The Northbrook Park District installed six batting cages in Techny Prairie Park and Fields to provide more intensive practice for ball players and a warm-up facility for teams. All six machines pitch baseballs, and four of the machines can pitch 12” softballs. Players can choose the speed of the balls.
When the cages are in operation, an attendant is on site to sell tokens. Tokens are 1 token/$1 or 6 tokens/$5. Each token is good for 12 pitches. Helmets are required and provided at no charge. Customers can borrow bats or bring their own. For more information, call 847-291-2980.

The Batting Cages are currently closed for the winter season and will reopen April 9. See spring hours below.
