"Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world"  - Babe Ruth

 WELCOME to the Holden Indoor Training (HIT) Center at the CRA in Holden, Massachusetts.  Our state-of-the-art 4000 sq. ft. facility offers several full length baseball batting and pitching tunnels with retractable netting, enabling full use of the training space for in-fielding drills and group instruction.   Individual lanes may be reserved as well as the entire facility allowing the space to be used by many local youth sports organizations throughout the year.  Come train with us and watch your child's confidence in "America's Pastime" soar!

WINTER CLINICS!!!


Back again, our 3-day baseball skills clinics will be offered from Tuesday 12/26/17 to Thursday 12/28/17 for two age groups.  Ages 7 to 9 will meet each day from 8:30-10:00 am, and ages 10 to 12 will meet each day from 10:00-11:30 am.  The baseball skills clinics will be led by Mr. Todd Smith, long-time instructor, coach, and Holden Baseball member.  Cost per player is $95.00 for each 3-day clinic.  The clinics will be capped at approximately 20 students per age group, and are expected to sell out quickly.  

Also, two different 3-day softball skills clinics  are being offered during December’s school vacation week.  The general skills clinic (12/26/17-12/28/17, 12:30PM to 2:00PM) will teach the proper fundamentals and mechanics of hitting, throwing, and fielding.  The catchers clinic (12/26/17-12/28/17, 2:00PM to 3:30PM) will teach the proper mechanics and techniques for the stance, footwork, blocking, throwing and fielding, all specific to the position of catcher.  The softball skills sessions will be led by Mr. George Richardson, long-time softball instructor who has taught at the HIT Center every year since it opened.  Cost of each softball clinic is just $95. Space is limited, so please reserve your spot today.  

 Those interested in any of our December clinics from 12/26/17 to 12/28/17 (snow date: 12/29/17) can register by clicking the following link and then selecting the “Clinics” tab at the top of the page:
