About Us

Locally owned and operated! The Ball Barn is a brand new, state of the art facility conveniently located behind Festus Main Street.

The facility has four 12 x 70 foot tunnels with the ability to open to 48 x 70 foot for field practice. In addition to professional turf cages, there is an elevated viewing area for family and friends to relax and enjoy watching their athlete practice.

The Ball Barn is a full service baseball and softball training facility designed for team and individual use. Batting, pitching, and fielding lessons are available through regional coaches and instructors. The facility is equipped with the HitTrax system for additional training analytics and entertainment. We will be utilizing HitTrax for cage ball leagues, quality hit games, and other hitting activities.

Gift certificates, apparel, and other items available. Contact us or swing by the facility to inquire about package and membership offers.

Keep us in mind for birthday parties, Nerf Wars, Dodge Ball, and other events. We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Mercer’s and LaPlante’s are excited to bring The Ball Barn to Festus.

The vision started after continuous trips to northern Jefferson and St. Louis County for indoor practices and a lack of recreational facilities in the community for our youth.

Both families grew up and currently reside in the Jefferson County area.  Pictured from left to right.  Front Row: Landon Mercer, Dulany Mercer, Jackson LaPlante, & Paxton LaPlante.  Back Row: Shane Mercer, Erin Mercer, Jason LaPlante, & Dayna LaPlante.
