The Ballyard has a regulation turfed rubber mound for pitching instruction.  Great for balance and accuracy.   Good for all ages since tunnel with mound can handle 40' to 60' 6." You can bring a catcher or throw into a net with the strike zone highlighted.

The Ballyard also has a large area for fielding, throwing and sliding practice.  Perfect for flip drills, lead-off instruction,  and point and throw mechanics.  Also good for team instruction or meetings.

Mark Hayward offers private one-on-one lessons covering all aspects of hitting.   He pitches overhand in the tunnel for  game situation batting practice.  He also emphasizes mechanics off the tee.
