Grand Re-opening of the Parks and Recreation Batting Cages
Saturday, April 1
The Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department is excited to host a grand reopening of the Homestead Park Batting Cages from 12-4 p.m. Saturday, April 1.
Staff have replaced circuit boards in each unit, replaced bearings, purchased new balls, pressure washed the facility, purchased and placed a new net around the cages and we are excited to hear that magical sound of the ball hitting the bat.
Free tokens, food, drinks, baseball equipment, four Tar Heel Baseball tickets for the UNC vs NC State game on April 14, and other prizes will be given away.
Located at 100 Aquatic Drive at Chapel Hill’s Homestead Park, the batting cages overlook the Homestead Aquatics Center, offering open-air baseball pitching at varying speeds as well as several softball pitching machines.
Helmets are required for use. We encourage patrons to bring their own helmets, but helmets will be at the facility for users to borrow.
Pitching machines deliver 25 pitches upon activated with a token, which costs $2. Three tokens cost $5, and seven cost just $10. Tokens are available for purchase at the front desk of the Homestead Aquatic Center.
The cages will be open 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday thru Friday, and 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. Saturday & Sunday.
