Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can anyone come in and use the batting cages?
YES! Although we have many teams practicing in our facility and do
offer professional instruction, Thunder Stix is open to the public. In
fact, Thunder Stix is a great place to come in and get some batting
practice or to just have a good time testing your skills against the
Ultimate Trainer 2000 pitching machine!

Q. What are Tunnel Rentals?
Tunnels are the area where players or teams can do live pitching /
hitting / throwing and fielding. The tunnel area is fully netted for
safety and allows you to practice any skill just as you could on an
outdoor field..with the exception of pop ups. In our tunnel area, you
can rent one of our ATEC machines that allows you to practice hitting
that 90mph fastball or one of the most wicked curveballs you'll ever
see! You can also rent a pitching mound and practice throwing from a
regulation size college / pro-mound. Tunnel rates are $30 / half hour;
$50 / hour per tunnel (We have 4 tunnels in the facility)!!
Q. Do the cages have Slow Pitch Softball?
Absolutely! All of our cages do EVERYTHING!! No waiting in line for
the Slow Pitch machine or the 80 mph fastball machine. Every cage is
user programmable. YOU punch in what you want to hit (Baseball or
Softball) AND what speed you want to "attempt" to hit.
Q. Do I have to have my own bat and helmet?
No. If you don't have your own equipment, we keep a few bats and
helmets in the facility that you can use free of charge. For those of
you with your own equipment, you'll be glad to know that Thunder Stix
uses "Sting Free" pitching machine balls. You don't have to worry about
denting that $300 bat by hitting rock-hard pitching machine balls that
most batting cages use.
