There’s 2 out and 2 on in the bottom of the ninth. Home team is down 3-2, winning run is on second base. Pitcher has the ball. Pitcher gets the signal and starts their windup. And the pitch is delivered low and inside…SMACK – the ball is drilled opposite field and the home team wins!
Every kid at some point has this vision. Every time they step into your batting cage, they envision this exact scenario and imagine what they would do if given the opportunity to win the day. As they dream big, they keep coming back to practice for the ultimate baseball (or softball) moment.
For you, the owner and operator of the batting cage, you have a slightly different viewpoint. Every time a batter steps into your batting cage, you are hoping that they follow all the safety rules that they likely ignored and are wearing a helmet to protect them from the solid object that is going to be continuously hurled at them – in some cases in excess of 60 mph. The injuries from batting cage accidents can be staggering. Incidents ranging from concussions to contusions, broken fingers to noses, it really is a business with a ton of risk.
