Build a Batting Cage

A small home batting cage is perfect for those who need to practice, or anyone who enjoys playing baseball. In most cases, building a private batting cage is very expensive. This usually requires hiring a professional contractor and purchasing materials. Persons interested in having their own personal cage can save money if they choose to build a batting cage. There are plans available. Some people do not consider this route because hiring a professional is easier and more convenient. Furthermore, you can find cheap batting cages from a variety of retailers. Cages are delivered in a kit, and can be installed within a few hours. Nonetheless, wholesale or discount batting cages are still costly.

With a limited number of materials, you can build a batting cage. For starters, research different plans. Next, choose the appropriate size. Measure the available space before purchasing a plan. Some plans are for larger cages, which may not fit in your back yard. Once a plan is selected, begin shopping for materials. Necessary materials include a frame and net. You can find great deals on batting cage frames from local hardware stores or online discount retailers. Netting for the cage can be purchased from a variety of retailers. Begin your search with a local sporting goods retailer. If unsuccessful, browse the merchandise selections offered by a sports equipment dealer.

After the plans and materials are in-hand, you can begin installation. Plans on how to build a batting cage provide instructions on preparing the ground, inserting the frame, and attaching the netting. Depending on the size or height of the batting cage, this project may require the help of an assistant. Throw a few baseballs and test the stability of the netting. Once the project is finished, complete the batting cage with an automatic pitching machine.
