2-Person Softball and Baseball Hitting Leagues




Six week sessions featuring the Pro-Batter VIdeo Pitching Machine and RIght VIew Pro Filming. Hitting Leagues consist of 2 players with an optional sub player.  Softball and baseball divisions 10U to adult. Multiple days and times are available with games generally scheduled on the same day/time of the week.  A game consists of 7 innings and are scheduled on the half hour.  Scoring will be kept by a THC representative and posted weekly onsite and on our website.

Hitting Leagues provide for the live pitching realism combined with the challenge of competing against other teams that many players and coaches often seek during the off-season.  Combined with RIght VIew Pro Video Analysis filming of selected games, school and travel coaches, players and parents will be able to get access to swing video to better prepare themselves and their players for the upcoming season.
