The Great Lakes Sports Hub is a brand new, state-of-the-art indoor baseball and softball training facility scheduled to break ground in March of 2021.

We will host tryouts in July and begin play in the fall of 2021. If you have any questions, or are interested in joining the Batbusters – Indiana team as a coach or player, please contact any of our board members.
