Just like flying squirrels, baseball players are adept at gliding across grassy fields, munching on seeds, and dodging bats in mid-air. Approach the finesse of furrier athletes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get 20 batting-cage tokens at San Jose Batting Cages (a $20 value). Tokens can be used all at once or in several visits.
San Jose Batting Cages takes the field with baseball and softball pitching machines that fire three different speeds at batters, helping to isolate their swing mechanics and form without the pressures of game day. After players pick up 20 batting-cage tokens, which lob 10 pitches per token, they suit up with new helmets and bats and step into a cage lined with the burly visages of life-size stars. Baseball machines pop out pitches at 45, 55, or 65 miles per hour, while the softball shooter lobs 50 mph, 60 mph, and soft-toss balls, making for training more consistent than swinging at falling hail with a rolled-up magazine.
