A Note From A Parent:

Subject: Thank You!

Just wanted to take a moment to send a very special thank you for your top notch customer service and dedication to your business.  

We came into your batting cages a couple of weeks ago to give my son some batting practice before his all star game that weekend.   He was in a bit of a hitting slump and we wanted to focus on getting his technique down.  

You didn't hesitate to step right in and give him some pointers and tips for things that you saw that he needed to improve.    Not only did you spend the time doing this, but you even took him into the cages where you spent some time pitching him some balls.  We found him repeating the tips that you mentioned over and over again to himself after leaving your facility.  

The time that you spent with my son is very much appreciated...  You will be happy to know that after you worked with him that night.....


This is a very significant and memorable milestone that my son, and we, will never forget!   Thank you for taking the time and going the extra step.  We have recommended your facility to anyone that we can think of.   We sure do wish you success and best wishes for personal satisfaction.... we can tell that "ball" is in your blood.
