Chances are you put a lot of thought into which batting cage you decided to invest in before you purchased it. However, as time has gone on, you may not be giving it the same scrutiny you once had as you continue your batting practice. For this reason, performing regular batting cage maintenance and looking for wear and tear can help preserve your investment.
Of the components included in your batting cage setup, it's likely that your netting will be the one that takes the most damage regularly from hit baseballs or missed pitches. This is especially prevalent if you don't have a baffle net or backstop in place. If you find any tears or holes in your existing batting cage netting, replacements are available through SkillBuilder's online store.
Although the frame of your batting cage is built to last with durable materials, there is a chance that it can warp or become strained over time due to high winds or improper installation. However, the most likely scenario that you will encounter is that the connections securing the frame together begin to loosen. Take the time to inspect and tighten all of your frame connections for the best experience possible.
If you have an indoor batting cage that is in a shared practice setting, such as a gymnasium, you may be using a winch to raise and lower your netting. Most electric winches are very low-maintenance; however, you should still ensure hardware connections are secure and the winch is still functioning properly. This will ensure your batting cage can be lowered whenever needed.
