Baseball batting cage netting is the primary part to a batting cage. There are indoor and outdoor batting cages. Batting cages are used to improve a player’s batting skills, be it a beginner or a professional. A batter will stand at one end of the cage and usually a pitching machine is at the other end. The machine pitches the ball to the batter and the batter hits the balls working on his batting skills. The netting is used to cover the area to keep the balls within the cage. Most pitching machines in commercial cages pitch with speeds between 30 and 90 miles per hour.
Most batting cages use steel poles or chain length fencing to enclose the batting cage. The facilities tend to use the netting to cover it completely. The netting has to be durable. When a player is in the batting cage the machine is pitching balls at him, he hits the ball, the ball is held inside the cage with the net. Whether your batting cage is in your back yard or in a professional facility or park, you must have a good quality durable net for your batting cage.

A batting cage can potentially be a dangerous place to the people inside and outside of the cage. When the ball is pitched at a batter at 90 mile per hour, the batter swings the bat connecting with the ball, which sends the ball is hurling at a high rate of speed. With quality netting, the ball will hit the net and it will stop the ball. This prevents anyone on the inside or the outside from being injured. If the netting is not used the ball will fly into the air and at a greater distance than if the net is there. A line-drive style hit might seriously injure a person if they are struck by the ball.
