View Full Version : Detroit Tigers Batting Practice Experience

08-05-2014, 02:27 PM
I will be participating in the Detroit Tigers batting practice experience at Comerica Park this weekend, where I get to play ball on the field and hit off of former Tiger Dave Rozema...has anyone else done this?

For anyone that has done a fantasy-type experience, do you have any pointers/suggestions you can pass along? I have gone out and bought a couple of wood bats...thinking about picking up my own helmet, already have cleats...any other thoughts?

Thanks for any info!

Hit the batting cages before the weekend :)

Start stretching now. You don't want to pull anything and cut the experience short.

Have fun!

Use a thumb guard like Direct Protect. It will take the sting out of hitting with a wood bat.

Thanks for all the thoughts...keep them coming!

I'm also considering picking up a GoPro camera and mounting it on my helmet/cap...has anyone ever used one while playing sports? Just wondering if the quality is worth the effort. Thanks!
