New Facility In Old Saybrook
Lumber 2 Leather, a premier baseball & softball training company, is excited to announce the opening of our 8,000 sq ft. indoor training facility located at 119 Spencer Plains Rd., Old Saybrook, CT, just a ¼ mile of Exit 66. This facility, led by CT native and former Major League Baseball player Eric Campbell and designed by 78 Sports, will feature 7 60-foot Batting & Pitching tunnels, a dedicated strength and conditioning zone and a pro shop featuring top brands. The facility’s tunnel system is fully retractable to allow for an open 60 x 90-foot turf infield for team practices, clinics, and other indoor instruction.
After completing a 14-year career in the major leagues with the NY Mets, Miami Marlins, Oakland Athletics & Seattle Mariners, Eric returned to Eastern CT to found Lumber 2 Leather, offering private coaching of baseball and softball, sharing his passion and knowledge of the game with more than 500 players over the past two years. Lumber 2 Leather has also hosted multiple training camps and indoor clinics, as well as group training for several local travel and Little League programs. Eric’s remarkable ability to provide clear and concise instruction and create strong relationships with his players has been the catalyst to his success as a private coach. The new facility will take Lumber 2 Leather to the next level, incorporating Eric’s existing training techniques and adding more coaches to his training staff to accommodate baseball and softball pitching instruction, catching coaches and additional hitting coaches. The facility will also provide Lumber 2 Leather’s members with a home base for their daily workouts and direction from Eric to bring them to the next level in their game.
Lumber 2 Leather will provide an exclusive experience for member players to take advantage of individual instruction. Additionally, the facility space can be rented by teams for workouts and practices, and utilized by players on for individual lesson packages.
We are now offering an exclusive pre-sale on our premium memberships; this will not be offered to the general public until late August. Membership will be limited to allow all members maximum use of the space.
