It all started with a boy and his bat…
Is this your hitting program? You need a portable batting cage...
Are you visiting this website because you have been using the following hitting program and want a better solution? Does this sound all too familiar?
- Take about twenty balls in a bucket or plastic bag.
- Drive to a local park or ball field, possibly waiting for availability.
- Pitch (and duck on occasion) while your son or daughter hits.
- Spend the same amount of time finding the balls as you did hitting them.
- Lose some balls, because the ball and grass color are about the same – brown!
- Repeat steps 3 – 5 until dark or you run out of balls.
- Drive home exhausted, saying to yourself, there has to be a better way!
Hi, my name is Bob DeCloss. I am the owner and president of Cages*Plus . Outside of school practice, my son, Daniel's hitting program consisted of the above procedure for several years. We needed something better. Daniel was getting stronger too, which I realized after getting tagged a few times when pitching to him from in front of the mound with no protection. I looked to see if there was a portable batting cage on the market There wasn't. They were way out of my price range and they were permanent. I wanted something I could afford and I wanted a portable batting cage.
Using my mathematics and physics background, I invented a totally new design: a cage with netting draped over the frame. After using it for some time my son said, “You know, dad, I'll bet there are a lot of people out there who'd love to have what we have.” So in 1998 we went to the internet and discovered that my son was right! We have had a blast. It has been a real joy listening to hundreds and hundreds of families say how appreciative they are to have something they can afford and use in their own backyard.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then we are really flattered. The competition used to ignore us, then they said beware of 'homemade remedies', now they copy us.
We hope you find what you are looking for at a price you can afford. Of course, we think we have the best product on the market today. Give us a call, we'd love to talk to you. Oh, that son of mine, who loved baseball, and spent hours everyday in his portable batting cage after school and after practice – his high school team took second in state his junior year, and won the state title his freshman, sophomore, and senior year.
