RiverHawks’ Daleo opening Wallbangers
« Back
November 3, 2010 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – A member of the Rockford RiverHawks’ front office is opening the Stateline’s premier hitting academy.

Chris Daleo, the RiverHawks’ director of operations, announced Wednesday the arrival of Wallbangers Academy, an indoor baseball/softball practice facility within the Top Performers building at 7135 Clinton Rd.

Wallbangers, with more than 8,000 square feet, and 20-foot ceilings, gives teams the freedom to practice year round. The building includes five 75-foot batting tunnels and three pitching machines.

“Wallbangers Academy was started because of the idea that baseball/softball should be open to everyone,” Daleo said. “Indoor space that can be rented for reasonable rates, for kids that have the thirst to become better players. It is not a facility that caters to the elite or the rich. It is open to anyone who wants to get better.”

Daleo also plans to cross-promote the facility with the RiverHawks, who host hundreds of amateur baseball games each year at Road Ranger Stadium.

To schedule rental time or to schedule one-on-one instruction with a Wallbangers staff coach, call Daleo at (815) 885-2255.

Advertising and season-ticket information for the RiverHawks’ 10th season is available by calling (815) 885-2255. Games are broadcast live on ESPN 1380 (WTJK-AM) and on ESPN1380.com. Fans can also visit the RiverHawks online at www.rockfordriverhawks.com.
