Years ago, the son of a popular pitching mound manufacturer pitched his worst game ever. A decent pitcher, the kid and his dad were shocked at this poor performance. What happened that day?
It's simple, this young player was used to pitching from a 10" mound, and when he showed up to pitch at the opposing teams field, there was no mound on the field. This lack of continuity caused this young pitcher, and thousands of other pitchers, to underperform. This is where the idea of portable game pitching mounds was conceived.
Nowadays, requirements for specific mound dimensions per league are a norm, eliminating this problem completely. Today, there are tons of different quality portable pitching mounds, made to various spec requirements, allowing you to pick the perfect mound for your league and your field.
Game pitching mounds can also be used during practice. It is important to use a raised pitching mound during practice as well as during a game for consistency.
Using a different sized mound frompractice togame could really throw off your pitcher's aim. So be sure to select the right size mound for yourpitchers!
If you plan on using your new game pitching mound for a little league tournament, be sure to purchase a little league approved mound otherwise you won't be able to use it!
