The Batting Cage Is
In the early days of our game of baseball we were blessed with big yards, open fields and makeshift sandlot ball fields.
Today we find our population has mushroomed to a level we would have never imagined in our days of youth out in our wide open country spaces now we live in subdivision paradise with houses everywhere.
Now we are reminded of the Old West and surely remember the Cow-pokes song for sure which goes, "Give Me Land Lots of Land Underneath The Cloudy Skies Above, Let Me Wander Over Yonder In The Wide Open Spaces, Don't Fence Me In."
There are still open fields but many of those places are removed from the immediate neighborhood.
Society and the hustle and bustle of the day and the explosion of our automobile traffic volume puts a damper on our lifestyle.
Allowing our youngsters to ramble around the entire neighborhood going to the nearby fields to play has quickly become a no no.
Given this unprecedented change from the laid back easy going summertime fun, bicycling anywhere we desired to go is now in the past.
The use and rapid popularity of the availability of modern equipment is coming to the rescue of youngsters of today but is a far cry from equipment of my generation yearning to hone their competitive playing skills.
The limitation of space and not even considering the traffic dangers, this modern equipment allows for practicing of hitting to our youngster's hearts content.
When one hears the term cage he envisions a strong steel ribbed cage to keep the wild Tiger or Lions from our harm. An enclosed cage made of a soft netted rope like enclosure to help us retain our baseballs while hitting till our heart is content is the standard.
Comes now some good folks at Nedco Sports who have put at your disposal an affordable quality batting cage which every neighborhood should have available for their kids hitting practice time.

We do not have to have all little Bubba's of the neighborhood chasing the hit baseballs into the high weeds and bringing them back for us. What a real marvel of today's practice arena for baseball hitting practice.
Not only do we have the cage designed equipment there are numerous hitting training aids and devices which help in developing the baseball hitting skills.
We are also fast approaching the age of computer simulated programs whereby the skills needed are enhanced and reinforced to improve the baseball playing skills i;e especially hitting.
There is one note of caution from this ole' baseball player wannabe and that is simply this:
"Look over the many options of style, size and design of several models prior to laying out that hard earned cash."
Hey, come on Dad! We had promised to go check about that batting practice equipment.
You mentioned it and he has it on his agenda so dad that is how things are today.
While you look over the array of batting cages take a good look and feel for some of the latest in the other baseball equipment, to support the neighborhood kids coming to enjoy the practice equipment.
Never forget to look your area over good for some good used baseball equipment which might be readily available from someone moving away and having to leave the area. Sometimes there will be some good deals available below wholesale baseball equipment and this includes excellent batting cages.
