About Batters Box

The Batter’s Box is a baseball and softball training facility catering to all talent levels of the game. We are the oldest facility in Connecticut with a skilled staff whose ability to teach is unmatched in the business.

We offer 5 batting cages, 3 pitching mounds, a soft toss area and a 7,500 sq ft fielding area all within our 11,000 square foot facility.

Over the past 30 years, we have instructed players in all phases of the game. The game of baseball played correctly is not easy. We stress MENTAL FOCUS as well as proper mechanics. We begin with the basics at all levels, demand concentration and start the development of the player’s WORK ETHIC. It's important for the player and parent to understand that swinging the bat at home or working on throwing mechanics in the mirror is as important as taking the actual lessons. We teach the meaning of conscientious work as compared to just swinging the bat. We continue to push this lesson after lesson.

The Batter's Box is also the home of the Connecticut Bombers. The Connecticut Bombers Baseball Club, which began in 1998, boasts many of the top travel teams in the Northeast for age brackets 10-18.

Our one on one lessons and clinics offer the best baseball and softball training in the state. Our pro, collegiate and high school staff provide the best training possible for hitting, pitching and catching. Our programs are geared toward both the competitive as well as the recreational player. Our training has developed thousands of players and has sent many to top colleges and universities on scholarships each year.

Many ballplayers who have trained at the Batter’s Box have gone on to play at some of the nations top colleges and universities as well as professionally.

“I've been involved with the Box for a number of years now, and it is safe to say that I owe a large portion of the player I am today to the staff of the Batter's Box and the CT Bombers in general. Great place that truly cares about your development as a player, and it is safe to say that the staff has not only made me a better player, but a better person as well. I would absolutely recommend having your child be a part of the CT Bombers program”

“My son has learned more from Bob Turcio about the game of baseball in a few months than he's learned in the last decade from other coaches I would recommend the batter’s box to anyone looking to better their child's baseball skills at any level. Bob and his staff coach baseball and teach life skills like responsibility, integrity and teamwork.”

“I've been hitting at the batter's box since I was 10 years old. I've done camps, clinics, and private lessons that have focused on all facets of the game. There is nobody in the area that is more knowledgeable about the game of baseball than Bob Turcio, and you will learn a lot from him in a private lesson. The facility is one of the best in the state. The size of it allows you to not only hit, but pull the cages back and practice defense. I recommend going to the batter's box for any baseball/softball player that needs a place to get their work in”

“I spent countless hours at the Batter's Box between ages 12 and 20, and theres no doubt that it--along with the dedicated Bombers coaching staff--made me the player I became, and helped shape the man I am today”

“My son continues to become a stronger and more focused baseball player under the instruction of the highly skilled and knowledgeable coaches at Batter's Box. The structure and one on one instruction he receives is invaluable. He has learned what it means to truly be a part of a team. I highly recommend this baseball program as it is truly one of the best! Thank you!”

“My son has been in the Bomber organization since he was 9. He's now 15 and I could not be happier with his development. Bob Turcio and his staff instill discipline and pushes each kid to excel and expand their comfort zone.”
