INDOOR BASEBALL FACILITY
Indoor Baseball & Softball Facilities
Are you considering building a baseball indoor practice facility or adding one to a building you already own? Everyone from youth through professional players can benefit from having a place to train during inclement weather. It's critical to design an indoor baseball and softball facility with care to ensure the safety of players, coaches and spectators.
Grand Slam Safety has many years of experience in baseball safety. We have assisted many facility owners by developing customized fencing and netting solutions to fit your indoor baseball facility.
Design Considerations for an Indoor Baseball Facility
Structural elements like HVAC systems, lights, fire suppression, and ceiling fans can often impede your ideal layout. While we can design around these obstacles, it's more efficient and cost-effective to plan for them in advance. Better yet, sit down with our skilled, knowledgeable team to talk about the design for your new facility. We'll make sure the process runs smoothly from start to finish.
As you plan your indoor baseball or softball facility layout, ask yourself a few questions to get started:
Who will play at your facility? Will you host Little league games and practices, or are you aiming to attract high school and college teams?
Will batting cages be incorporated into the space?
Is this strictly a training facility, or will games and tournaments also be held there?
Will there be places for spectators and parents to watch? How will that integrate into your space?
Indoor Baseball Field Size
The size of your field depends on the age of the players you want to attract. To set up the field correctly, you will need to know the details for your age group. Want to attract several age levels? You need the ability to vary the field size to accommodate different levels of play. Plus, it's important to decide how many fields you want in your indoor baseball facility design.
With our SPECTO® netting, you can stretch the playing almost to the limits of your structural footprint. Our fencing can be placed as close as 30 inches of any structure and still provide a safe cradling effect as players run into it at full speed. Divider curtains and sport netting can split any space into multiple playing areas or a separate practice area, like a bullpen.
Our fencing, curtain and netting options let you customize the space to any scheduled event or practice. This flexibility comes in handy as you reconfigure your space for schedule, programming and seasonal changes.
Indoor Batting Cages
Indoor batting cages require a lot of vertical and horizontal space. Our team can customize batting cages to the space you have available. Our standard cages measure 70 feet long, 14 feet wide and 12 feet high.
We offer bottom lift cages, which collect the netting up from the bottom. Plus, you can pull our batting cages horizontally on a track or cable, and stack the cages against a wall when not in use.
Batting cages work best in rooms with flat or sloped ceilings. You can configure the netting into one or two cages. Plus, add a portable pitching mound to your indoor hitting and pitching facility, and give hitters and pitchers a better simulation of game situations.
Area for Spectators
Do you plan to host tournaments at your facility? A total containment system would be your best bet. This includes tensioned SPECTO® netting for the first 8 feet, then netting above that is tied to the ceiling netting. This setup keeps balls and equipment on the field while letting spectators watch the game. In fact, with our SPECTO® netting, fans can get right up against the fence without worrying about being injured by a stray ball.
Do you have a balcony or upper deck for spectators? Our netting gives spectators a clear view on any level. When you stand back from the netting, it's nearly invisible to the eye, so it doesn't detract from watching the game.
