Batting cages must be used regularly to prevent bored pitching machines from escaping to the carnival to throw pies and water balloons. Swing into the act with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a punch card for six 15-minute batting-cage sessions (a $60 value), two drinks (a $4 value), and a bag of popcorn (a $1 value) at Ultimate Baseball Academy.
One of the largest indoor baseball training facilities in the Midwest, Ultimate Baseball Academy keeps eager benchwarmers and seasoned sluggers in shape year-round. Its center, outfitted with a turf field, training tunnels, and batting cages, allows ample room for practicing victory high-fives and Babe Ruth impersonations. Grand slammers can sharpen their swings on one of four pitching machines, equipped with four speed settings for all ages and skill sets. After hitting one out of the metaphorical park, batters can refuel with a soda, popcorn, and the taste of glory. UBA’s staff of top coaches and instructors are also available for lessons and sideline heckling for future Olympians of all ages.
Ultimate Baseball Academy
Ultimate Baseball Academy’s bullpen of coaches and professional and college players enlightens their athletic students in all aspects of their sport across a 55,000-square-foot facility. Batting cages rattle with the metal-pinging or wood-cracking ricochets of fair and foul hits, with baseball cages capable of four speed settings spanning from 40 to 80 miles per hour for experienced players and radar-gun calibration. Twenty-four training tunnels, five pitching machines, and a 150’x150’ turf field set the stage for pedagogical sessions in techniques such as pitching, catching, hitting, and fielding, as well as training camps and clinics. The academy also organizes youth baseball and adult softball tournaments and leagues, pitting hopeful teams against each other in battles either to the top or to the top of the sportsmanship rankings.
