About Eastlake Chargers Baseball Academy
The Eastlake Chargers Baseball/Softball Academy is northern Indiana's premier baseball and softball training facility. ECBSA is located inside of Eastlake Athletic Club in Goshen, Indiana.
Our Goshen facility opened in October of 2015, and it includes 3 state of the art, pro-style batting cages 90' L x 14' W x 20' H, 3 pitching mounds, and 2 walls around the perimeter of the cages dedicated to elite arm care and velocity development. All of our batting cages are retractable which allows for a great 92' x 92' open area for throwing, fielding, and team defensive work.
