Dingerz, A year-round batting and pitching facility officially opened today at 2487 Kaladar Avenue. That’s just east of Bank Street off Brookfield Road.
Here’s how they describe it: “The brand-new, state-of-the-art indoor facility is equipped with two Iron Mike arm-style pitching machines (convertible for softball and hardball), two pitching lanes (set at 46’, 54’ and 60’6”) with JUGS pitching radar capabilities, high-speed video cameras for analysis and a 400 sq. ft. Batting Tee and Soft Toss area. The upper level houses the locker rooms and the ultimate post-training space, the Chalk Talk Room. With comfy couches, bean bag chairs, big-screen TVs and two gaming systems, the Chalk Talk Room is the perfect location for team gatherings, birthday parties, or to review video analysis from the day’s training session.”
