Three baseball cages and three softball cages housed in the indoor Batters Box facility hurl their best stuff into the strike zone so that baseball players can polish their cuts. Various settings enable all levels to improve, serving slower pitches to younger and less-experienced players and transforming into hecklers so experienced players can master their game faces. Batter’s Box also employs a couple of decorated instructors in Jerry Hairston Sr., a 14-year major leaguer and father to two current pros, and Autumn Champion, a former standout at the University of Arizona and current record holder for the fourth-highest softball batting average in the nation.
Funtasticks Family Fun Park entices visitors of all ages with abundant play areas along with racing, riding, and sporty attractions. Guests can test their aim by precisely putting through one of two 18-hole miniature golf courses, take aim in Tucson's largest laser tag arena, or hitting softball or baseball homers in a batting cage that launches orbs between 40 and 70 mph from an accusatory foam pointer finger.
Electric bumper boats come equipped with water blasters for squirt-attacks against other seafarers, and go-karts navigate a racetrack's lengthy stretches and curves. The video arcade's plentitude of games rewards players who can later collect prizes, and kiddie land sequesters a bouncy castle, rookie go-kart track, and mini roller coaster geared to younger attendees. Funtasticks accommodates organized group outings and birthday parties with an extensive selection of packages.
The sight of a medieval castle surrounded by tall cacti may seem anachronistic at first, but it's hard to question the image when one is trying to putt a mini golf ball into a grassy hole off the circulating paddles of a windmill. It's whimsical moments like this that make Golf N’ Stuff's name feel understated. Beyond the two lush 18-hole mini golf courses that draw year-round visitors, the entertainment center boasts go-karts, bumper boats, and more than 100 arcade games. Batting cages let both kids and adults perfect their swings. Visitors can refuel on hot dogs, Dippin' Dots ice cream, and soda at the snack bar.
A baseball and softball academy can boast about the numbers that define it, such as having 30,000 square feet of indoor space, more than 10 pitching machines, and private and team instruction offered seven days a week—all of which Centerfield Baseball & Softball Academy has. But there's probably no truer testament to the quality of an academy than the success of its alumni. On this count, Centerfield truly shines.
Since opening in 2003, it has minted diamond stars who have been drafted by the Yankees, Marlins, Indians, Braves, and a host of other pro clubs, as well as trained high school and college standouts in both softball and baseball. New recruits follow in the footsteps of these past champions by practicing the academy's teaching methods to become all stars at hitting and fielding.

title: AZ Grip-N-Rip Batting Cages
html_text: AZ Grip-N-Rip Batting Cages provides a space for aspiring athletes to hone all the basics of their game. In fully-enclosed batting cages, hitters
train both eyes and muscles to deal with consistent-speed pitches as the machines at the other end of the cage spit out either baseballs or softballs. Meanwhile, at soft toss stations or regulation-sized clay mounds, pitchers practice the subtle handholds that produce spin or the full body power behind a fastball. Nine coaches—many with Major League experience playing for teams like the Atlanta Braves, the Chicago White Sox, and the New York Mets—provide pointers and training regimens that really help students improve their game, running one-on-one lessons,
group classes, and even baseball camps, where students learn important skills, like how to build a fire by rubbing two bats together.
