Does anyone have any Batting Cage tips?
So, I'm taking a date tomorrow to a local batting cage. However, I have not gone to one in over 12 years. The last time I played baseball was roughly 5 years ago with friends and I got maybe 2 hits in 5 at bats.
I was wondering if anyone had any tips to use at the cages. Particularly, tips geared towards someone who bats a .133 :( I'm pretty sure I can handle pitches at a moderate speed, but definitely not the fastest. I have a comfortable stance and decently timed swinging motion (hip, shoulder and wrist rotation).
Beyond general tips, should I start off at the slowest speed and get in a good rhythm before moving up in speed? Or will changing the pitch speed over and over throw off my timing?
If you are wondering why I would choose to go on a date to do something I am sincerely not good at, it's: one, cheap; two, active entertainment without being overly exhausting; three, if I perform well it might give me a leg up later on (quite literally, I'm hoping).
Thanks ahead of time!
