Finally! An Entry Level Batting Cage!
Baseball and softball families with a limited budget or backyard space should strongly consider our new Xtender Backyard Batting Cage. There has never been a more reasonably priced entry-level batting cage. The rest that I've found are just plain cheap!
I've often said that any player who is fortunate enough to have some sort of backyard cage and pitching machine and could hit every day simply by walking out the back door of his house could not help but become a better hitter!
There is an old baseball saying that if a player can hit, the coach will find a place for him to play!
It kind of tells you how hitters are built. To oversimplify:
- You learn the fundamentals & proper mechanics of a solid baseball swing. (an ongoing process that never stops)
- You swing properly over and over and over.
- Fun & success just seems to follow!
The key for many families has always been how to afford or where to put a large batting cage in the backyard. If this sounds like you or your family, you won't find a more affordable solution for inexpensive baseball fun...right out your backdoor! If this is fun for your player,she will just naturally improve quicker!
This Backyard Batting Cage really is easy enough for anyone to install and use!
When combined with our Heater Pitching Machine, this may be a great solution for you.
A Note About Batting Cage Length
Cage Length Doesn't Correlate With Success!
I've said it a million times. The length of a batting cage will never determine future success of any fastpitch hitter. Learning the proper mechanics of the swing and repeating it correctly over and over is ultimately what matters and what keeps players on the path to next level softball not to mention having the most fun...which tends to lead a player into staying longer in this great game.
This game is about quickness. Shorten the distance between pitching machine and your hitter and you will reduce the reaction time.and save the extra room in your backyard!
The 24' Batting Cage
We recommend that the 24' cage should be used only in conjunction with a wheel-type pitching machine, such as our Heater Backyard. If you are using the 24' cage for "short-toss drills" you will need to use a Pitcher's L Screen like you may have seen in a baseball training facility. For safety reasons, we do NOT recommend typical batting practice drills with cages of shorter length. You will need to consider a longer cage, such as our 48' or 72' versions or another choice from our line of batting cages.
