Baseball / Softball Mounds
Top Mounds Questions
xGame mounds have tapered edges to conform to a field, which are safer for game play. Practice mounds have straight edges & are designed only for straight-ahead pitching practice.
xYou don't want a player to stride off the end of the mound which would cause an uneven landing. Taller players need longer mounds.
xThey are by nature, but some are easier to port around than others. The 2-piece "portolite" are the easiest, but all can be moved with the help of a few people & a truck.
xNot under normal usage. It's a HD stryo-foam designed for impact. However, a fiberglass mound will outlast a foam mound simply by virtue of it being a harder material.
xIt depends on your preference. Foam mounds are lighter & easier to transport, but fiberglass are more durable and will stay in place better.
xAll mounds use a spike-resistant turf which is UV-resistant, but will eventually wear-out in the impact areas
xTurf patching is fairly easy in a small area. Complete resurfacing is relatively easy by experienced personnel and requires a limited amount of adhesive.
xThe length and weight are considered "extreme" by the truck-lines, resulting in higher transit costs.
