Tracey and Bearin "Big Bear" Santos will open Big Bear Sports, Smyrna's first and only indoor baseball/softball facility, in October.

The climate controlled 5,600 square foot state of the art facility gives athletes a chance to train in any weather.

Big Bear Sports includes five cages - two pitching and three hitting - and two tee/soft toss areas that can be used by both baseball and softball teams of any skill level. The facility's Jugs BP3 pitching machines have a speed capability of 90 mph for baseball and 75 mph for softball and will throw a variety of pitches.

Previously located off S. Cobb Drive in Smyrna, Big Bear Sports is now co-located with Big Bear Construction at 3515 North Cooper Lake Road near the intersection of South Cobb Drive and Concord Road in Smyrna.
