Thorne-Rider Park Indoor Hitting & Pitching Shed

The Sheridan Athletic Association, Sheridan Recreation District, and many donors from the community have constructed a 60’ x 100’ indoor hitting and pitching facility for year round practice. The building is located in Thorne-Rider Park across from Legion Stadium. Webb Wright baseball players and softball players can access the building. The facility has three pitching mounds, three tunnels for hitting, and an open area for short toss and long toss. NO MINORS under the age of 16 will be allowed in the facility without parental supervision. You will need to go online to reserve a time slot and there is a small fee for use. Visit to reserve a slot today. Webb Wright coaches and softball teams will need to contact JD Williams or Zach Stewart at 307-674-6421 to sign up a team for practice.
