Lion's Cage Hitting Facility
LMU baseball's latest project, The Lion's Cage, was completed and opened for use before the start of the 2008 baseball season. The 8,000 square foot training den, which is located down the right field line at Page Stadium, features multiple hitting tunnels, pitching mounds, and a baseball lounge for players equipped with couches, a big-screen television, billiards table and shuffleboard. The cage serves as an all-purpose facility for those associated with LMU baseball.
Inside, the massive space is lined with turf and divided by batting cage nets that can be raised and lowered. The nets and portable pitching mounds allow all players the opportunity to train and practice whether rain or shine. The far side of the training den is used primarily as a players' lounge. The Plexiglass roll-up doors on both sides of the building offer the shade and convenience of hitting indoors, while at the same time allowing players to practice in the comfortable Southern California weather.
