Sluggers without access to pitching machines spend the off-season swinging at mosquitoes and batting away UFOs from the New Mexico skyline. Swing at a reliable pitch with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a 30-minute batting cage rental (a $20 value) and 60 pitches from an Iron Mike pitching machine (a $10 value) at The Cages (a $30 total value) in Brandon.
The Cages' four indoor batting chambers house baseball and softball players ages 11 and up as they hone their swings on pitches from tireless mechanical arms. Multiple batters may share the 30-minute cage-rental session and afterward crack maple against an additional 60 fastballs served by the adjustable Iron Mike machines. The automated bicep slings orbs between 45 and 80 miles per hour in a customizable strike zone, inviting bunts, line drives, and soaring fruit salads. The Cages provide baseballs and softballs, but sluggers caddy their own lumber, helmets, and batting gloves to practice.
