five buckets of balls, whether they arrive as spitballs flung from the hand of a friend or teammate or approach in a saliva-less form from the mouth of an Iron Mike professional pitching machine. The wide design of Next Level Baseball’s batting cages makes it easy to track hits off the bat and judge each a dinker or an upper-decker, and the ability to use the punch card over multiple visits means players can avoid developing a bad case of baseball elbow from too much swinging.
Founded in 2004 by professional scouts for the Milwaukee Brewers, Next Level Baseball has trained various Major Leaguers and stacks its staff roster with experienced coaches. Highlights of the training facilities include a pro shop, arcade game room, and closed circuit televisions in the lobby, which entertain curious spectators with views of the batting cage areas from five minutes in the future.
Next Level Baseball
Founded in 2004 by a pair of Brewers scouts and the CEO of Titus Sports Academy, the brains behind Next Level Baseball staff their indoor facility—a one-stop shop with four full-length batting cages and dirt pitching mound—with skilled instructors from the professional and collegiate baseball circuits. With private coaching and group clinics in all areas, from pitching and hitting to spotting angels in the outfield, Next Level’s instructors shepherd beginning players down the road to competitive play at intermediate and professional levels. The pro shop’s selection of high-end gear from ROGO and Rawlings matches each player’s equipment to their burgeoning skill set, which they can flaunt after lessons by nimbly pitching quarters into the arcade’s blinking battalion of games.
