Throw Down Bases
There’s a wide variety of baseball base designs on the market with different functionalities and benefits, but the main two are anchored or throw down.

But what if you need an anchored base, while being compliant with Little League rule 1.06? This is where breakaway bases come in. BreakAway bases are designed to break away from the base plate upon impact, ensuring maximum player safety. baseball bases are now the de facto system in the market at displacing energy from player to base – without creating a secondary hazard or danger to other ball players.
Breakaway bases have become so popular that they are now a requirement in Little League fields. Additionally, they are approved for game use by Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Pony, USA, and USSSA leagues.

For simple and affordable anchored bases, customers and coaches love our Major League Bases. These come in sets of 3, or single bases, depending on what you need.
Other Base Styles
We also carry other styles of baseball bases. Another popular option are magnetic bases. Magnetic baseball bases work well, but over long periods of time, magnets break and dirt gets in between the magnets, making them less effective.
We also carry bases with ground stakes. These are a great option for quick setups, but are not recommend for long term us.
Last but not least are baseball home plates. Perhaps the most important base on a baseball field, the home plate is where runs are scored and games are won, or strike outs go down and loses occur. A home plate for a baseball field needs to be durable and stand up to the rigors of cleats, long seasons and players sliding home.
The degree to which a field is used will determine what quality of home plate you will need. You might be able to get away with a throw down home plate if you're playing a pick up game with friends. But for a real baseball field? You'll need an anchored or buried home plate. Take a look at some of our curated home plate options above.
