Businesses come and go but closing up shop with nary a word to customers is kind of a surprise.

So imagine how customers of Triple Play Rockford felt when they showed up to use their indoor batting cages or any of the other services they offered only to find out it's out of business.

Triple Play describes their business as Rockford's "only full-time baseball and softball facility. Committed to provide a quality, clean facility where teams and individuals can use automated batting cages, receive lessons, and purchase their favorite BB/SB gear."

There has been no mention of the closure on their the Triple Play website.

Rockford's Only 'Indoor Batting Cage' Suddenly Closes

The only thing that is giving people the heads up of Triple Play's demise is a piece of masking tape slapped on the door saying "Closed - Out of Business - May 5, 2018"

Triple Play Rockford, 8289 Burden Road Machesney Park, has been open since 2011.


Calls to confirm the closure went unanswered. The number on the Triple Play website has been disconnected.
