HANNIBAL, Mo. — Due to increasing popularity, Hannibal Parks and Recreation is expanding the walk-in time at the Clemens Training Facility on additional days.

Currently, individuals can use the facility from 5-8 p.m. Tuesdays at $6 per hour in 10-minute increments. Starting Feb. 2, Thursdays will also be used for walk-ins.

Teams can schedule practices at Clemens Training Facility from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sundays and from 4-8 p.m. Mondays and now Wednesdays, at an hourly rate of $25.

Evan Harsell, senior baseball player at Hannibal High School who recently announced plans to play college baseball at Culver-Stockton College, uses the facility frequently. In a press release, Harsell said, “I like using the new training facility at Clemens because it provides me a space to practice that I wouldn’t normally have. Having the ability to practice here gives me the opportunity to get more work in when I need and achieve my future goals.”

The facility is in left field of Clemens Field. The building has been outfitted with a restroom, new lighting and heating. The large space is mainly used for hitting and pitching practice. It includes two batting cages, pitching machines and soft-toss nets, along with tees and soft-toss machines.

Jacob Bone, recreation supervisor for Hannibal Parks and Recreation, said, “We have had many people reach out and voice that the Clemens Training Facility filled a need in Hannibal. With the recent popularity, we have decided to expand availability to Wednesday and Thursday.”

Registration for Sunday, Monday and Wednesday usage is available at: https://hannibalparks.recdesk.com
