Wheelhouse Batting Cages offer an affordable and portable way to practice hitting year round, indoors or outdoors. A traditional cage (netting and frame alone) costs $1,000 to $2,000. This price does not include installation kits (turnbuckles, cable, snap hooks, etc.) costing $175 to $300. Plus, the shipping charges for a complete cage can be another $200 to $300! Permanent cages require holes to dig and cement to pour.
We have a better solution: The Wheelhouse Batting Cage by Cages Plus. These systems are portable, safe, durable, and stable for indoor or outdoor use by baseball players from t-ball through college. Plus, they ship for FREE!
These cages are sold without poles! Economically, it's the only way that makes sense. We ship UPS ground and UPS does not ship anything over 9’ long, however, batting cage poles are 10’ long. To ship truck freight would cost hundreds of dollars that you could spend on new bats or other equipment. Purchase the Wheelhouse batting cage and you’ll receive just one box with cage netting, cage connectors, extra twine, and assembly instructions (plus the optional L-Screen if you add it to your order). You then buy the poles locally. They are standard 10’ long; you don't even have to cut them. The poles are 3/4" EMT (Electrical Metallic Tubing) and are available in hardware stores such as Home Depot or Lowe’s.
For the 50’ Wheelhouse Batting Cage System you will need to purchase 28 - 10' lengths of EMT tubing.

Very pleased with the cage. Was easy to install and will be easy to take down in windstorms at the beach. Kids are super excited to take BP in the backyard.
Exactly what I was looking for. Very easy to put together!
Like many people, I did a lot of research when looking to install a batting cage in my yard for my 8 and 5 year old sons. I looked at the permanent structures with the frame posts buried in concrete as well as the portable/collapsible structures that pop up in seconds. I decided against the permanent structures due to HOA concerns as well as difficulty in setting up. I was also concerned about the durability of the collapsible cages as I wanted one my sons could use for many years and was also concerned about how well it would stand up in windy conditions. I finally settled on the portable 50x14x10 Wheelhouse Batting Cage. This cage comes with a #21 net and frame corners. You purchase the 10 foot poles (3/4” EMT) locally (need 28 for the 50’ cage). I was able to buy them for under $4.00 each at Home Depot. I also purchased the L-screen (highly recommended to have one of these!). The box arrived in about a week. Although having a helper would have been nice, I was able to set up the entire thing by myself in about an hour (I’m sure it will go quicker the next time around). We have had it up for a little over a month now and so far I am very pleased with it. The frame corners appear to be very durable and the netting contains the balls well. The netting appears to be strong, but I guess only time will tell as to how well it holds up in the Georgia sun. The EMT poles also are plenty strong, however, they have enough give to them so that balls that hit them don’t bounce back hard at the hitter or pitcher. My boys are still young so we will see how the poles hold up as they get older and start hitting the ball harder. But if the poles do happen to get damaged, they are easily/inexpensively replaceable. We use both a Jugs Lite Flite pitching machine and real baseballs pitched by me in the cage without any issues. I will probably hang a backstop of some sort from the top of the cage frame to help stop the baseballs. The cage does go up and down pretty easily, but I still think it would be a bit of a hassle to set up/take down just for a practice or tournament but it certainly could be done quickly enough with a helper or two. As for wind tolerance, the cage is a bit protected by trees and the house, but we have had winds strong enough to knock over the L screen sitting inside the cage but the cage itself has stood strong. If your cage is more exposed you may want to anchor the poles somehow (rope & tent stakes, etc.). My boys love being able to go outside and hit any time they want. So far I am very pleased with this cage.
