Indians unveil training camp in Dominican Republic

BY foxsports • May 16, 2011

The Cleveland Indians unveiled a new training academy in the Dominican Republic on Monday in an effort to develop more young baseball prospects from the talent-rich country and other Latin American nations.

Team official Ramon Pena says the new $2.6 million facility in San Antonio de Guerra can house 72 players and includes two full-sized baseball fields, bullpen training mounds, a gymnasium and classrooms.

Dominican President Leonel Fernandez joined the team's executives at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the academy, which will serve as the hub for the Indians' Latin American operations.
