A mini golfer's and baseball lover's paradise, The Perfect Swing boasts an automatic batting cage and an intricate, challenging mini golf course. Little linksmen choke up on the club to better navigate their golf balls through the winding, hard-to-master fairways of the 18-hole course. Putt over intervening streams and shoot around hairpin turns before switching ball bashing implements and heading over to the batting cage. With six tokens, batters take aim at 90 baseballs or soft balls, hurled at various speeds by pitching machines that taunt batters to charge the mound. Afterward, enjoy a hard-earned scoop of one of the 16 Gifford's hard-serve ice-cream flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, or soft-serve twist, which is ideal for cooling down panting tongues.
The Perfect Swing
Unlike an outdoor field, The Perfect Swing's more than 60,000 sq. ft. facility isn't ever affected by bad weather or movie crews shooting yet another inspiring comeback story. The sound of cracking bats and thudding balls fills the training space rain or shine year-round. Baseball and softball players face off against seven automatic pitching machines, which hurl balls at speeds between 35–70 miles per hour, while pitchers work their arms in 17 practice tunnels.
The Perfect Swing also offers four indoor turf fields for year-round baseball, softball, and soccer. Shoppers who are looking to stock up on softball and baseball equipment can visit the on-site store.
Athletes aren't left to swing and throw blindly, though. The Perfect Swing boasts a staff of more than 25 baseball and softball instructors, including many current and former professional players. During private and group instruction, these experts help students hone fundamental skills in areas such as hitting, pitching, catching, fielding, and agility. Instructors also lead outdoor baseball camps during the summer months.
