Getting into the swing of things...

Does anyone know where there are batting cages that throw faster than 85 mph? Or even any good cages? Sluggers, and Bunny Hutch are both weak.

The pessimist fears this to be true.

Become a regular at any of the smaller batting cage places. They will usually adjust the speed if you go on off peak times. I used to visit Grand Slam USA in Palatine and when I played in college Grand Slam in Lisle.

Really anything in the mid 80's is fine. All the cage is for is making sure that you don't pick up any bad habits in the off season.

There's an indoor place out here in Shorewood, cant recall the name off hand. Seem to have newer and decent equipment for most levels. No frills, just cages & various intruction (if need be) for the serious.
Directions:
Take I55 south to route 52, turn right and go past 3 lights. Should see a sign coming up on the left pass the village hall. Its tucked a block or 2 into the industrial park.
