Since Duane and I decided to take Tuesdays off from our toil in the rug mines
we do stuff in Burque that we never normally have time for. Usually its the ol' run round town doing errands, library, petstore, TJS etc. But this Tuesday we wanted something to take the edge off running a retail store....insert google search for batting cage! Duke City Fix came up for another inquiry
a while back and so we strapped on our best local tourist gear and headed south...valley that is.
The Batters Edge
is a old school batting cage located off the pleasant drivin' road Sunset, its right off the road under a large cottonwood tree. The u-shape parking lot surrounds the cage of 4 batting stations. Rates start $2 dollars = 25 pitches - but on Mondays and Tuesdays you get 35 pitches, I knew there was a good reason for taking Tuesdays off! We opted for 7 tokens for $10.00 = 245 pitches! Yes my arms and back are sore today...but totally worth it. Duane practiced right and left sided swinging which was a good technique to avoid muscle fatigue.
I hit a home run!
Afterwards we pulled in to the Old Town Pizza Parlor
and had another good pitcher of Marble
Wheat - Which I hear is 1/2 off on Monday nights!
