Phillies MLB Urban Youth Academy

Training Center

The Ryan Howard Training Center at the Marian Anderson Recreation Center in South Philadelphia is a new 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 new 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 Urban Youth Academy.
