At D-BAT Austin, our batting cages use real baseballs and softballs. Cage Rentals are a great way to work your kid out individually or bring in a team in for batting practice. Cage Rentals are rented out on 1/2 hr. increments. Each cage comes equipped with Baseballs/Softballs, "L-Screen", and a batting tee.


How many pitches do I get with each token?

Each token is good for 15 pitches.

Do I have to rent the pitching machines AND buy tokens?

Our pitching machines cannot be rented.  To hit on our pitching machines, you are only required to buy tokens or a membership (memberships include daily tokens).
All of our cages operate on a first-come, first-served basis. If there are multiple hitters per machine, we ask that you to rotate after each round.

All cage rentals apply to the tunnels without pitching machines.

Will my tokens expire if I don't use them all in one visit?

Tokens do not expire.  So, as long as you hold onto your token card, you will be able to come back and use the remaining credits upon your next visit!

Does each machine pitch softballs and baseballs?

All four of our machines can throw either softballs or baseballs.  Simply select which you would like to hit on your round and then select the pitch speed.  Your round will begin in about 10-20 seconds.

What type of baseballs do you use?

We use real baseballs, which have a Kevlar coating to prevent the cover of the ball from ripping as easily as a standard leather-coated ball.

What is the distance from your pitching machines to home plate?

Our baseball and softball pitching machines are each set up 43' from home plate (which means that our 70MPH setting is roughly the equivalent of reacting to a 105MPH fastball from 60 feet 6 inches).
