Much like the New Deal, free refills, and ownership of the moon, baseball helped make America the great nation it is today. Salute our national pastime with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of batting-cage tokens at Sluggers Batting Cages. This Groupon can be used across multiple visits.
The chain-link barriers of Sluggers Batting Cages reverberate with the ricochets of baseballs and softballs launched from the bats of practicing pinch-hitters. Individual rounds ($2) pit players against 18 pitches from a machine almost as steely-hearted as snobby opposing teams in underdog sports films. Twenty-five-token packages ($32.50) let batters swing at baseballs fired at 40 mph–80 mph, with two fast-pitch and two slow-pitch cages for softball players.
Sluggers Batting Cages
Line drives whistle and skid across Sluggers Batting Cages, where hitters perfect their swings against machines that sling pitches toward the plate at 40–80 miles per hour. Rounds of 18 pitches keep bats hurdling consistently through the zone, including inside two fast-pitch and two slow-pitch softball cages. For one-on-one schooling, private lessons are available by appointment, and cage rentals let teams and coaches practice without the distractions of a regular field, such as rain puddles or the forlorn howls of hot-dog-vending spirits. Between rounds, batters can browse the onsite pro shop's equipment and apparel or fill their mitts with snacks hauled in from the concession stand.
