Found this press release from the Islanders Baseball club…I'm with CB0—not very excited about this. Zero interest in serving the neighborhood. To me, seems like a bunch of really wealthy Mercer Islanders just bought their kids an indoor baseball facility with the hopes of making some money by charging others to use their elite, indoor training grounds. See below:
THE K CENTER OPENS OFFICIALLY NOVEMBER 1ST
The Northwest Islanders Baseball Club is happy to announce that their training facility is scheduled to be fully operational as of November 1st. The K Center (www.thekcenter.com ) will be the home of Northwest Islanders Baseball and also allow for other teams and trainers to rent cage, pitching, fielding, and training areas.
The entire facility is privately owned and operated for the sole purpose of giving players and families another option when making their decision on the proper training and instruction they seek. It is not a rental space that will go away after a few years.
The Northwest Islanders have already begun and will continue their extensive off-season training program in the facilities portable cages and mounds while under construction. The completed facility will be completely new in every sense, with the owner purchasing brand new heavy weight nets along with top of the line padded turf for cages and the highest quality FieldTurf for the defensive and cross-training areas. Balls, pitching machines, and batting t's are all provided and kept up to date and new.
For training purposes, the completed facility will have 8 cages, 4 mounds, FieldTurf area for fielding, along with warm-up, conditioning, and weights areas.
If you would like more information on using The K Center you can contact them either through their website or myself.
