A friend of mine and I decided to go to the local batting cages today – we recently joined a softball league in Portland and it officially begins next week so we needed some practice. As two individuals who have little to no softball experience, we were very intimidated by going to the batting cages – turns out that hitting softballs at a batting cage is a good stress reliever and a solid place to have a good time.
Of course, I can only speak about my experience today at Batting a Thousand, but I now think that everyone should give this a shot. There’s something that really wakes up inside of you after having balls fly 65mph in your general direction.
Bring it on, spring. I’ve got a bat and a positive attitude!
