Rhino Baseball Wisconsin is excited to announce the opening of it's brand new 15,000 SF indoor training facility. 

This new home to our players will be a tool to improve on all aspects of our players games and futures.

Being a private facility, Rhino players can access the facility using the thumb scanner to get extra work in during non-scheduled practice times. 

Retracting the hitting cages allows for full infield work and live hitting as well. Having an indoor facility in the midwest is also crucial in the recruiting aspect of a player because we can now shoot recruiting videos during the offseason for Rhino players. 

Always trying to stay up to date on new technology to help our players improve, the new Wisconsin facility also has a Zepp Hitting Lab which has a flat screen TV to break down player's swings. 

There is also a speed, strength and agility room which are players will receive professional training during workouts to get bigger, stronger and faster. 

We could not be more excited to offer such a fantastic facility to our players in Wisconsin. Being able to utilize their new home will only help to continue to get them to be the best baseball players they can be.
