Coach Ryan Pryor is hosting a grand opening celebration of the Pryor Baseball Farm — an event where friends, family, leagues and members of the media can visit the outdoor training farm.
The baseball school is intended to be a place where young athletes can bridge the skill gap to pursue their dreams of reaching high levels within baseball and softball.
The grand opening is set for Oct. 26 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a news release about the celebration.
Pryor is the former varsity assistant coach at Wiregrass Ranch High School and a varsity assistant at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School. Both programs enjoyed considerable success during his work there. A number of Pryor’s former players are now playing on Major League teams.
The baseball school is situated on a 5-acre-plus site, off Old Pasco Road and Hadlock Drive, at 8931 Elkmont Lane in Wesley Chapel.
The facility, called the “Farm” for short, includes:
- Hitting stables with six batting cages and machines
- Pitching pens with five bullpens
- The Julie Parker drill field
- Golf-style batting Tee ranges (over pond)
- Full video evaluations
- Outfield range
- Long-toss throwing lanes, up to 300 feet
- Practice drill fields
