Baseball Field Clay, Pitching Mound Clay, Conditioner & More!
It’s no secret that you can’t use just any soil on your baseball field and pitcher’s mound. What looks like a standard dirt mound and base running surface is actually a very special mix of clay, silt, and sand. It’s designed to provide an ideal surface for gameplay, as standard soil would be too unpredictable as far as ball direction and hops are concerned.
Plus, packed soil is difficult to stand on for prolonged periods of time, making things uncomfortable for the players on the field. Drainage is yet another issue that needs to be addressed because typical soil is not designed to absorb some of the rainfall that baseball field and mound clay can. Using these special blends prevents the formation of puddles and slippery mud.
When it’s time to replace some of the baseball field clay or pitching mound clay, thanks to standard use and repairs removing some of the surface layers, you need to choose just the right baseball field and mound clay.

Designed to alleviate any safety concerns, as well as not stick to cleats, infield materials are either made of virgin clay or vitrified clay, depending on the product.
