D-BAT Celebrates Grand Opening

D-BAT Marion will celebrate their opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, February 14 at Noon. The new indoor baseball and softball academy, located at 1783 Red Fox Way, opened last week.

The 20,000 square foot training facility features indoor batting cages for all levels of baseball and softball, camps & clinics, instruction, birthday parties, and a fully stocked pro shop.

General Manager, Jack Shappee, says their core player is ages 6-14 but they have the equipment and capability to cater to high school and college players as well.

“Our goal is to provide a quality teaching environment with professional instruction to enhance the baseball and softball experience for players at all levels,” Shappee said. “D-BAT will be eastern Iowa's premier baseball and softball training center and we're excited to make Marion home.”
