With baseball season in our rearview and snow beginning to fly in much of the north, many of us are concentrating on finishing up football seasons or commencing various indoor sports such as basketball and volleyball.
While this is common for this time of the year, there are those who never seem to tire of baseball or preparing for the following season. With batting cages found in many outdoor environments, advancements in the design of these enclosed practice spaces are now allowing them to be moved indoors.
This was proven by our team recently when we received a phone call from Harriton High School located just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With one indoor batting cage already installed, the school was in need of a second one to keep up with demand from the big bats at the high school.
With an emphasis on designing something that was perfectly suited for their gymnasium, we recruited our partners at School Installers of PA (SIPA) to assist us on the project as they have done many times before.
Arriving at the gymnasium, laser-like measurements were acquired by SIPA’s team and sent back to our head office where our designers and engineers met to create a state-of-the-art suspended batting cage for the gymnasium. After reviewing our plan and drawings, our proposal was finalized and the manufacturing process commenced.
Upon completion, the system was shipped directly to the school where it was met by SIPA’s experienced team who safely and effectively installed the batting cage inside the gymnasium.
Today, there are twice as many bats swinging at Harriton High School and we are certainly looking forward to seeing the finished product on the diamond this spring.
