Former Professional Baseball Player Turned Entrepreneur Matt Guiliano Brings Long Island Haunts Together As the 4th Year of “Chamber of Horrors” Returns to His Indoor Sports Training Center  


With “Chamber of Horrors” Featured at Matt Guiliano’s Play Like A Pro for the 4th Year in A Row, the Baseball Star/Coach/Businessman Continues to Thrive as He Helps Bring the LI “Scare Community” Together

Hauppauge, NY (May, 2016) — With his Play Like A Pro attracting baseball players of all ages and skill levels to train and improve their game, former Pro Baseball star turned entrepreneur Matt Guiliano has turned his knowledge and know-how into a thriving business which, for the past three years, has also been home to one of Long Island’s scariest haunted attractions bringing fear and fun to all new levels: Chamber of Horrors NY. Now, as it heads into its 4th year, Guiliano alongside his partner Marty Arominski–owner and operator of Chamber, who has been scaring Long Islanders for over 15 years at various locations–have brought the Chamber together with three other well known scare-tractions: Darkside Haunted House in Wading River, Schmitt’s Family Farm Haunted Mansion in Melville, and Gateway’s Haunted Playhouse in Bellport!


A star Athlete at an early age, Matt Guiliano attended Connetquot High School and was an Iona College Scholarship player from 1990 until 1994. Matt was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 20th round, and made it to AAA with the Phillies. In his 7 year professional career he played with the Phillies,Toronto Blue Jays, Milwaukee Brewers, and finished up his career at home for the Long Island ducks. He hit the first Grand Slam in LI Ducks history in 2000, was in the South Atlantic League All-Star Team in 1995, MAAC Player of the Year in 1994, and on the All MACC in 1993. Having been involved in baseball instruction since 1996 and conducting his own camps since 2000- he opened “Play Like A Pro” in 2004 and has been teaching players of all ages the finer points of the game since.


“I had the opportunity to open up this place and thought it would be a great idea to teach kids how to play baseball, teach them life lessons, and give back the knowledge that I’d learned. When I played ball, they always said ‘give back to the game’ and I never understood what that meant. Now I understand and that’s what I’m doing, I’m giving back to the game”


Play Like A Pro is New York’s Premier indoor baseball & softball training facility, dedicated to meeting the needs of players of all ages and abilities. Their state-of-the-art training facility has over 33,000 square feet, which includes 8 indoor hitting tunnels, 4 state of the art coin operated batting cages, 4 pitching mounds, 90×40 fielding area, 96×40 soccer field, a fully staffed pro shop with the latest equipment, and strength and conditioning center. With coin operated batting cages, you have the choice of speed and variable height settings so no more wasted time in the wrong cage! Offering one-on-one and group instruction from their professional staff of instructors, they have over 100 years of combined professional playing and coaching experience between them and include other former MLB stars as well.



Welcoming Chamber of Horrors to his facility in 2012, the premiere haunted attraction on Long Island brought over 10,000 visitors to Play Like A Pro last year and will once again run from the end of September straight through Halloween night with additional dates and special events coming in November. But in his entrepreneurial spirit, Giuliano recently began plans to help bring three more of the island’s biggest scare attractions together with “Chamber” in an effort to spread the fun and fear. Though no official plans have yet been revealed, a potential group-rate and bus package to visit all four haunts may come about, meaning visitors will be able to get their scare on at the best Halloween-themed attractions LI has to offer!
