For baseball fans looking for a serious environment to improve their skills, 3-6-5 Baseball Academy offers a 6,000-square-foot, full-turf facility, as well as instructors who have all played at either the collegiate or professional level. Practicing baseball is as American as apple pie or as Dutch as appleflappen, which is why the gooey center of 3-6-5 Baseball Academy contains indoor batting cages, pitching mounds, and the ProBatter Pitching Simulator. The simulator uses video effects to accurately mimic the feeling of batting against a Major League pitcher—without the hassle of cussing matches and an umpire whispering dark secrets in your ear.
