Batting Cage Upgrades
The Carnarvon batting cage has been upgraded with an artificial turf floor, wind/rain screens, new balls, and new pitching machine pads. The hope is to keep the balls clean so that the pitching machine throws a little more consistently. Or even better, have someone hand pitch to your player with the L-screen in place.
In any case, you have the opportunity to take your kids out to the cage throughout the off-season. Hopefully, we can keep the winter rust to a minimum and make up some of the offensive gap we seem to have with respect to other local leagues.
Contact any coach to get a key to the batting cage. Right now, we don’t have a reservation system in place. If the cage is busy, why not work out together and make a competition out of it? One run for a line drive off the side walls, two runs for a liner to the back of the cage. Grounders keep you alive, three strikes and you’re out. Play 6 “innings” and see who “wins”.
Please keep the cage tidy with the balls in a bucket for the next person. Keep the cage balls in the cage. If you want to hit balls on the field, there are 2 bags of shag balls in the umpire’s equipment box.
Special thanks to Patrick Perry for spearheading these upgrades. Great job!
