Lethbridge Hit Trax
Gary Paukert asked me to post this info about the Lethbridge Hit Trax at YQL Sluggers.
For those that don’t know, HitTrax is a batting cage with a sensor that tells you the launch angle and velocity of your hit and records it as a hit or an out. Down there they have a cage with it (as does Hitz in Aldersyde) and have team competitions during winter through Terry Bryce.
Your Team competes against other teams that have joined up for that particular day. Just like real games, teams with the most runs are the winners. If everyone hits well you can make to to the final playoff game. It looks easy, but those little computer generated players in the field don’t make many errors, so hit wisely !!
Gary already has a team of 4 for December 9th but if more people are interested we can put together additional teams of 4.
Generally it starts around 11:00am and there is lots of good food and beer. It typically Runs for a few hours so with travel it takes up most of a Saturday.
It’s a great way to keep the ol’ swing in shape and beats sitting on the couch watching it snow.
Other dates are ,
Jan 20th, Feb 17th, Mar 9th and Apr 13th.

Thanks Gary, Thats great info.
And as someone that has been there, I can confirm that it is a lot of fun and the competition is great. And you’re bound to run into someone that you know.
