The EDGE, an indoor baseball and softball training facility, has its grand opening on October 14, from 10 AM until Noon.
The opening will include self-guided tours of the facility, demonstrations, a HitTrax Home Run Derby, and the opportunity to watch professional pitchers workout.
“We are excited to show off the facility,” said Todd Clausen, co-founder of The EDGE and director of player development for Inside Edge baseball Academy. “We have worked hard to design and build a highly functioning space and will use the opening festivities to show how it benefits baseball and softball players of all ages and abilities.”
The Edge, located at the intersection of MO-291 and MO-150, is a 10,000 square-foot facility that features training space for pitchers, hitting tunnels, a HitTrax batting simulator, and other amenities aimed at baseball player development. The Edge is operated under a unique partnership between Inside Edge Baseball Academy and Premier Baseball KC. Under the partnership, Premier will use the facility for offering private lessons to the general public, and Inside Edge will utilize the facility and training tools for its academy players.
