Pitch Pro 486 Pitching Mound
The Pitch Pro 486 Pitching Mound is 6” high regulation little league size mound. This mound is the next step up from Pitch Pro’s 465 model. Unlike the 465, with the 486 portable mounds, pitchers will land on the actual mound and not the dirt. The 486 has a stride length of 64” making it perfect for players ages 8-14.
Pitch Pro crafts each pitching mound to have the regulation slope. This makes it feel like you are pitching on a regular dirt mound.
The 486 a very widely used because it is portable, durable, and very reasonably priced. This mound only weighs 115 pounds and can easily fit in the back of an SUV or truck bed.
Who uses the 486?
The Pitch Pro 486 Pitching Mound is regulation height for the following leagues:
- Little League – Minor and Major divisions
- Babe Ruth’s Cal Ripken – Rookie, Minor, and Major/60 divisions
- Dixie League – AA, AAA, and Major divisions
- Pony League – Bronco division
Longer Stride Length
Pitch Pro builds the 486 Pitching Mound with a fiberglass core! The fiberglass construction makes the 486 one of the most durable mounds. The 486 comes with supporting fiberglass bars that go from the pitching rubber down to the edge of the mound. This allows the mound to absorb the impact from pitchers of all sizes.
In addition to supporting larger pitchers, the 486 will hold up against the rain and cold. Most mounds will have to be stored in a shed on a daily basis. The 486 you can leave outside for the duration of the season. However, we do recommend storing all mounds away during the winter months.
Replacement Launch Pad
One of the great features of the Pitch Pro pitching mounds is the replacement launch pad. If you take a look at the picture, the replacement launch pad is the black pad that sits right in front of the rubber. Since this is where the pitcher starts his stride, it is the most abused part of the mound. The launch pad is easily removed and replaced.
With other mounds you have to cut out a piece of the turf or replace the entire turf. The launch pad will save you time and money when it comes time to repair.

I was debating between the 486 and 465. Glad I chose the 486. It has the longer length to land on the mound. Kids love it and has been great for our games and practices.
Our Pitch Pro 486 Mound has lasted us nearly 10 years. We recently bought a couple other Pitch Pro pitching mounds for the other age groups and love their products.
I spoke with Matt a few years ago before purchasing and he helped guide me towards the 486 Pitching Mound. Pitch Pro does a nice job with the core of the pitching mound and the support bars. Have not had any problems with the core and have only had to do minor touch ups on the turf in the 4-5 years we’ve owned it.
Excellent pitching mound for little leagues!
