Frisco’s Harold Bacchus Park boasts the “On-Deck Circle,” a training area that includes four batting cages that pitch both baseball and softball at various speeds controlled by the batter. Additionally, the training area has four tunnels complete with nets. The batting cages are operated on a token system (bring cash for the token machine!) on a first-come, first-served basis when there is not a reservation.
