When it comes to buying indoor batting cage turf, you'll want to research the product to make sure that it's the right fit for your needs. Artificial turf products aren't all equal in quality or in features like durability, pile height, and cushion. As you explore the different batting practice turf options, there are a few different things that you should be thinking about.

How to Choose Quality Astro Turf for Batting Cages

You can identify quality indoor batting cage turf by looking for products that offer the following features:


Perhaps the most important feature to look for in baseball turf is its durability. Batting cages see significant traffic, so you need a turf that can withstand foot traffic and regular use. Plus, the more durable the turf is, the better your batting cages will look over time.

Natural Feel

When players use batting cages for practice, they want an environment that feels as much like a genuine baseball field as possible. This way, their transition back onto the baseball diamond is seamless. We offer a number of indoor batting cage artificial grass products that feel natural underfoot for this exact reason.

Cushion and Comfort

A player spending a few hours in the batting cage will be able to tell if your astro turf for batting cages is well-cushioned or not. We have products with foam and rubber backings to increase comfort so players will want to use your batting cages for as long as possible.

Appropriate Pile Height

A pile height that's too tall for a batting cage will leave players feeling like they're sinking down too far into the surface. Be sure to choose a product with the appropriate pile height for the area that the turf will be used in.
