What does a Little Leaguer do when his mom’s not much of a pitcher and he wants to sneak in a little practice before the season starts? Anne recommends that, if you’re in the St. Paul area, you give the Rice and Arlington Batting Cages a try. One token ($2) gives your slugger 22 pitches and he/she can choose a speed that suits them (between 40-70 miles per hour). Aim at targets, improve your swing, or just have some fun seeing what you can hit. Batting helmets and bats are provided. Even if you are not in the St. Paul area, we’ve found the best batting cages for kids around the Twin Cities metro to help baseball lovers get a little practice during the long off-season.
Minnesota winters can get long and the temptation to wait it out with extra screen time is enticing. Try out these facilities when you need some indoor fun with your softball or baseball lovers:
