Batting Cages

Our batting cages are a great way to practice baseball or softball indoors. Whether you are looking to do some pitching, live hitting, or use one of our new pitching machines, our batting cages will allow you to sharpen your skills while staying out of the elements.

The Byron Park District is now offering use of three new pitching machines with your batting cage rental. Currently the Park District has a baseball machine, softball machine, and one baseball/softball combo pitching machine available. Your batting cage rental includes use of one pitching machine, pitching machine balls (softballs or baseballs), and one L screen. Guests, high school and older may use the batting cages. Guests, 8th grade and younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please note, the use of batting cages is not included with memberships, punch cards, or daily drop ins. Batting cages can be reserved in advance by calling 815-234-8435.
