BATCO was privileged to help the New York Mets last spring training when they were getting ready for major improvements at the facility in Ft. Lucie Florida. In the spring training season of 2019 the Mets used the BATCO batting cage as a temporary cage there in Ft. Lucie and then again in their grand opening in Syracuse New York at the Carrier Dome.
BATCO was privileged and pleased to work with the install and the New York Mets in getting these things accomplished. BATCO would certainly like to thank the Mets for the chance to work with them and show the BATCO quality can be used by the highest level players.
Hopefully when the virus situation and simmer back to playing baseball the Mets will be part of the pennant chase as they were in 2019.
BATCO Batting Cages
Taking BP on the Turf field at the facility
BATCO was pleased to provide to batting cages for South Colonie high school in New York. The high school now has one of the finest training facilities that can be gotten. They went all out in providing two cages for their baseball and softball teams, and even purchased golf divider Nets so that the golf team could get inside and hit balls. This will provide all the players practice time and produce positive results regardless of the weather. Not to forget that they can get a jump on training and starting indoors. I'm sure you all remember the weather on the East Coast last year in 2014.
They did one other thing that rather unique, they created a cover for their cages so when they're stored they will be enclosed both for safety, intrinsic look, and just a good way to do it. They are the first to do this should be congratulated for this step and the extra work they were willing to take on, it turned out very well.

BATCO is always happy to show off facilities and training centers that we were able to help furnish the equipment for. Each one of them has a new and different uniqueness to it but all have something to offer.
The one shown below in pictures,, always the best way to show facilities is located in Pueblo Colorado, Runyan field is the facility's name it contains six fields for all ages from college bound eight-year-olds.

This is a custom cover that a high school in New York State wanted as a third-party add-on.. This was done by high school in New York and BATCO created this cover, as part of our service. It has a giant zipper on it they can be pulled down or pushed up with a stick or long string, the school is going to experiment with that. In the back it just comes down about 3 foot over the arches is not a full 100% cover. But it looks good and is attached at the top so when it's unzipped it is pulled open like curtains. Then use it again to back it up against the wall and pull the cover forward. It has a learning curve but the truth is it turned out very nice.
BATCO has had the privilege of furnishing the new facility in Colorado Springs Colorado called Planet Fast Pitch. It illustrates how versatile and comprehensive BATCO can be to service needs for the player, coach, or facility. We are pleased to furnish all equipment, netting, and even the turf was purchased through BATCO.
Here in Colorado, planet fast pitch is considered the absolute best softball instructional Academy in the country. It is owned and directed by Alan Colglazier- a Hall of Fame softball pitcher, college coach, high school coach, and recognized as one of the premier instructors for fast pitch pitchers.
They recently moved into this bigger building and now are up and running servicing any and all facets.

This notice from the director:
I wanna tell you how happy we are with our batting cage purchase, it is awesome. Our Monroe Woodbury district all star team used it a lot and it paid off with a championship. Unfortunately we could not keep it up and lost before our goal of Williamsport. Also our travel team, Crusaders Baseball Club loves coming over to use it. Below are a couple of pictures. Thanks again.
Monroe NY, LL organization and groups.
I want to share this with you as it is the result of one man's effort. Howard set out to give the kids of Taft one of the best hitting facilities that any city had, and he succeeded. With BATCO's help with built cages, put in turf, stance mats, iron Mike hitting machines, and chain-link the all set of cages and then put them under the lights. It took Howard over two years to get all the help, money and the okays, but I want to tell you this is the best facility any kids had because one man's total effort. If you happen to play against Taft CA, or ever by their you need to see this facility at the baseball park.
