Welcome to The Batter's Box!


The Batter's Box is a baseball and softball training facility that has been located at 21 Marne Street in Hamden, CT since 1989. We are the oldest facility in Connecticut and 
  offer an 11,000 sq ft facility, which includes 5 Batting Cages, 3 Pitching Mounds and a 7,500 sq ft. fielding area. The Batter's Box is also home to the Connecticut Bombers Travel Baseball Club. Many of the top players to ever play in the state of Connecticut have trained and played at the Batter's Box, including current Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock.

 

Our one on one lessons and clinics offer the best baseball and softball training in the state. Our pro, collegiate and high school staff provide the best training possible for hitting, pitching and catching. Our programs are geared toward both the competitive as well as the recreational player. Our training has developed thousands of players and has sent many on to college on scholarships each year.

THE CONNECTICUT BOMBERS

 

The Connecticut Bombers Baseball Club is committed to encouraging young players in their pursuit of both athletic and personal growth by providing a learning environment that emphasizes the spirit of competitiveness and good sportsmanship. We emphasize and seek to build work ethic, camaraderie and dedication in each one of our players, so that they improve as ballplayers and more importantly, as individuals.


Myths and Truths of Travel Baseball


One of the biggest challenges we face in running a travel baseball program is the education of parents. Parents need to understand that all travel baseball programs are not the same, all coaching is not the same and all tournaments are not the same.

New travel clubs are forming at an alarming rate, and parents need to understand the differences so they can place their son or daughter in the most beneficial program. If you are looking for the training, coaching, schedule and discipline necessary to make your son or daughter the best player they can be, there are very few options in Connecticut. With this in mind, the most important thing to consider is your ROI, or return on your investment. If you plan on spending money for your child to participate in a sports program, your investment MUST provide them with the best opportunity to be recruited and  compete at the collegiate level..

 The first key to a successful program is the coaching staff. The top programs are the ones  whose coaches develop players through  hard work and discipline. Our coaches are equal or better than you will find in any college program. In fact, many of the facilities in Connecticut have staff that either played or coached for the Bombers at some point in their careers. Parents need to research which programs send players to top colleges and universities on a consistent basis. The  top programs develop their players so that they make an impact in college in their freshman year.

 Competition is the next key to determining the right program for your son or daughter.  Many programs are based on how much they win which simply means that they enter low end tournaments to get trophies and publicity. If players are not competing against teams that can beat them then it is useless and the trophy is just a false sense of accomplishment. It makes the players think they can play but when it’s time to play against the top teams more often then not they fail. When those players go onto college they cannot compete because they were never sufficiently challenged.

The Connecticut Bombers have never put a player on our lists of colleges that have not trained with us for years. Most of our players return 100% on their investment in college PROVIDING they follow the program set up for them.   We not only will help them through the collegiate selection process, we will track their progress throughout their collegiate careers as well. We also will continue training them should they be fortunate enough to play professionally. Our track record in putting players in top schools is unmatched by any other program that claims to develop players. Remember, WE DO NOT RECRUIT PLAYERS, WE DEVELOP THEM. 

                                   

                                 

 "Remember... BASEBALL should be FUN. It is more fun when you do well. To do well, you have to work HARD. There is no way around it."
