A new indoor baseball training facility has opened at Reston Station.
The 6,000-square-foot facility, known as Reston Bullpen, is a training facility for local little league and high school teams. It’s located at 1901 Reston Metro Plaza.
Comstock, the developer of Reston Station, worked with Bradley Baseball Academia, a baseball training school, to design the facility. Local teams can schedule practice times for individual and team practice, conditioning clinics and skill drills for free.
The facility includes several pitching and batting tunnels as well as a weight and aerobics gym.
“Playing youth baseball and softball teaches some of life’s greatest lessons to young people,” said Timothy J. Steffan, executive vice president of Development and Asset Management at Comstock, wrote in a statement. “Providing a facility of this quality to youth house league and public school players that typically do not have access to such facilities, not only allows them an opportunity to improve their game, but also advance their understanding of teamwork and how to set and achieve goals.”
For now, teams can make reservations in 60-to-90-minute intervals. Bradley Baseball Academia has moved its offices to the property and will host free coaching clinics for teams.
“My staff and I are excited to be a part of this community endeavor and look forward to running our headquarters and programming out of the facility,” said Andy Bradley, Founder and Executive Director of Bradley Baseball Academia.
Masks and social distancing are required. The facility is also requiring temperature checks and health screenings.
