Home Run Park
This open year-round outdoor batting cage center has been open and around for a long time, as it was established in 1961. Twenty automated and token-operated hitting lanes are available, with the split by sport being 14 baseball and six softball (both slow and fastpitch machines are available). Hitting and pitching lessons are offered, with pitchers able to throw in the two dirt mound bullpens found on site, which also includes a pro shop building that sells gloves, bats and helmets galore.
So Cal Hitting Zone
Four turfed batting cages are found in this 7,000 square foot facility that’s nestled in an office park in the San Fernando Valley. Three of the cages are used in conjunction with a token-operated pitching machine, with each machine throwing a different set speed (40, 55 or 75 MPH). Open as a baseball training center since 2013, the staff offers hitting tips and private lessons to those who desire personalized instruction.
Rex’s Baseball Batting Cage
A classic outdoor batting cage range, Rex’s has been around since 1978 and is still a cash-only business. It’s home to eight lanes of hitting, with six of them being for baseball and two reserved for softball (one slow pitch, one fast pitch). Hitting is done off of token-operated pitching machines. Each baseball cage pitches balls at different set speeds that span from 40 to 90 MPH. Called Rex’s Baseball World on its roadside sign and located in LA’s West Athens area near I-105, the pitching machines here throw yellow dimpled balls and the cages can be reserved for various lengths of time.
The Brickyard Cages
Six batting cages and a soft toss area are contained within this 8,800 square foot facility, which is found near the I-5/I-8 interchange in a brick building that inspired the place’s name. An arm-style pitching machine is included with a cage rental. One of the machines throws softballs and all machines are loaded by customers for hitting (there’s no automatic ball return). Camps, clinics and lessons are among the other offerings of the batting cage center.
Batter’s Box SF
Found in one of the historic warehouses at the Presidio’s Crissy Field, this small spot is big on batting technology as HitTrax and video screen synced pitching machines are used in conjunction with the batting cages. Open since 2014, the cages here can be reserved for baseball, slow pitch or fastpitch softball hitting. Lessons, classes and camps are offered as well.
