Batting-cage matches are a contest between man and robo-pitcher, whereas regular cage matches are a contest between man and larger, angrier, sweatier man. Opt for the baseball-oriented option with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get 20 minutes of batting-cage action (a $20 value) at Zuleta's Indoor Batting Cages Inc on South Cleveland Avenue in Fort Myers.
Zuleta’s Indoor Batting Cages are owned and operated by Julio Zuleta, a veteran ballplayer who boasts a 17-year career in not only the Minor and Major Leagues, but also in Nippon Professional Baseball and the World Baseball Classic. Seventy feet of astroturf separate future sluggers from their robotic pitchers in four cages delineated by black netting that keeps patrons safe from stray balls and the occasional giant monster mosquito. Bring your own bat (wooden, aluminum, or pygmy round-eared) or rent an aluminum bat for $1. Practice like the pros on the same type of machines most MLB players use to warm-up during spring training. Controllable pitching speeds from 25 to 85 mph are available to suit any ability level and can take both baseballs and softballs.
