Who Are We:
- The Play Ball Sports indoor facility has closed as of August 27, 2020 due to coronavirus uncertainties. However, PBS will still manage/train the Indiana County Explosion (ICE) 16u and 18u teams for the 2021 season.
- Owners, Mike and Penny Zimmerman, had a vision in 2012 to provide an indoor baseball/softball training facility for the children of Indiana County and the surrounding areas, as many local players were traveling to Pittsburgh or Johnstown (an hr each way) to play a sport that they love. Traveling that distance weekly themselves for their daughter's travel softball team, they decided to cut out the travel and open up this facility with partners, Rob and BJ Stossel. In 2017, the Zimmerman's bought out the Stossel's, and now run Play Ball Sports solely. Over the past 8 years, 100's of other children got to enjoy Play Ball Sports and what it has brought to the area and area teams, helping local Little League teams, high school teams, travel teams, and more be the best they can be!
- The mission of Play Ball Sports is to meet the needs of the baseball and softball community in Indiana County and surrounding areas through knowledge, dedication, passion, hard work.
- Since 2012, Play Ball Sports has strived to be the area leader for softball skill development. Our approach centers on a commitment to excellence, hard work, fostering a love for the game, by bringing enthusiam, enjoyment, and smiles to the faces of all who enter into our programs and establishment.
