Proper Pitch 8 Inch Tapered Game Mound
The Proper Pitch 8” Tapered Game Mound is an upgrade over the standard game mound. The tapered game mound has been a huge hit since it was unveiled last year. The tapered mound has the same features as the Classic Mound except the sides have a gradual slope. This allows pitcher’s to easily perform pickoff moves to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base. 8” mounds are perfect for 50/70 use, middle school, and kids transitioning from little league to a 10” mound.
The 8” Pitcher’s Mound is regulation dimensions for:
- Little League– Intermediate division
- Babe Ruth’s Cal Ripken– Major/70 division
- Dixie League– “O” Zone division
- Pony League– Pony division
- Shock Absorbing Landing Area– The shock absorbing landing area is a great feature that adds durability to the pitching mound. This area absorbs a lot of the pressure that is placed on the mound when the pitcher completes his stride providing the mound with more durability. This landing area will also reduce stress on pitcher’s ligaments.
- High Strength Construction– All of Proper Pitch’s mounds are built to last. They are very durable and you will get a lot of usage out of anyone of their mounds. They are also designed to be lightweight to make them easier to carry on and off the field.
- Non Slip, Non Marking Backing– This mound is primarily used as a game mound but doubles as a practice mound. The mound has a non-slip, non-marking backing that allows teams to bring the mound indoors during winter training and inclement weather to practice their pitching.
- Tapered Sides – The classic mound has a drop off to the ground that makes it more difficult for pitcher’s to perform pickoff moves. This new, tapered mound has gradual slopes to each side of the mound which allows pitcher’s to pickoff runners on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base.
- Larger Dimensions– The dimensions of the mound are 11’6” Long x 8’3” Wide x 8” High.
- Lightweight Design– The 8” Game Mound weighs only 260 pounds. 260 pounds is significantly less than comparable models that are 8” mounds. This allows the mound to be easily transported with two or three people.
- All Proper Pitch Pitching Mounds come with a one year warranty on the core of the mound.
- Made in USA– This mound is manufactured right here in the USA!
