24-hour batting cage opens in Milledgeville

Four baseball and softball dads started a indoor 24-hour batting cage in Milledgeville. They say it's the first of it's kind in the area and want people to be able to practice whenever they can.

A little rain didn't stop the Georgia Force 16 and under softball team from practicing. On Saturday they played indoors for the first time at Milledgeville's "Between the Lines" batting cage that opened in early April.

Coach Walter Greene says he likes that it's open 24 hours a day and is local. "There's never been anything like this really here in Milledgeville. And I know a lot of people they go to McDonough, they go to Marietta, they go to Byron, Warner Robins, Covington," said Greene.

Four baseball and softball dads, who coach, pooled their money together to open it. "We have four cages set up right now 70-footer, two 55s, and a 35 footer," said Spencer Bass, co-owner.
