|My nephew punishing the 90km|
In general Japanese batting centers are superior to any cages I have ever been to in the U.S. On my first visit to Japan I went to two batting centers in the Tokyo area, the best one being near Jingu Stadium. Those had full video screens where you could bat against your favorite NPB pitcher, I remember hitting against Daisuke Matsuzaka and Koji Uehara. I don't remember how fast the machines were throwing, but I remember some had a setting that allowed them to throw a variety of breaking balls, which were impossible for me to hit.I have also been to another local batting center in Toyohashi several times. They have about eight machines, but only one is a LED machine. One thing they do have is a 150km machine. It has something similar to an ice cream scoop that holds the ball and whips it at you at 150, and if it's not 150 it's damn close. You definitely want to wear a helmet for that one.
