North Shore Baseball Academy
For those looking for a little more zip on the fastball, consistency with the glove or power at the plate, North Shore Baseball Academy's instructors offer individualized training to players looking to get ahead. With 12 trainers, some of whom have played professionally, North Shore provides lessons in a variety of areas. For those who simply need repetition, North Shore's batting cage and indoor pitching mound area are available to rent. Clinics and camps are run periodically throughout the year, and North Shore is also a hot-spot for baseball-themed birthday parties.
