Indoor cages keep batters sharp
SYCAMORE – Gary Tadd was looking for a way to help his daughter Haley, a freshman at DeKalb High School, keep her softball skills sharp in the off-season.
“My daughter wanted to play softball, and I had that empty unit over there so I found a company in Washington state that made the netting,” he said. “I also found a company that made turf on the east coast.”
With the addition of two pitching machines, Tadd, the owner of Pinkston-Tadd Roofing in Sycamore, converted his empty warehouse space on Prairie Drive into a state-of-the-art indoor batting facility, with two tunnels where batters can face a machine or balls thrown by a coach or teammate, workout stations and an upper-level viewing room. While he made the facility to benefit Haley and her teammates on the DeKalb Hurricanes, he is now opening it to the public.
