The space is configured to enable private lessons, team practices, and clinics covering pitching, hitting, catching and fielding. The Yard is also able to host birthday parties – a BIG HIT!

Additionally, The Yard provides a wide variety of other baseball programming, including:
Private lessons
Pitching, hitting, catching and fielding clinics

And More!!
All programs are directed and staffed by Illinois Baseball Academy-trained instructors. All of the instructors were accomplished high school players, and played at the college level. The Yard has approximately 5,000 square feet of space and is outfitted with hitting cages, a pitching tunnel and an open area for fielding work.
