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!
