BATTING CAGE WINTERIZATION GRAVITY FLOW DRAIN SYSTEM

1. Turn power off leading to A/R Conveyor System and pitching machines.
2. Place plastic bag over pitching machine, light boxes and coin boxes, ventilate bottom of bags.
3. Remove fiberglass shroud then disconnect conveyor from hopper and place in area away from rain, snow, sleet etc...
4. Netting System:
The safest method to protect your net and pipe structure would be to untie the rope lanyards at every perimeter pole and let the net hang straight down from the net collar. Another method that would give you a comfortable degree of safety and saves you the job of pulling the net back up in the spring is as follows.
a) Tie a piece of net twine to the metal ring in the net, then tie it off to the horizontal rail.
b) Untie rope lanyards from perimeter vertical pipe, leaving untied end of rope resting on the canopy net. This will hold the net in place, yet the single strand of twine would break loose under a heavy load. Upon opening in the spring you would need to retie the rope lanyards to the vertical pipes.

5. Unplug Microprocessor power cord from outlet and remove all processor cards located in the middle of Microprocessor Box, then place cards in a safe area.
