In July of 2021, Victory traveled to Peabody High School in Trenton, Tennessee. Here, the team installed a large, fully-automatic Hands Free Batting Cage within their new athletic building. This cage is 70 feet long by 28 feet wide, and is outfitted with a fully automatic divider curtain. Such a divider operates on a separate winch system than the rest of the cage so that the user is able to fully utilize the space of the batting cage if desired. This system is equipped with #60-gauge netting, which is thicker and more durable to heavier usage than the standard #36-gauge netting.

All of Victory’s cages come with various safety features, the primary being the winch, which has an automatic breaking system in case of loss of power or other emergencies. However, we also install a curtain lock at the end of our driveline system to stop the cage from lowering in case of winch failure, consequently providing customers with superior reassurance on the safety and reliability of their system. This project’s specific driveline structure, which, when attached to the winch is what operates the cage, was designed to go through the existing beam structure of the building in order to maximize space. Consequently, the cage was tight to the wall, allowing for other events to take place while the cage is in use. All in all, Victory is happy to have fabricated and installed an elite addition to the district’s athletic facilities!
