NORTH SIOUX CITY, SD - Our batting cages have a name! The Scheels Batting Cages are located inside of the Liberty National Bank Performance Center, featuring two 55x14x16' cages, one 70x14x16' batting cage, two HitTrax hitting simulators that enhance the experience of hitting in the cage by tracking the exit velocity, launch angle and distance the ball travels, and a Pelotero Hitting Assessment System that can devise a custom hitting program for each athlete. Batting Cages, HitTrax and Pelotero are available for rent on United’s UpperHand reservation system.
"The United Sports Academy continually maintains a high standard of excellence when it comes to youth sports. We are proud to partner with a facility that gives athletes the chance to play a sport they love, while also establishing values that carry over to all aspects of their lives. The SCHEELS Batting Cages will be a great asset to the United Sports Academy and to kids and families in our community," states Sioux City Scheels Events Coordinator, Lexi Mounts.
