How to Build Pitcher Hill in Your Backyard
There are some basic questions about backyard pitch hammering, which must be considered at the beginning. First, buying a prefabricated portable pitcher is a cost, $ 700 to $ 1500 + depending on the quality and accessories, and secondly, actually building a dirt pitcher is a huge workload, and it should only cost
Great, what I want is a pitching mound in my back yard and I can practice throwing away and you tell me that I need a ton of money to do it. Oh, against my friends. If you have modest building skills, I will show you how to build a perfect practice pitch hill only $ 200 or less if you have wood around the house
Finished Size 4 & # 39; 1. 1 1 – Plywood * When purchasing a plywood, there are two factors to consider: 1) When the plywood is purchased, the following factors are taken into consideration: 1 2 3 4 4 3 4 4 4 6 7 8 9 8 9 8 9 0 0 0 [¾"plywoodisstrongerandstrongerthan½"plywoodeliminatinganyflexibilityintheplatformbutitisalsoheavierandmoreexpensive
1 – 4  Step 1 Astroturf and contact with cement
Place your tape measure at the end of a 2 "x 10" x 8 "and go down 2 & # 39; and make a pencil mark
From this 2 & # 39; Your platform base (top of the pitching mound) by measuring your mark down 1 "and then measuring down 1" and the other foot, measuring 2 "under the other foot and 3" until reaching the plate .
Using a chalk line, keep it on the 2 & # 39; mark and extend to the bottom, shoot a line, and it will mark the downward slope of the pitch mound, 1 "
for every foot
Step 3 Step 3 Step 1:
Separate the four beams. Connect 2 "x 10" x 4 & # 39; to the back of each stringer. Connect 2 "x 4" x 4 & # 39; to the front of the beam. I recommend cutting blocks of 2 "x 4" or 2 "x 10" and connecting them to the beginning of the down hill between strings.
Cut a 2 & # 39; 4 & # 39; plywood and connect it to the flat area of the mound. Use the remaining plywood to cover the slope.
Step 5 Step 1:
Covering the top area with contact cement and attaching 2 x & # 39; pieces to Astroturf.
*** You can try to attach the Astroturf as one, but it is hard to go beyond the plane without cutting it
*** Completed pellets will be heavy, it is recommended that you put it in the place you want before installing the plywood
*** You can install the pitching rubber A piece of wood simulates a pitching rubber, with better accuracy of the foot placement, with a screw
The mound, although possibly rough compared to a $ 1500 prefabricated mound, meets all the needs of practice Throwing a pitching hill, which is completely different to throw on a flat surface, and may cost zero
