    Default Let me see your "At Home Practice Facilities"

    I am just curious to see what all cages, nets, tee stations, hitting strength equipment, etc.... that people have set up at their own homes. Post a picture if you got it. Thanks. (maybe it will help my wife to realize that I am not the only crazy person out there wanting to install this kind of stuff)

    Bass, go out and start your wife's car, for her. (Unless it is on the streets of Chicago.)

    First image is where players bat, full size boxes for hitters closest to the net and a second set for slappers behind that. Fould lines painted and proceed up the wall.

    Second image is my "Wall of Future Fame." Each of my students signs after their first lesson, and adds the college they are going to after they have signed.

Behind the net is a lifesize pitcher cut out of drywall and adhered to the wall for visual reference.

Except for the back wall behind foul lines, all the walls are painted optic yellow like this, with super sized softball and seems drawn on.

    right now our cage is down for the winter, but we have a batting cage in the back yard that I will break up in 2 to 3 stations for DD and which ever other girls come over to hit. Its also equiped with a pitching tunnel. DD has a strike zone taped out on her bedroom door at the end of the hall way so she can practice pitching indoors. She throws a foam light flite ball up against it to get snaps in on those cold winter days. The door itself had many cracks from the force of the ball hitting it.
    Play for the name on the front, and they will remember the name on the back.

    12HX16WX70L with lots of equipment and accessories.
    Cage is around nine years old and will easily last another 20 with VERY little maintenance required. YES, I would do it again with a couple of mods, but we have six kiddos so it gets a LOT of use.
