Best Year-Round Batting Cage

Extra Innings

This complex is prettier than Grady Sizemore: 19,000 square feet of chain-link fence, synthetic turf, and sky-high ceiling. Walk-ins can swing away -- helmets and aluminum bats provided -- inside four token-operated cages, where softballs or baseballs are launched at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. (Forty mph -- the slowest speed -- was plenty fast for us.) The pro shop is well stocked too, in case you feel like splurging on that Rawlings Liquidmetal Plasma Fusion bat.
