General Company FAQ:

Q: Can I visit your shops / why aren't your physical addresses online?
A: We do not operate retail storefronts, only fabrication shops & warehouses. Bottom line, this keeps your prices lower. As a result our insurance policy does not allow clients to visit our shops or offices. However, certain items ARE available for pick-up at our Ohio warehouse location, by appointment. Please inquire for details, or read more About Us.

Q: Can you come to my site for an assessment, and how do your installations work?
A: 95% of our installations originate with a remote assessment using photos & specs. This keeps us cost & time efficient, ensuring we are available for your installation when you need us. In the era of camera-phones & email, we don't feel it's practical or fair to charge you several hundred dollars to do something you can probably do in less than 1 minute. Read more about our Installation Services.

Q: Where do you ship from?
A: We ship as many of our batting cage systems as possible from our fabrication shop & warehouse in Ohio. All other items ship direct from the respective manufacturers. This keeps shipping costs lower, maintains the full warranty, and expedites service.

Q: Are your items in stock?
A: This depends on the item, but typically most are in stock & ship within 1-2 days. Please inquire with us for specifics if your timeline is urgent.

Q: What is your return policy?
A: The manufacturer's return policy & warranty will apply. Please review our detailed terms & conditions for more info.

Q: Do you price-match?
A: Yes, and we also often beat any competitor's price. Just email a link to another website and we will respond within 1 day with a price confirmation.

Hi, I don't quite understand how the Z-channel works to connect your wall padding to the wall, can you please explain? Seth --------------------------------------------------- Hi Seth, Thanks for contacting us about the Z-Channel. This product is an angled channel that needs to be attached to the wall and to the back of the wall padding. As for the quantities, it will depend on the height of your padding. For pads around 6' and taller it would be ideal to run two tracks on the top & bottom. So if your total linear feet is 8'L for instance, you'll actually need to purchase 32 feet of track since you'll need a total of (4) 8' runs. ...
