Years back, it was out of the budget for most people to be able to purchase a batting cage. These used to run upwards of $3500. These cages were permanent fixtures that were very heavy and installed with concrete. However, these days they are more affordable and portable than they have ever been. The old saying, “you get what you pay for”, generally applies to most things. Softball batting cages are included because even the more affordable options will wear down faster than higher end products. That said, the options you’ll find on this site are all highly rated and well-reviewed.
The most important part about any batting cage is the netting. Solid netting will last you for years and cheap netting might lead you to be disappointed and frustrated. Some of the netting options out there include poly net, HDPE – high density polyethylene, knotless nylon and knotless poly to name a few. Tenacity is another features that you should take into consideration. Better nets are going to have higher tenacity. These nets should also be UV and water protected. All of these features lead to longer lasting softball batting cages.
All that said, we are going to make your search a little easier by listing some of our favorite softball batting cages for the 2019 season. These batting cages are all highly rated and should last you for a long time. You’ll always have to take price into consideration, but there is something for everyone here. Enjoy!
