Former MLB Rockies "Top Prospect" Nate Holdren and his wife Angie bought The Batters Box in April 2016. Nate's personal athletic experiences have been instrumental in helping players develop their athletic skills. The former Gatorade State Baseball Player of the Year has spent over 20 years playing, coaching, or managing. With proven one-on-one instruction he teaches the fundamentals to players at all age levels to improve their game.
