Practicing for hours in the batting cage helps sharpen your swing, provides a safe haven from meat-tossing bleacher trolls, and prepares the public for the inevitability of a talented robot athlete overcoming the sport's flesh barrier. Square up your stance in a projectile-sausage-free environment with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a punch card for 30 rounds (a $48 value) in the batting cages at Fresno World of Baseball, located off Highway 41 across from Fashion Fair Mall. Each round comes with 20 pitches, and you can redeem your card on multiple visits.
The seasoned coaching crew behind Fresno World of Baseball has helped hone hacking slashes and correct poor batting form since 1999, opening their current clean, well-lit, and air-conditioned facility in 2007. They'll supervise your swing time inside any of their nine indoor batting cages. After approaching the plate, a machine with a mechanical arm and intimidating rusty sideburns will spit rawhide bullets at anywhere from 40 to 70 miles per hour, its lifelike delivery simulating in-game at-bats far better than traditional wheel-feeder machines or dolphin blowholes. Square off against softballs or baseballs, either with your own hickory stick and helmet or with weaponry borrowed from the friendly cashier. Budding national pastimers can also refine their stroke inside a whiffle-ball-tossing cage, making today's Groupon a fine family outing for all ages and skill levels.
Developing into a proficient baseball batter requires more than just thigh-high socks and a hatred of car windshields. Fresno World of Baseball aims to prove that a rock-solid work ethic is at the heart of every superstar. Use your powerful, precise cut to reverse the Santa Ana winds, perform emergency tree surgeries, and beat away irate roly-polys after a few cage matches at Fresno World of Baseball.
