If you cannot afford, or you cannot buy an indoor batting cage then there is no problem at all. You can also built a batting cage on your own and here are the few tips you will be needing while installing the batting cage in your house.
The first thing you have to do to build a batting cage at your home is that look for the correct place. The place should be spacious, it should be at least 15 feet wide and 40 feet long. Also, you need a super flat area to build an indoor batting cage.
Once you have decided the place, you should build a border type thing by placing 3 woods after every 12 to 14 feet. Instead of a piece of a wood, you can also use PVC pipe, the one which is an inch long and then you can create a frame with the help of that.
To secure the bases to the surface, one needs to attach the bases with the anchor hook, this is for indoor batting cage, if you want to build an outdoor one then you need to dig a hole and do things according to that.
Okay, so that third step is to hammer the eye bolts along with the netting and that too with each post. If you do not have eye bolts, or you do not want to use it then you can also use sand bags instead of eye bolts.
The last step is the most lengthy and the tough one, but it is doable as well. All you need is to drop the net over the top and then pull it down, evenly. Once it is down, you can leave it when around one foot of net is left on the ground.
The next thing which you have to do is, you have to attach the netting to each eye ball and make sure that you do not stretch the net very tightly, if you will then the net might get torn and it can ruin all your time, energy and effort.
Once the net is fixed and all ready to go, you can add other extra equipment’s to your batting cage. You can also line your floor with artificial grass or you can pitching machines and other stuff like these, and your batting cage is all set and ready to use.
Installing an indoor batting cage is easier than installing an outdoor batting cage. Also, if you do not purchase it from the market and make one on your own, it will cost you less and it will be more fun.
So, if you want to build your own batting cage, then you can follow these easy steps and make one for yourself as well. It is totally worth it and you should definitely give it a shot.
