Day 87: Batting Cages at Chelsea Piers

In Chelsea, NYC, NYC Sports and Recreation, things to do in NYC on August 26, 2009 at 11:48 pm


Up for a little sweat? Some good old-fashioned fun? At this point hopefully you’ve realized you’re not gonna make it to the big league, and that you’re never gonna be Babe Ruth. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time dreaming. For a dose of something different, head over to the Field House at the Chelsea Piers for a session in the batting cages. A pocket full of tokens buys you an hour of fun, and to boot, gets your heart pumping and gives you a chance to work on that hand-eye coordination that needs improvement. Great for a casual first date, the typically dreaded ‘team-building exercise’ with co-workers or just goofing off with your pals, you can’t go wrong. For beginners, it’s best to start slow. Then if you’re feeling confident, work your way up to the faster pitching cages (and stand there in awe as balls whiz by you.) Be forewarned: you might be a spectacle to onlookers at the nearby soccer fields. But hey, if they laugh, laugh with them. Why not embrace the fact that you’ll never be pro?
