What to expect at 1st Base Southampton
You have one job. Step into the cage and smash that ball as hard as you can!
The ball is thrown towards you from our pitching machine and you simply have to hit the ball as best you can! Our system does the rest…
Suitable for ages 10+
No Protective Equipment Required
Easy to learn and enjoy!
The same technology used by professional MLB players…although we don’t take it as seriously!
The smart technology tracks the trajectory of the ball after it leaves the bat. It measures velocity, launch angle and a whole host of other metrics.
Your hit is then shown on the big-screens so you can see where the ball would have gone in a real baseball stadium!
There’s so much to do at 1st Base, so even when you’re not in the batting cage, you’ll never be bored! Try out our shuffleboard table, basketball game, foosball, have a bite to eat, or try one of our amazing cocktails!
Hot food and snacks available
Come in for a drink...or three!
Plenty of different sports games

Little gem in the middle of East Street Southampton. My husband and I started our date night here with a few beers and 100 balls each within the hour.
Nice to do something different – it’s a great little set up and the staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended for people that like a bit of action – it’s very therapeutic smashing a few balls 👍🏻
