SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Smokies got brand new addition to their stadium. 

They recently announced they will be adding an athletic performance center, which will include three batting cages, and indoor pitching mound, a Hack Attack pitching machine that can throw up to 95 mph. 

“We are very excited to announce the opening of our Indoor Performance Center,” Added Boyd Sports President and COO, Chris Allen. “We believe that this will be an extremely valuable asset and tool for the Smokies, youth teams, high school teams and much more for many years to come. This Performance Center truly allows for year-round training for players of all skill levels.”
