Thank you for visiting the online home of D-BAT Allen!
D-BAT was founded in 1998 and is considered by many to be one of the premier baseball and softball training organizations in the country. The original D-BAT facility was located in North Dallas (Addison) with two employees – Cade and Kyle Griffis. As a former collegiate and professional baseball player, Cade has a core belief that each player plays a different game and should be taught to maximize his or her talents to suit their game.
In June, 2011, D-BAT opened a new training facility in Allen, TX. Owned and operated by Mike Boylson and Keith Furnish, D-BAT Allen is truly a state of the art baseball and softball training facility spanning over 26,600 square feet and representing the epitome of the D-BAT brand. Open to all individuals and all teams, D-BAT Allen does not operate baseball or softball teams out of its facility. People who have experienced D-BAT Allen are impressed with the well-lit, clean, climate controlled, spacious environment as well as the extensive merchandise pro shop. D-BAT Allen has a number of differentiating factors that put it ahead of all competition in the Dallas area including:
SPACIOUS ENVIRONMENT: A total of 18 cages (tunnels) are available for training including (10) 70' cages and (8) 55' cages. Most cages are 14' wide, and the netting is 18' high supported by over 10,000 lbs. of cable tension eliminating sagging. Wide aisle walk ways provide for a more comfortable and safer environment for both parents and players.
TEAM PRACTICE AREA: There is a large team practice section that is divided into two large areas. Each area is larger than 2 full cages and can handle a full practice session. A team practice area can be rented for as low as $150 per hour with discounts given based on the number of hours rented. Book 10 or more hours and save 10%, book 20 hours or more and save 20%, book 30 hours or more and save 30%. Reservations are being taken now for future months.
CLIMATE CONTROLLED: The air conditioned facility is perfect for hot Texas summers and is heated during the winter months. Teams and individuals can train without dealing with the weather - including rain.
SUPERIOR LIGHTING: The lighting at D-BAT Allen is one of the things people notice right away. The combination of four natural sky lights and the coolest, most natural lighting available, leads to the best indoor lighting possible. The lighting runs along the cage netting lines allowing for even light distribution while eliminating glare inside the cages.
MERCHANDISE PRO SHOP: The pro shop contains an extensive assortment of baseball and softball apparel and equipment. D-BAT Allen is known for its complete assortment of new -3 BBCOR bats and wood bats, both maple and ash, at competitive prices. Wood bats can be special ordered in any model with any dip/color combination, free name engraving and free shipping.
CLAY PITCHING MOUNDS: D-BAT Allen has two regulation-height clay pitching mounds for advanced pitching lessons, tryouts and showcase camps. The mounds are continuously manicured and watered and have the same surface as professional mounds allowing pitchers to simulate game conditions by throwing in their spikes.
PARENT ROOM: The spacious Parent Room features free wi-fi service, free coffee, television and comfortable seating providing a quieter environment for parents and smaller children while players practice. The Parent Room has large windows on two sides allowing for open viewing of the facility.
TEAM MEETING ROOM: The large Team Meeting Room will accommodate up to 36 people and can be rented out for team meetings, birthdays, etc. There is a 144" high definition flat screen television in the front of the room supported by four additional 48" televisions - two on each side for multiple game viewing.
