Phoenix New Times's Description
Most outdoor batting cages suffer from the wear and tear of AZ summers, with ratty nets and sun-cracked equipment. And it's more than likely that the machines haven't been calibrated in years, resulting in more junk than strikes down the middle. Kiwanis Park is a rare exception, a batting range tended with loving care, thanks to the city of Tempe. Baseball machines start slow and top out at 75 miles per hour, but there also are slow-pitch softball machines, so you can practice for your office league, and fast-pitch softball machines for those training to be the next Jennie Finch. In addition to the cages, there's a pro shop to upgrade from that beat-up old batting glove and a concession stand to quench your thirst and sate those mid-practice hunger pangs.
Welcome to the Kiwanis Park Batting Range! For the past 23 years, we have been providing players of all ages the practice facility they need to take their game to the next level. From the recreational player to the professional, the Kiwanis Park Batting Range has everything you need to get your "game on". Swing in today and see why we have been rated one of the best Batting Ranges in Arizona!
You'll never bat against blotter-licker Dock Ellis and, well, odds are pretty damn good that you'll never stand in line to try out for the Diamondbacks. No worries, because you can still swing some wood or aluminum all summer long at the Kiwanis Park Batting Range.

You'll never bat against blotter-licker Dock Ellis and, well, odds are pretty damn good that you'll never stand in line to try out for the Diamondbacks. No worries, because you can still swing some wood or aluminum all summer long at the Kiwanis Park Batting Range. The Kiwanis management team recommends the "Turn, Look, Step, and Swing" approach to improve your focus and take your game to the next level, and that doesn't mean getting stoned like ex-Red Sox hurler Bill "Spaceman" Lee and offering up your drug-induced body as a human L-screen.
Tips from foursquare
Best of Phoenix Winner 2011: Best Batting Cages. A batting range tended with loving care with baseball machines that start slow and top out at 75MPH. There are also slow-pitch softball machines.
These are the worst maintained cages I've ever used. Inadequate number of balls means that you have to wait for the unenthusiastic staff to redistribute them. Not worth the $1.25 per round.
People at the desk has too much attitude !!!
