October, 2014


Hello In The Zone Baseball Club friends …


Proudly, we are beginning our 6th year of operation next month, and are extremely excited to announce some great news for all of you and for our Newport Junior Gulls families.


On December 1, 2014, we will be opening the doors at our new location on Brayton Point Rd. in Somerset, MA.  We have enjoyed a great relationship with our landlord here in Fall River, and through mutually beneficial negotiations have elected to vacate our space on Airport Road, and design and construct a facility that we feel is even better for our passionate baseball and softball players and families.  Although we have received many compliments over the last 5 years on ITZ being the nicest facility in the area, we are proud to say that the new location will be an even bigger and better training environment.


Located just minutes off of Interstate 195 and Rt 6, we feel we will be better positioned geographically to offer our services to a larger number of people west of Fall River, while maintaining our customer base in the Fall River area.  It significantly shortens the commute for our growing base of players in the South County, Warwick/Cranston and Providence areas.  For those north of ITZ now, the additional commute is merely 7 minutes south on Rt 79, door to door.


Using the knowledge we have gained of individual and team preferences over our 5 years, we will be constructing a new cage system, which will be multifunctional for different uses, and will accommodate team practices in a separated environment.  We are focusing on increased lighting, safety measures and comfort as we feel this part of the plan is crucial to a proper training environment.  The facility we are taking on is 40% larger than our current facility, and we are finalizing negotiations with a popular sport specific training  entity that specializes in speed, agility, strength and conditioning training for baseball and softball athletes, as well as general fitness and nutritional expertise. This is a major component of development that we know will be an attraction for the serious athlete and will use in excess of 3,600 square feet.  Our facility will contain both women and men’s locker rooms, complete with showers and lockers for our customers as well as the fitness component of the facility.  We will announce more on this component as details are finalized.  Of course, as an authorized dealer for all major brands we will still offer high quality team uniforms, team and corporate apparel, equipment and accessories to outfit athletes of all ages.


Finally, we will maintain our professional staff of instructors, as well as adding on new names that will be immediately recognized for their experience and success in the game, both collegiately and professionally. 


There is no better place to get better….period.


We look forward to getting more information to you as we continue to prepare for this exciting move.  We are grateful to all of you that have called In The Zone Baseball Club your home for training over the years, and assure you we are committed to you…our customers and friends.  Thank you sincerely for your continued confidence and support.
