Why is this important?

In the batting cage world, players are looking for the best environment to simulate live game conditions. If you operate a batting cage rental business, it’s important to accommodate the players in your area with proper cage sizes, allowing for live game pitching practice & hitting. Hitters that practice in shorter cages can lose their timing, so it’s key to always ‘practice like you play’.
