ABOUT HARDBALL NY

The Original Hardball Training Center opened in Miami, Florida in 1993 with the goal of preparing its players both physically and mentally to help develop the winning attitude and skills necessary for success. In the winter of 2008, Hardball (New York) was established in Elmsford, New York, grounded in the same philosophies to become"Where the Student-Athlete Trains".

 

The Hardball Training Center includes 9,000 square feet of climate-controlled indoor space. It is equipped with batting cages, pitching tunnels, and utility space .

Our indoor, climate-controlled batting cages are available for individuals, teams or groups and can be reserved in advance. Private instruction for the development of proper pitching, hitting, and defensive mechanics, along with drills and strategy is available with our staff of top instructors as part of our comprehensive program.

 

Hardball camps and clinics are offered throughout the year, including summer camps and holiday breaks. Baseball and Softball players are coached by professional instructors, each of whom has achieved collegiate and/or professional level success. With plenty of fun and hard work, groups will focus on developing proper pitching, catching, hitting, and fielding mechanics. We strive to improve each player's game, sportsmanship and leadership skills.
