An indoor baseball, softball, and soccer training facility, The Batter's Box provides athletes of all ages a year-round spot to improve their skills. Balls and bats clack at nine different baseball and softball areas—including six automated batting cages and a bullpen tunnel—where pitchers practice throwing from the stretch and learn what it takes to not be a belly itcher. Under the same roof, a 5,000-square-foot oasis of AstroTurf sprawls before soccer players, and professional instructors dish out coaching tips to individuals or groups during lessons.

Batting cages and pitching lanes are equipped with mounds, and Iron Mike pitching machines lob balls at waiting batters, and both baseball and softball players throw in pitching lanes. Private instruction is overseen by experienced pros, who also oversee boot-camp classes that combine cardio and weight training.
