Since opening in 1993, On-Deck Baseball Academy has granted batters and fielders of all ages and skill sets an immersive environment in which to focus and improve on their all-around games. Batters haul their bats into one of seven machine cages, including six for baseball and one for softball, where they can safely practice full-bore chops, sac bunts, and line drives at teammates who might be stealing their Big League Chew. Each cage is clean and well lit, so that players can clearly see the balls being hurled into the strike zone by the Iron Mike pitching machines. The machines can be calibrated to the batter’s desired speed and height, or turned off altogether in favor of a live pitcher firing fastballs and winking at the catcher from behind an L-screen.

On-Deck Baseball Academy

For nearly two decades, On-Deck Baseball Academy has been prepping ballplayers for life on the diamond with guidance from veteran instructors and training in versatile drill cages. After adjusting to the player's height and preferred pitching speed, Iron Mike pitching machines hurl fastballs down center plate; for a more authentic game-day experience, players can test their skill against a human pitcher in the live cage.

Hitting isn’t the only skill taught at the sprawling baseball complex. Inside the 120-foot toss cage, catchers can practice throwing out base runners stealing second or brushing back batters who get too close to their personal space. In one-on-one instructional sessions, former players devote their undivided attention to students, teaching them fundamentals and correcting their pitching and fielding techniques. These lessons take place in skill-development cages outfitted with movable mounds, pitching targets, and L-screen protection.
