A professional baseball player can never seem to get enough ‘swings’ with a bat in a day. Whether it is during a game, off of a batting practice pitcher, hitting off a tee or underhand soft toss from a teammate, you can always find someone taking some cuts on a professional baseball team. At the new Cincinnati Reds Spring Training Complex in Goodyear, Arizona, accomplishing this feat is very easy.
Within a couple hundred feet from the clubhouse are five covered batting cages, allowing a large number of players to get in their work at the same time. If the weather is nice, there are an additional six cages located outside as well.
A major advance in these covered cages, are that cameras are mounted inside of them to record players swings so they can look at them later and analyze with the coaching staff.
