Power Swing hones batting techniques with outdoor baseball and softball cages and an 11,000-square-foot indoor practice facility. Each token merits 16 pitches, granting plenty of practice or a way to unleash repressed rage over the cancellation of Cheers. Cudgel balls from one of the 10 baseball-pitching machines, or wield sticks against six slow-pitch and three fast-pitch softball apparatuses. Parents can lounge beneath the six televisions of the air-conditioned clubhouse, or pummel out a few hits themselves until their swing is as sharp as a studious thumbtack.
Encompassing an 11,000-square-foot indoor batting arena, an air-conditioned clubhouse filled with training videos, and an outdoor plot of screen-enclosed batting cages, Power Swing's facilities help train baseball and softball players of all ages and skill levels. Instructors train students in four private pitching tunnels and let them practice on a turf infield or field hits from regulation-size pitching mounds. Outside, players swing at four T-ball cages, or return machine-pitched volleys from 10 baseball pitchers and nine softball pitchers that launch balls and unwanted vases at up to 80 miles per hour. A team of coaches, many of them former athletes, can also help students hone pitching and hitting skills in private, semiprivate, and small-group lessons, and lead instructional clinics and athletic afterschool programs.
