40' Batting Cage
40' Batting Cage w/ L-screen and #21 knotted nylon netting Requires 23
poles for frame.
Buy a 40', 50', 60', or 70' batting
cage. The netting is made with high tenacity knotted nylon, which is quite
a bit stronger and more durable than other nets made with made from poly
net. The #21 knotted nylon has a burst strength of about 200 pounds per
strand or 800 pounds per mesh. All batting cages come with a complete
L-screen. They are built to last and give you years of enjoyment.
Everything is included except the frame poles which you buy You just buy
the standard 10' long 3/4" EMT poles locally at Lowe's or Home Depot.
The pole price, as of 6/24/2010 is $3.62 per pole.
70' Batting Cage

What we send you and what you have to buy.
You will receive one box approximately 42" long by 17" wide
by 17" tall. Since we make 40', 50', 60', and 70' long cages your box will
weigh 80, 90, 100, or 110 pounds, respectively. The box will contain the
cage netting, cage connectors, L-screen netting, L-screen connectors,
L-screen poles, extra twine, packing slip, copy of your invoice, and
assembly instructions. You will have to buy the 10' poles for the frame.
These are 3/4" EMT (electrical metallic tubing), standard electrical
conduit. They are 10' long steel galvanized pipe. The trade name is "thin
wall." We buy ours at places like Lowe's or Home Depot. For the 40', 50',
60' or 70' cage you will need to buy 23, 28, 33, or 38 poles respectively.
You will need a 7/16" wrench, we use a ratchet or socket wrench, assembly
goes faster that way. That's it.
- Affordable - Priced with
the family in mind -- a 50' cage with #21 netting the price is only $567.
This price includes netting, connectors, L-screen, and all hardware. No
installation kits to buy, cement to pour, or holes to dig. (See note
regarding shipping costs with and without poles on the Prices page.)
- Durable - The system is
stable and safe. It is a personal thing, but I like knotted nylon over
poly net. I think knotted nylon netting is much stronger than poly net. It
is strong, UV protected, and will last for years. The #21 gauge has a
burst strength of 200 pounds per strand or about 800 pounds per mesh
(diamond). Look or ask for the tenacity rating on knotted nylon. It is a
measure of its strength and durability. An ok rating is 8. Good quality
netting should be at least 9.0. Ours is above 9.
- Portable - Unlike other
cages, this system is PORTABLE! Two people can put up the cage in about 30
minutes, my son and I have put up a 50' cage in fifteen minutes. This
works out great for a team practice. With help from your team, it will go
up in minutes! It comes down in even less time. The L-screen is portable
too, its support legs come off and the screen folds in half.
- Flexible - Put up as few
or as many sections as you like, up to the length of your cage. Each
section is 10' long. It automatically fits the contour of your ground,
which does not have to be level. It can be adjusted to fit narrower
confines and can even be tapered to fit odd shaped spaces.
- Versatile - Indoors or
outdoors. Not only does it make a great outdoor batting cage, but it can
be taken indoors during inclement weather or during winter to keep your
players in shape. Utilize existing space and create an extra hitting
- Dimensions - The cage is
trapezoidal in shape: 10' tall, 10' wide at the top, and about 14' wide at
the bottom. The poles are 3/4" EMT - Electrical Metallic Tubing. The trade
name is "thin wall." The poles are 10' long steel galvanized pipe and
available at hardware and electrical supply stores such as Home Depot or
Lowe's. The L-screen is 6.5' tall by 7' wide with a 3'x3.5' cutout.
- Netting - The netting is 1
7/8" knotted nylon mesh. The #21 is rated at 200 lb. breaking strength per
cord or 800 lb. per mesh. The netting hangs on the diamond, not on the
square. This allows for more give when hit by a ball so there is less
chance for tear and less abrasion. It also allows water to run-off more
quickly. Here is a close-up snapshot of the #21 netting. One of the most
important aspects of quality netting for batting cages is its tenacity. It
should have a tenacity rating of at least 9.0.
- UV Protection - The
netting is dipped in a bonding agent for protection from weather and UV.
Unlike other cage companies, our netting is dipped after the knots are
made. This sets the knots so they won't come undone.
- Less Sag - Another
advantage of our design over the traditional netting is it has much less
sag. With our ten foot sections and the fact that the netting is hung over
the frame means considerable less sag, only a few inches rather than feet.
Traditional cages normally have only three or four frames to support the
netting. The weight of the netting causes tremendous sag, in some cases
2-3' of sag. It is not uncommon for a 12' high traditional cage to only
have 9' of height clearance. Look at some of the pictures on the web and
see. Most of the time the other cage manufacturers will only display
drawings of their netting, of course with no sag!
