Baseball Mound Covers and Tarps

For any baseball field manager or groundskeeper, maintaining the pitcher's mound is crucial for game readiness and player performance. This is where pitching mound tarps and mound covers come into play. Designed to protect and preserve the pitching mound, these spot covers are an indispensable tool for any baseball field.

Similar to infield tarps, a mound tarp serves two purposes. First, they are crucial for moisture management. By keeping the mound covered, the tarp helps maintain the optimal moisture levels in the soil and clay. This is essential because the right moisture content helps keep the mound firm yet pliable, ensuring it is in perfect condition for game day. Without proper moisture, the clay can become too hard and slippery or too soft and malleable, both of which can negatively impact a pitcher's performance.

Second, these covers protect the mound from the elements, particularly rain. Rain can severely damage a pitching mound, causing erosion and making the surface uneven and unsafe. By using tarps to cover the mound, you prevent water from pooling and seeping into the clay, thus preserving the mound’s integrity and playability. This protection is not only critical between games but also during off-seasons or after daily practices.

Investing in a high-quality pitching mound tarp is investing in the longevity and usability of your baseball field. High quality covers and tarps are designed to be easy to deploy and secure, often coming with a weighted hem to ensure they stay in place even in high winds. These are known as weighted baseball mound covers and tarps. Moreover, the materials used in high-grade tarps and pitching mound covers are durable, weather-resistant, and UV-stabilized to withstand the harsh conditions they are exposed to throughout the year.

How to Pick the Right Tarp for Your Pitching Mounds

When determining the size of the spot cover you need, we recommend going big. Example: if your pitching mound area is 18' in diameter, try going with the 20' option. This will ensure water doesn't seep onto the mound and damage the soil.
