Fancy yourself a champion batter? Or just wanna let loose some pent-up angst? The batting cage is your answer!
Thanks to the long-term American presence in Korea, baseball has become the hottest sport over the past 50 years and most neighbourhoods have a batting cage where you can step up to the plate and pit yourself against a robotic pitcher firing at 90km/h or 100km/h.
It usually costs 1,000 won or 2,000 won. At Insadong, for example, it’s 2,000 won for 20 balls. There’s usually a note-changing machine, but in case there isn’t, bring some loose change (1,000 notes and 500 coins).
