  • Wheelhouse Batting Cages

    I'm looking at putting a batting cage in my back yard and came across the website for these. Anyone have one that would like to share their thoughts? This would be for my kids as well as for me (slowpitch softball). I like that it comes with the l-screen which will be great!

    Thanks for your insight.

    I looked at these when I was buying my cage. Went with this company http://www.battingcagesinc.com/index...ngCagePackages

    3/4 " tubing is pretty thin, Mine uses 1 3/8 powder coated poles that are stronger than emt conduit. They tend to move around a bit in the wind so I personally went with the bigger tubing. You can get an L screen anywhere .

      I have a wheelhouse, and it is a great solution. I am curious with the bigger tubes does the net hang inside it? The Wheelhouse system is great, the owners are awesome people who stand by their product. I would not hesitate to get another one or reccomend it to a buddy. This will me my 4th summer with mine.

          It looks like the Wheelhouse requires you to buy additional tubing at a local hardware store due to shipping them being too costly. Do the BCI cages require this as well? Or does everything come in the package? Thank you.

            All came in a kit, they are 5 foot sections that snap together with the little metal ball. Makes installation easy, set it up 5 ft high throw the net over the top then add the second foot pole all the way around. Takes me & the wife about 45 mins up or down. I have seen a bunch around & for the money i would recommend it to anyone

              Did you get the L-screen from them as well? If so, can you speak to the quality of the screen? If not, did you purchase a different screen and if so, which one?

              Thank you.

                I purchased the Easton L screen from Dicks sporting goods, so far super durable saved my face many a time

                    I have the 35' kit(small back yard) from battingcagesinc with their L-screen. It's going on it's 3rd year. The only issue we've had is rust.
                    The L-screen is solid.

                      I have one. I like it except that you need to weight the bottom of the net. balls sometimes get thru.
