Talk:Proposed features/Batting cage
In general sport tags are attributive, i.e., they only provide information about an object already described by other tags. The closest analogy is leisure=pitch with sport=cricket_nets. I'm not sure how complete the analogy might be (although my only experience of both baseball & cricket in school were in a batting cage and nets respectively. Furthermore batting_cage does not tell data consumers unfamiliar with baseball that it is a baseball-related term.
I would look at some of the following options:
- Tags to map the actual cage structure (e.g., man_made or barrier). Basically the cage is a fence surrounding
- A leisure tag to describe the area of the cage (see the cricket net analogy) or just use leisure=batting_cage with sport=baseball
- Canvas the talk-us mailing list for opinions.
Though I'm not entirely sure that cricket nets are still even acceptable.
