WESTFIELD -

Another development is coming to Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield. Officials broke ground Wednesday on the $5 million Pro X Athlete Development facility, which will be located just west of the Grand Park Events Center.

The 60,000-square-foot facility will provide a variety of services of athletes of all sports, ages, and skill levels, including physical training, rehabilitation, injury prevention, and sport-specific instruction. it will feature a 3,000-square-foot weight room, 38,000 square feet of open turf, 22 batting cages, two full swing golf simulators, and a fully-operational sports rehab/physical therapy office. 

"The Pro X team is thrilled that we get an opportunity to bring our training experience and expertise to the great city of Westfield and Grand Park," Joe Thatcher, president of Pro X, said in a news release. "We feel our presence on the campus will not only compliment what has been created, but also be a catalyst for future growth."

Pro X was developed by former professional athletes such as former Indianapolis Colts players Justin Snow, Curtis Painter and Dan Muir. Westfield Mayor Andy Cook says the city's vision for Grand Park was that it would be an economic driver for the city and having a private company like Pro X locate at the campus is evidence that the vision is becoming a reality.

The facility is scheduled to open in early 2019.

In fact, many people probably see barriers for the Deaf community when it comes to employment...
