With the help of Glen Rock resident Ken Holcomb, former Revs slugger Jason Aspito has opened an indoor baseball and softball facility in Red Lion Borough.

The facility features roughly 13,000 square feet of batting cages and pitching tunnels. Aspito will be running the day-to-day operations. And longtime York Revolution pitcher Corey Thurman, former Revs’ pitcher Daryl Harang and former Revs’ outfielder Matt Padgett will also be available to provide lessons and clinics at the facility.

It becomes the second indoor baseball and softball facility to open in York County in the last couple months after former Revs’ manager Chris Hoiles opened Gold Glove Academy late last year.
