Pitching Mounds

Portable Pitching Mounds

Portable pitching mounds are widely used by players from Little League, Colleges, and even Pro Players for off-season training, due to their overall low maintenance & portability. Developing & maintaining a dirt mound year after year can become very costly, not to mention inaccurate, resulting in improper training & a potential safety hazard.

A portable mound can easily pay for itself after only a few seasons of use, and can even be used as a "multi-tasker mound" for multiple fields if needed.

What are the most important factors to consider when shopping for a mound?

Practice / Bullpen Mound:

  • Include 90 degree angled edges - designed for straight-ahead pitching practice only - cheaper than "game mounds".

Game Mound:

  • Include tapered edges, to allow the mound's edges to fit flush with the ground. This creates a safer environment during games, allowing for pick-off moves and accommodating players running across the field to catch pop-flys. Game mounds are always more expensive than "practice mounds" due to their advanced design.

Youth Mound:

  • Typically include rubber height of 6" or less - a fairly common youth regulation.

High-School / Collegiate/Pro-level Mound:

  • Include rubber height of 10" - a high-school, collegiate, & pro regulation.

Tips:

  • The rubber height is measured from a level ground surface to the top of the rubber.
  • Pay attention to the length & width when shopping for a mound.
  • Longer mounds are more suitable for taller players with longer strides - don't end up with a mound your player will outgrow & won't allow them to simulate a game condition.
  • The width is important to allow players to practice the wind-up from all sides of the rubber.
  • Pack dirt around edges of mound to help conform to the ground & create a more flush playing area.
  • The bigger the mound, the heavier it becomes. This can be a Pro & Con. On one hand it becomes more cumbersome to move around - on the other hand it stays in place much better than a smaller mound without reinforcement.
  • 2-piece mounds can be useful, allowing for easier storage and better portability.
