My rec league softball team and I like to come here on weekends sometimes to get practice in. They provide very reasonable rates and good quality equipment. I really enjoy this place, and will come back many more times.

My one complaint is that their ONLY water is bottled water for 1 dollar. I made this mistake on a warm day and had no cash so I was more parched than a cactus. No doubt a great place to hit whether you're 6 years old or Great set up, friendly people and looks like a young family owned business. They really take care of the entire operation and the equipment is top notch. I pitched to my son there, who is in his first year in college and the mats we hit on were as nice or nicer than many college facilities.

Baseball Central is a nice spot to train kids or adults to hit or pitch the baseball. Open late and usually can get in on short notice. Wish they had an automatic feed machine so I could hit a few solo. The indoor cages are great and staff are awesome. Parking is easy which makes it even better. Came here with my girlfriend to try out batting cage for the first time. It was fun and a great experience.

Also had a quick training session and that was very helpful too. Went here with my girlfriend because we thought it'd be fun we don't play baseball normally and it was super fun!

Very easy to sign in and get set up, staff was super friendly and walked us through what to do. Seems like they easily accommodate amateurs like us and those looking to get some more serious cuts in. I came in a couple week's ago with an old college friend of mine while she was in town.

I live right down the street and have always wanted to give it a try. So, I gave them a call and spoke to Gabe who is the manager of the facility. We got to the business and it was WAY more than expected! Who knew that there was a place this awesome in the middle of Los Angeles!!! I played softball in college so this place brought back a lot of feeling's being there. Gabe helped us from beginning to end of our batting time, from setting up the machine, being a gentleman by carrying our bucket of balls, as well as the checkout process.

I will definitely be back if they keep up this kind of customer service! I would recommend this place to anyone of any age. Great place to practice. Clean, good cages, parking available. Aubrey at reception was very helpful! Highly recommended batting cages! Came in without a reservation, luckily, there was no one signed up for the cage we ended up using.

Make sure to go with two people since you have to manually feed the balls in. Overall, had a wonderful experience. Good prices, great service, and had so much fun.

Bring some cold water, of purchase drinks from their vending machines. My favorite place in there was the office a lot of jerseys Bobbleheads and baseball movie posters to gaze at while you wait!

It's not about drinking beer or playing mini-golf It's the type of place where an old ex-dodger finds the next prodigy and reality shifts into a feel good 90's baseball film starring Tom Hanks and Madonna. I come here every other week or so with friends to hit balls. Staff is amazing too.

Depending on quality, size and materials these batting cages can range from a few thousand to over 20 thousand dollars and more. Remember the costs of home made cages will also fluctuate dramatically depending on the size of the cage and the quality of materials used, so proper planning and material pricing is of key importance.

How to Build a Batting Cage. Where you will locate the batting cage will be your first step and there are various factors which affect this decision. How long and wide is your yard? The size of the batting cage may have to be adapted to the allowable yard size, and the smaller size may not suit the intended purpose, which squashes the project before it starts, but also before materials are bought.

What is the terrain? Does the yard lay flat, a gentle slope, rolling or is it a hill? Regardless of how the ground lays the cage may be adaptable with a few modifications. Any type of turf, or lack of turf is fine, only wet or swampy ground is unplayable, but it will require Policing the area. All rocks, debris, tree stumps, anything which could cause an injury to a player or damage to the equipment must be removed.

You have determined who will use the batting cage, feet long for kids, feet for adults, 12 feet high and 12 feet wide, now you have 2 choices of how to buy netting. General sized netting large enough to accommodate the cage, but bear in mind this could be difficult to cut to size without destroying wrapping which prevents unraveling;.

In any event, before getting too ambitious, keep in mind the bigger the cage - the bigger the cost. The next decision is what type of material are you going to use to construct the frame work of the batting cage. Treated or Cedar lumber, untreated pine lumber will quickly rot, can be used to build the frame. Most equipment and tools required to use wood are normal everyday tools, hammer, saw etc.

PVC pipe comes in different thicknesses which determines strength, always use schedule 40 pipe. Getting the area and frame outline properly sized is important. This will give you the Four 4 corners of the batting cage.

Now that your outline is square, tie string low around each corner stake forming a rectangle. I always used some cheap white spray paint and traced along the string to establish my outline because I could then remove the string and stop tripping over it, but you can leave the string in place. You now have your cage support structures perfectly measured and identified and are ready for the next step.
