In Flagstaff Arizona, there is one of the finest facilities around. Jim and his staff taken converted indoor tennis courts, and converted into a facility that now has seven lanes for hitting with iron Mike pitching machines, and two lanes for live pitching/hitting.  The lanes are set up for the baseball player, softball player.  One more thing about the lanes they are 16 foot high which is about 4 foot above the normal because Jim wanted to be able to cater to the slow pitch player, which he has done admirably.

This has to be one of the biggest and best that BATCO never been part of, furnishing all the iron Mike's, netting, pitching mounds, and turf products.  We are extremely proud of this facility is now been open about three years.  

Jim and his staff host many events there, offer instruction, offer team rentals for year-round training, and certainly individual player development from the young the  to the most proficient.  All located under one of the biggest plastic free span buildings will ever have the privilege to be in.   

Please visit Jim, Beth entire staff at the Flagstaff Athletic Club, and I should add here that this is a complete facility from swimming, basketball, personal training, exercise rooms to the ultimate.
