More than $2 million is being spent on a new addition to Marian Anderson Recreation Center for the Major League Baseball Youth Academy. Improvements to the center include new indoor batting cages, classroom space and more as part of a youth baseball development program.
Now that the facility is almost completed at 17th and Fitzwater, it’s time to give it an official name. From the beginning of the project, current Phillies player Ryan Howard has been a contributor. A bill is now being introduced to name the facility as the Ryan Howard Training Center.
