Winter baseball league starting up in January

There will be a hitters and fielding baseball league at The10 Sports Centre Dome in Long Lake this January.

The league is open to ages 14 to 18, and will take place Sunday mornings starting at 10 a.m. up until noon.

The following dates have been secured by Team MaxBat and its staff to work with players – Jan. 11, 25; Feb. 1, 8, 22; and March 1. The spring showcase will be March 8.

This league is designed to train and help players throughout the winter months and prepare them for the upcoming season.

The five-tools of baseball will be stressed at all times.

These are live games with training and hitting at the same time inside a dome.

This is a hitters/fielders league, and college, town team, and ex-pro pitchers are brought in to face the hitters every Sunday morning.

The field is normal dimensions except for the fence – restricted flight balls are used so play can be live in the dome.
