The original Hardball Training Center opened in Miami in 1993 with the goal of preparing its players both physically and mentally to help develop the winning attitude and skills necessary for success. Hardball (New York), which includes 16,000 square feet of climate-controlled indoor space, opened in Elmsford in 2008. The center is equipped with batting cages, pitching tunnels, an academic center, a pro shop, and utility space for use by various sports including baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey. Through a relationship with Velocity Sports Performance, the Hardball Training Center offers a complete, year-round "total conditioning" program. Hardball’s indoor, climate-controlled batting cages are equipped with state-of-the-art pitching machines delivering 50 mph to 85 mph pitches to accommodate all levels of instruction or practice. They are available for individuals, teams, or groups and can be reserved in advance. The company offers private instruction for the development of proper pitching, hitting, and defensive mechanics, along with drills and strategy. Camps, clinics, memberships, and birthday parties are offered.
