The Mastodon™ batting cage frame system includes 8.625″ outside diameter structural steel pipes coated with the same finish used on the Alaska Pipeline. It has fewer components, and offers free and clear spans up to 85′ in either direction – without significant sag. The poles come completely prepared to accept our tensioning hardware. The cable tensioning system ensures that your net will hang properly and needs no special tools.

- Structural Steel Poles with Corrosion Resistant Coating

Corrosion Resistant Coating
All poles are corrosion dipped, finished with STRYK 5388, and sealed with a welded top cap preventing internal corrosion. STRYK 5388 forms a solid coating which bonds to the substrate, preventing corrosion even if the coating is scratched or damaged. STRYK 5388 is a thick rust-inhibitive coating used on the Alaska pipeline with a high degree of impermeability to moisture. The finish remains highly flexible and elastic in extreme temperatures. It will not support fungal growth in humid or water-immersed environments or crack in extreme weather conditions.
Cable Tensioning System
Our cable tensioning system uses galvanized hardware including 3/16" aircraft cable, cable clamps, thimble eye nuts, eye bolts, institutional grade threaded rod, and curved washers. In order to achieve the proper cable tension, the poles in the system shown have 11.5' exposed, and approximately 4.5' in the ground. There are some custom options available, such as larger diameter cable (for larger structures) - call for more information and additional pricing.
Multi Stall Mastodon™
Two Mastodon™ batting cages side by side sharing the center poles. With this system, you save money on the cost of materials, labor, and shipping. Each cage is two feet apart so that balls from one cage will not injure players in another cage. Additional configurations available by calling 1.800.463.6865 (Triple, Quad, etc). All of the information listed above applies to this option.
I knew this beast would be substantial when I ordered it but holy smokes! This will be still be standing long after I'm pushing up daisies. I expected the poles to flex in bit when we tightened the cables, but if they did flex, it was too minor to notice. Imagine a telephone pole made of steel, way overbuilt, complete overkill...but I'll never have to replace it!
The Mastodon has a 20 year warranty on the poles. The netting has 5 year warranty.
Hope this helps!
Is there a warranty on the framing system for this cage? I imagine it's going to last forever but just checking.
