At In The Batters Box, baseball and softball players polish diamond skills such as hitting fastballs, hurling sliders, and fielding hot-off-the-bat grounders. Each cavernous indoor facility houses space dedicated to honing each of these aspects of the game, such as hitting tunnels equipped with pitching machines and multi-purpose turf field for practicing glove-work drills and team pile-ups. In addition to welcoming individuals for solo practice, the facility hosts year-round game-improvement programs, such as summer baseball camps and softball skills clinics.
Housed in a multisport training facility, Milford Sports Center's cadre of professional coaches oversees fitness classes and practice spaces to help athletes groom their games of golf, baseball, and softball. Former Boston Red Sox catcher and two-time MLB All-Star Rich Gedman headlines the Center’s baseball program, which encompasses private and semiprivate lessons and an annual summer camp that teaches little leaguers the basics of hitting, base running, defense, and seed spitting. For more independent training, hitters can crack line drives in the Center’s 11 batting cages, which offer both softball- and baseball-pitching machines.
Piercing drives echo from the Center’s indoor golf-training facilities, where players hone their swings away from the threat of inclement weather or flash-mobbing water hazards. The Full Swing Golf simulator lets clubbers seek out pars on digital replicas of 64 world-famous courses, including Pebble Beach, Bay Harbor, and the Old Course at St. Andrews. Fitness trainers also guide guests through a circuit of up-tempo, rhythmic exercises in Zumba classes.
Doing well in sports is all a matter of practice and golf is no exception. At Milford Sports Center in Glendale, practicing golf is easy and fun.

With a former Oakland Athletic and two ex-minor leaguers on staff, Baseball Unlimited Training Center is a safe haven to help young hitters, pitchers, and fielders take their skills to the next level. The 7,500-square-foot facility houses five separate hitting and pitching tunnels extending to 65 feet in length, suitable for practicing all baseball or softball pitches, except for spitballs or cannonballs. The center hosts ballplayers ranging from little leaguers to college players, who can each take part in camps and clinics or practice individually through batting-cage rentals in 30-minute allotments.
Fresh air fills kids’ lungs as they race through the myriad outdoor activities at Funway Foxboro, powering them through afternoon marathons of inflatable castles and miniature greens. A waterfall cascades over the mini-golf course, which overlooks a pool churning in the wake of bumper boats bouncing off each other as they collide. Conversely, go-karters try to avoid impact with their fellow drivers as they speed along, and pitching machines vainly attempt to sneak baseballs past sluggers at the batting cages. At both the rock-climbing wall and inflatable moon bounce, visitors can conquer gravity without traveling back in time to hand Isaac Newton a hard hat. Everything from Dippin’ Dots to pizza refuels guests at the concession hut, where Funway Foxboro also hosts birthday parties featuring surprise appearances from its mascot, Funway Fox.
Its name sounds suspiciously like the venerable ballpark in Boston, and it's true: you can swing for the fences inside Family Funway. At this Foxboro-based entertainment venue, guests step up to the plate inside slow, medium, and fast batting cages. But that's just a fraction of the fun at their fingertips.
After all, they can also putt their way across an 18-hole miniature golf course and tear around a racetrack behind the wheels of gas-powered go-karts. On warm days, bumper boats equipped with squirt guns provide an easy way to cool off and an even easier way to decide which sibling will inherit the family submarine. In addition to regular visits, Family Funway's collection of activities makes it a great place to host memorable birthday parties and other group outings.
