Director of Softball: Christina Aulbach

The Nook Softball Center offers eight independent instructional areas, eight indoor batting cages, four indoor pitching lanes, an additional 8,000 square feet of drill space and our Nook Diamond – a full-sized softball infield with room for outfielders (approximately 125’ down the left and right field lines and 150’ in center, with a 15’ wall). The Nook Diamond has dugouts, a scoreboard and two levels of seating. The Nook creates a vibrant softball atmosphere that exudes energy and encourages great play!

Personal or Group Pitching Lessons

Spooky Nook Softball offers pitching lessons for beginner to advanced level pitchers. Nook Softball Pitching Coach Sam Derr works with pitchers individually or in small group settings. Sam played collegiate softball at Kutztown University for two years, where she was named the NCAA Division II Pitcher of the Year in 2012. Sam then transferred to Lebanon Valley College (LVC), where she collected many additional athletic and academic accolades to finish out her playing career. In addition to coaching at The Nook, Sam is also on the coaching staff at Warwick High School, her alma mater. Whether you would like to learn how to pitch and build strong mechanics or you are looking to increase your velocity and accuracy, Sam can help you achieve your pitching goals. Pitchers are required to bring their own catcher to each pitching lesson.
