If you have been following Rude American USA for any amount of time, you may be familiar with the inflatable cages that we manufacture. What you may not be familiar with, however, is the fact that they can be used for more than just baseball! That’s right, while our inflatable cages are geared towards baseball batting practice, they serve many purposes, and can give dad a place to practice his golf swing as well! Let’s check out the ways that these can be used for both sports, and how they may just be the answer to all your baseball and golf practice woes. 


Before we dive into the perks these cages provide for baseball and golf, let’s take a closer look at what exactly the cages are. Whether you are planning on hitting home runs, or driving the golf ball far down the green, the 20 foot length of these inflatable cages should give you plenty of space. If for some reason you need more room to practice, you can connect multiple cages together to create the length of your choosing. They are 17 feet wide and 12 feet high, so there’s no cramping your swing style. 

In addition to being customizable in length, these cages are extremely convenient. Since they are inflatable, there are no metal or pvc pipes to worry about transporting and setting up. Use the included pump to inflate within 10 minutes and easily move to wherever you feel like practicing. Unlike heavy metal cages, you don’t need a whole team of players to set these up, move them around, and tear them down. This convenience allows you to utilize these cages at your own home as well! 

Not only are these cages versatile, convenient, and portable, they are made with high-quality materials and designed to be extremely durable. Whatever sport you plan on practicing in them, they are made to withstand the test of time. We utilize American-made netting and heat-seal them so no continual blowing air is required. Whether it is just you getting some practice in at home, or you plan on using this inflatable cage for multiple people or an entire team, you can expect it to last for a long time. 


Now that we’ve gone over just how awesome these inflatable cages are, we can talk about how you can use them for your baseball practice! While it’s pretty self-explanatory that all you need to do is set up the cage and start swinging, we have compiled a couple of tips to take your batting skills to the next level and make the most of your batting practice time. First, adjust where you are aiming. Home runs are created with a combination of lift and distance. To cultivate this in your swing, do not get in the habit of aiming for the back of the cage, but instead for the top of it. This will help you develop the lift that is needed to carry the ball a further distance in real-world scenarios. 

Another thing to keep in mind is your form. Just because you are hitting a couple of pitches in a cage, does not mean you should take shortcuts with your stance or your swing. Doing so can create a bad habit that is hard to shake once you actually step up to home plate. It can also result in injuring yourself since you are not taking the same care and precautions that you typically do. 


As we mentioned previously, our inflatable cages are not only good for baseball, they’re great for golf! We know that packing up and heading to a golf course every time you want to practice your swing isn’t always feasible. Having a practice facility in your own yard in the form of an inflatable cage cuts down on your commute time, giving you the ability to practice whenever you have a few minutes free. The Inflatable Golf Driving Range by Rude American offers golfers a quality driving net that can be used outdoors or inside as an indoor golf range. This is the perfect solution for individual golfers and organizations who are looking for an alternative to country clubs and traditional driving ranges. This is a convenient and cost effective way to practice driving golf balls in a limited space. Not everyone has the time to visit a golf course or a driving range on a daily basis. These may be inaccessible or just too crowded. Instead, we’ve created a solution for driving golf balls from the comfort of your backyard or anywhere for that matter.

Whether you are looking to perfect your batting percentage, or want to make more holes in one, our inflatable cages are the answer to all your practice woes. Get your Golf Range or your Batting Cage today!
