World-class indoor and outdoor facilities
The multi-site Phillies MLB Youth Academy is comprised of both outdoor and indoor facilities to provide free, year-round instruction to the more than 5,000 Phillies Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) players in Philadelphia.
The Ryan Howard Training Center at the Marian Anderson Recreation Center in South Philadelphia is a 7,500-square-foot, state-of-the-art training center added to the existing recreation and includes four retractable batting cages similar to those at the Phillies minor league spring training site in Clearwater, Fla.
The center also includes space for fitness training, educational and vocational programs. In addition to this new facility, the academy consists of an outdoor location at Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park in South Philadelphia with two baseball fields and two softball fields. The Philadelphia Area Chevy Dealers are a proud sponsor of the Phillies MLB Youth Academy.
