No more rain outs: Hit a grand slam at Naples newest Hitter’s Club

Batter up! Those with late night batting fever can take a swing in the Hitter’s Club of Florida. The indoor batting facility is a baseball and softball player paradise, complete with five air-conditioned indoor batting cages, a quiet area for homework, and a refreshment area for refueling between practice. Best of all, there’s never any summer rain outs.

For Mathew Ross, a local high school baseball coach and father to four children who are all connected to baseball and softball, his dream of owning a premiere batting training facility finally arrived.

“There’s no place to hit in Naples, so we built this indoor facility for serious players to come to and practice at their convenience,” said Ross, of his facility, which has been open for just eight months.

Ross often provides personalized batting instruction to ball players at Hitter’s Club of Florida. Little leaguers, college prep players and batters of all skill levels are welcome to hone their skills with Ross, or work on techniques with the myriad of pitching stations offered there. At the Hitter’s Club of Florida, serious players can unlock the secrets of determining the strike zone in order to ultimately improve their batting average.

Coach Ross is often inside the facility mentoring aspiring softball and baseball stars in the fundamentals of their batting, pitching and overall game technique. Ross can often be seen coaching girls’ softball players one day, and mentoring college-bound seniors the next. To Ross, it’s a labor of love he thoroughly embraces each day as a dedicated baseball coach, and as a new entrepreneur.

Everyone who arrives at the Hitter’s Club of Florida wants to put extra power into their swing, so there are bats, helmets and plenty of baseballs and softballs to match every player’s preference, and optimize all skill levels.

Want to learn how to throw a backdoor slider or improve your pitch? The Hitter’s Club of Florida also offers a bull pen to practice your pitching skills.

“The great thing about the club is that it is great for people who are serious about their sport. Of course, you can give your arm a rest, but your swing never can,” Ross said. “We also have an Iron Mike 600 ball machine and it throws at various speeds, and within 15 minutes, you can’t breathe after using it.”

Exclusively designed for Hitter’s Club members who sign up to practice there, the Hitter’s Club is already in full swing with new memberships. Says Ross, “It’s always sunny, and 77 degrees at the club.”
