It is widely accepted that Abner Doubleday is the “inventor” or the father of baseball. The cool thing about this fact is that the guy’s name is Abner Doubleday which makes it really easy to remember. If Abner had a more common name, it would be much more difficult to remember, so I think we need to give kudos to his parents for their help in our trivial knowledge.
Baseball is full of trivia and stats. As a matter of fact, I think that 43.2% of the fun from following baseball comes from the hearing and learning about the statistics and trivia. I mean isn't it great to know how well a right handed batter is hitting against a right handed pitcher between 2 and 4 pm when there are no clouds over Pittsburgh. That's baseball.
So today’s deal is your chance to become part of baseball legend. How you ask? The answer is much the same as if you had asked how you get to Carnegie Hall. The answer to both is practice, practice, practice.
You have to practice your baseball skills like batting if you want to become a baseball great. The best place in Bakersfield for that is Riverlakes Batting Range. Riverlakes Batting Range is open 7 days a week year round. They have cage speeds ranging from slow pitch softball to 75 mph baseball. They also offer tunnel, mound and infield rentals. For even more focused training, they also offer private lessons.
Start yourself (or your kid) on the road to the Baseball Hall of Fame, which by the way as an added trivia bonus, is in Cooperstown, New York, by buying today’s super baseball deal. As Lao-tzu said, “The longest journey begins with the first step.” $20 of batting cage tokens, or one hour batting cage rental, for $10 at Riverlakes Batting Range is that first step.
