Dome 2020

DOME Opening on January 4th!

The Dome will be opening on January 4th.  See below for information on *NEW* guidelines and restrictions for accessing the Dome this winter.


Dome Membership 2020

STMA Youth Baseball will again offer memberships for batting cage and field time at the Dome this winter.  However, there will be some significant changes this year due to the Covid 19 Pandemic to ensure safety for all players and adherence to all regulations and rules set by the State and Local governments and the school district.  STMA Youth Baseball does not own the Dome; we rent time just as all the other youth associations who use it in STMA.  This year the Youth Baseball Dome hours consist of 820 total hours of cage time and 84 hours of field time over the course of 3 months beginning in December up to Tryouts on February 27th.
