About


The Salt Lake Park Batting Cage is now open!

The two-lane batting cage is located at the Salt Lake Park baseball fields. 

The batting cage is available for private rental as well as for use by teams in the city’s 
youth baseball and softball leagues (contact the sports coordinator for more details about team use). 

The batting cage was built with funding from a grant by Major League Baseball’s Baseball Tomorrow Fund.  It features one hitting lane for baseball and one hitting lane for fastpitch softball.
