While my friends and I were talking about bringing in baseball cages so that we can enjoy batting… someone brought it in!
Homerun Baseball is located at Pandan Gardens and its the first (?) in Singapore! I came to know of this place when they were having promotions with Groupon & I finally got the chance to visit this place.
For those who thinks this is air conditioned and really comfortable, you are utterly wrong. It’s really pretty humid on a sunny day, but it is a great way to sweat everything out!
Homerun Baseball Singapore has a total of 4 batting lanes (1 softball and 3 baseball; inclusive of a left handed batting lane), and a pitching lane. If you sign up for a member while you are there, you get 16 tokens for $50, if it’s your birthday month, you get an additional 5 tokens. 1 token would allow you bat 15 pitches at the batting lane, or pitch 12 pitches at the pitching lane.
The softball lane goes at 80km/h; the baseball lane goes at 80km/h, 90km/h and 110km/h. The staff’s uniform was really cute, and TV was playing NYY’s game highlights on repeat (no idea why it was on repeat though).
We had the luxury of changing lanes as and when we want it because we were pretty much the only customers that day, until 2 jap boys came along with their father. Those jap boys were so good they were contacting every single pitches that came out! The older brother can do both left and right hand batting. We were soooo impressed.
The staff only gave a brief of what to take note of, so for those who have no idea of how to bat, good luck! Hahahaha!
I had 21 tokens while my friend had 16 tokens that day, and when we purchased it, we thought we would come back another day to finish the tokens. But we were so wrong. We finished all our tokens in 2 hours. After that, both of us were aching so bad from all the batting. XD
& because we are both KBO fans, we wore our favourite team’s jersey. Not a good idea. I was almost suffocating from the jersey. Why so thick?!
The area has got a prawning pond beside it and if we were to present our membership card there, we get a discount. They also have a 7-11 there for those who wanna get any drinks or snacks.
To get there: Take bus 143 or 51 from Jurong East Interchange. Alight outside Homerun Baseball.
