My name is William Heflin, I’m 14 and live in Platte County.
As a baseball player myself, I end up driving to go to a batting cage in Clay County for batting practice. It’s the closest outdoor automated batting cage in our area, and is 30 minutes away from my home by Riverside.
Platte County has dozens of baseball fields, to include the new Creekside Baseball Park, but not a single outdoor automated batting cage. It wouldn’t be too pricey to run, but would attract tons of people as it would be the only one in the county.
I think the Platte County Parks and Recreation Commission should partner with the business community to get this done.
