Baseball facility changes ownership

VISTA — Prime Time Sports, North County’s premier baseball and softball instructional facility, will soon have a new owner. The center will change hands Nov. 26. The new owners plan to upgrade and enhance the facility, as well as foster new strong partnerships with the community.
“We are excited to be the new owners of a baseball and softball instructional facility with such a long and stellar history like Prime Time Sports,” proprietor Carine Nguyen said. “The center is a true legend in the sport, having trained some of the best baseball players in history. Well-known major league players Barry Zito, Dave Roberts, Brett Tomko and
Gary Templeton II are just a few players that have trained at Prime Time Sports.”
As part of the acquisition, the new owners have pledged to retain the storied history of the facility along with making some upgrades to make the center fun for everyone in the family.
“We are adding a new kid’s area for younger children and WiFi Internet service for Mom and Dad,” Nguyen said. “This way, even if they are not participating in batting instruction, there is plenty of family fun for everyone at Prime Time Sports.”
The new owners are also planning monthly Parent’s Night Out events and have committed to returning 10 percent of their revenue back to serving children in North County.
“We want to not only provide quality baseball and softball instruction to keep children active and involved in sports, but also give back to the community,” Nguyen said.
Prime Time Sports will be hosting a grand re-opening celebration for the entire community at 10 a.m. Dec. 13, featuring free food, a jumpy and plenty of free baseball and softball fun for the entire family.
With a training center consisting of 10,000 square feet indoors and 7,500 square feet outdoors, the facility has the training tools and equipment to serve the needs of
baseball players from Little Leaguers to professionals.
