The only year-round batting and pitching facility between Montreal and Toronto, we train elite-level athletes from across Quebec and Ontario, and we have the best indoor batting cages and baseball programs for anyone in the Ottawa-Gatineau region with a love of the game. At Ruthian, we’ve helped athletes with everything from learning the baseball basics to earning a spot on a competitive team at various levels.

Our Story

Ruthian Baseball Academy (formerly Youth Elite Sports) was founded in 2011 by Brian Beehler. After several years of sell-out programs and alumni moving on to elite levels teams and colleges, in 2015 it was time to build Dingerz, a 23,500 sq. ft. facility unrivalled between Montreal and Toronto and to expand into a year-round, elite indoor baseball academy. With some of the best instructors in the region, Brian’s original goal remains the same: to cultivate the highest level of athletic training without sacrificing core principles of sportsmanship like honesty, courage, dependability and unselfishness.
