Dee Gordon’s Career

If you are unfamiliar with Dee Gordon and his history as a baseball player, let’s get you caught up. Dee began his MLB career in 2011 as a shortstop and second baseman with the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

In 2015, he started with the Miami Marlins as a second baseman, where he stood out as a player, with a .333 BA, 205 total hits, and 58 stolen bases. He led the NL in all three of those categories, becoming the first player to lead in both batting average and stolen bases since the legendary Jackie Robinson. Throughout the 2010s, Dee Gordon stole a total of 330 bases, the most of any MLB player. 

In 2017, he started with the Seattle Mariners. When he was traded to the Mariners, his position was switched from second base to center field, until a teammate’s suspension brought him back to second base. As a center fielder, his speed allowed him to set up closer than the average fielder. In addition, in the past year, he had the fastest average time from home plate to first base of all MLB second basemen. It’s obvious that Dee Gordon isn’t slowing down anytime soon. 

Rude American’s Inflatable Batting Cage

To become the best and to stay active in the offseason, players continue practicing and honing their skills. The most convenient way to do this is to set up an inflatable batting cage at your own residence. Dee Gordon knows this, and that’s why he’s chosen the best inflatable batting cage on the market – ours. 

Our Inflatable Batting Cages are both durable and portable. We designed them with convenience in mind. Because our commercial-grade Inflatable Batting Cages are not made like bounce houses with continual blowing air, you can keep them up for days at a time. These heat-sealed batting cages inflate in just 10 minutes and once inflated, you simply replace the valve and turn off the pump. The heat seal means that you can leave it inflated for an hour or for several days if you’d like. Once done simply deflate, roll up and put away. These cages are made of top-quality materials and are very durable.

Each batting cage is 20 feet long and you can easily add additional 20-foot sections to them to make a 60-foot or 80-foot tunnel as well. The Inflatable Batting Cage from Rude American USA is the answer for every organization that needs extra cage facilities or would like to bring their cage with them on the road, and for every individual who wants a quality practice experience at their own home.
