Best Batting Cage - 2009
Whether you're looking to test your mettle against 90 mph fastballs or crank slow-pitch softballs off a distant wooden Cubs logo, Tower Tee is a hitter's paradise, equipped for just about any batting option one could possibly desire. For slow-pitch softballers Tower Tee offers three different arcs; for fast-pitch there are two speed options. Baseball gets a whopping eight machines that range from 30 mph spongeballs for the littlest swingers all the way up to 80 mph. And if 80 mph doesn't do it for you, show up on Wednesday when they crank that baby up to 90. Got a competitive streak? The Tee teams up with Happy Joe's for an annual hitting contest each July and a junior contest in late August. OK, so none of us is the next Albert Pujols. There's no crime in getting out there and pretending you're standing at the plate at Busch Stadium, ready to win the game in the bottom of the ninth with a walk-off home run.
