What You'll Get
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 $30, you get a 30-minute private baseball lesson at The Baseball Center NYC on West 74th Street on the Upper West Side (a $60 value).
The Baseball Center NYC, Manhattan’s only full-service indoor baseball facility, supplies youth, teenage, and adult baseball and softball players with access to 15,000 square feet of batting cages, pitching simulators, and fielding areas. During a private lesson, professionals instruct athletes on how to strengthen hitting, pitching, catching, fielding, and flying techniques.
By combining breathing, visualization, and concentration techniques, hitters will learn to watch balls connect to their bats and disappear on impact, and base runners will learn the art of hitting the inside corner of the bag. Additionally, The Baseball Center NYC helps all levels of players set personal goals, whether it's maintaining a .300 batting average, pitching a 20-win season, or growing a full beard.
