Automated Batting Cages, Inc. (ABC) began in 1973 with a mission to create the standard for state-of-the-art batting cages and equipment. Our revolutionary wheel-style pitching machines, dimpled balls, and conveyor system helped to differentiate ABC, but they’re just the beginning. We’ve spent decades perfecting our technical support program, so we can help with any problem that may arise. And our safety operations are industry standard as well.

We believe in supporting those with a love for the game and a passion for sport. The high schoolers in the early hours perfecting their form swing after swing in the hopes of a college scholarship. The amusement park enthusiasts-turned-amateurs who want to give this great sport a go. The children holding a bat for the first time with helmets and knee pads that they’ll soon grow out of. And even the sports bar pro who misses being in the swing of things. These are the people who make ABC what it is and keep us striving for batting cage innovation.
