3 Iron Mikes for Baseball
BASES also features automated machines to use for hitting practice; 3 Iron Mike arm-style machines for baseball and 1 Iron Mike arm-style machine for softball (coming soon).
The Iron Mike machines, when renting a cage, are set at your requested speed. In general, the Iron Mike machines can range between 40 and 67 MPH (actual speed). The distance from the release point of the Iron Mike to the rear of the plate is approximately 49 feet. As such, the speeds listed above must be adjusted upward to determine effective pitch velocity that takes into account batter reaction time. The equivalent speeds reach up to the low 80's MPH. The Iron Mike machines at BASES are loaded with regular raised-stitch baseballs (not machine balls). These baseballs use special kevlar stitching to last longer in the pitching machines. Since we use regular baseballs, our balls will not leave the normal "machine ball" marks on your baseball bat.
BASES offers 8 full length (60' 6") pitching tunnels with large (8' x 11') mounds for baseball built to MLB specifications. Each pitching area can be adjusted to the suitable length for younger players simply by moving home plate to the designated mark on the turf. Half of the full length pitching tunnels are a full 15' wide allowing the user the option to pitch to a live hitter within the tunnel. This provides a great opportunity to hit the season in full stride.
BASES features a fully stocked Pro Shop with name brand equipment, apparel, and accesories. The Pro Shop offers equipment from Rawlings, Diamond, Champro, and more! If you don't see it on our shelves, we probably have it in our stock room. If it's not there, we'll get it for you as quickly as possible.
We currently have a HUGE supply of batting helmets, little league bats, and other team supplies you may not find locally. We also have a large collection of catcher's equipment for both baseball and softball. We even have umpire's protective equipment.
We also have the capability of producing t-shirts in-house. We can do simple uniforms with a very quick turnaround time. We also offer team shirts, keepsakes, and more. You can pick from thousands of ready made designs or provide your own artwork. Whether you need 10 shirts or 1000 shirts, we'll be happy to help you help you pick a style and design. Uniform orders using in-stock t-shirt inventory can be completed overnight. Small jobs (less than 50 shirts) can be completed in as little as 3 to 4 days. Larger jobs may require somewhat longer. Ask about our t-shirt facilities during your next visit.
