Infield Play: Defense wins ball games! Very few indoor baseball training facilities in the country have the space to focus on defense. We have turf areas inside as well as a full sized infield outside.

Pitching: The staffs focus’ first and foremost on the mechanics of pitching. Proper mechanics lead to consistency and help prevent injury. Advanced players have the opportunity to learn not only proper mechanics but the mental approach to pitching.

Hitting: A major league approach to hitting from former and current professional players. Our staff is brings years of professional baseball & softball experience. Fundamentals of hitting for the beginner all the way up to the mental approach to each and every at bat to advanced player is what we teach.

Catchers: Catching is the most important defensive position in baseball and when it comes to training is often neglected.  Our instructors will help you maximize your talent behind the plate by teaching you the best technique in regards to receiving, blocking, footwork, and throwing.

Our Instructors are not only athletes who have reached the highest levels in the games but who are truly stewards and teachers of the game. Our staff appreciates and values the opportunity to pass on the knowledge that was given to us in our formative years. Our staff brings a passion for the game to all of our students.
