Our brand new line of Wind Weighted® Baseball Tarps finally solves the problem of both rain and wind, without using stakes or sandbags. These tarps are virtually wind-proof because ¼" galvanized chain weights are built into their outer hem. Since wind cannot get under the tarp, its force tends to push the tarp downward, keeping it in place....the tarp has proven to withstand storm winds up to 65 MPH!
Our Major League style, 36-sided design is almost a perfect circle that, if properly installed, will not harm the surrounding infield grass. The 36 point, near circle shape was specifically designed to fit neatly into the mound or home base dirt circle. The tarp will provide optimum long-term day coverage, winter protection or dirt moisture management.
These baseball tarps are constructed of a high quality 14 oz. vinyl-polyester fabric that is waterproof, UV & mildew treated, and virtually tear-proof. This rugged, shrink-proof industrial fabric with fusion welded seams is easily repairable if accidentally. There truly is no equal!
When it's raining, the quicker the installation the better. With the unique Wind Weighted Tarp Installer, two people can install a tarp in about thirty seconds. That includes retrieving the rolled-up tarp from convenient on-field storage at the base of a fence or the backstop and then applying the tarp with our self-contained lifting and rolling device.
The Installer has two sets of handles at each end of its rugged PVC and aluminum pipe body - one handle near each end for easier lifting and carrying AND extended pull handles to make the actual installation job a simple task. The Installer is a foot longer at each end, allowing Wind Weighted® Baseball Tarps to be rolled on without stepping on the mound or home base areas. It's the fastest way ever invented to install a baseball tarp!
Tim Hill - Manatee Community College, Bradenton FL
Coach Hill was the first coach to use Wind Weighted® Baseball Tarps. Before he got them, "When it started raining during a game, about ten students and players would install tarps, some spreading and standing on the edges to keep wind from blowing them up. Others would run to get sandbags. The entire process took almost 10 minutes."
Coach Hill now uses a 20' mound cover and a 30' home base cover. He also uses Wind Weighted Installers to store, move, and install his tarps. He noted, "The Installers let us store our tarps at the base of the backstop, a quick and easy place to get them when needed." Now, two from his team can cover the mound in 25 seconds, and can easily cover home base in about 30 seconds - from start to finish. "It's so simple in concept. Why hasn't somebody in baseball invented this before?"
Coach Johnny Wiggs - Polk Community College, Winter Haven, FL
Coach Wiggs formerly used "most of the team to cover the mound and home plate if there was no lightening with the rain. Some stood on the edges while others would get the stakes and pound them into the ground. It took about five minutes to finish the job." He noted that "heavy wind would occasionally rip the tarp's grommet right out of the tarp." Coach Wiggs is particularly impressed with the speed of installation of his new 30' home plate tarp using the Wind Weighted Tarp Installer: "Now we can cover home plate in less than 25 seconds. We clocked it." He can cover the mound with his new 18' diameter tarp by himself or with one player, and throughout the entire process most of his players get to stay in the dugout.
Also used at the Dodgers and Yankees spring training ballparks...and hundreds of fields across the United States!
Wind Weighted® Baseball Tarps are so good, they're patented.

2004 was the "Year of Hurricanes" in Florida, with four major storms hitting the state in just two months. One hurricane crossed Florida, headed up the Atlantic Coast, and blew its way across Georgia. The Atlanta area experienced storm winds up to 65 mph, and Collins Hill High School in the suburb town of Suwanee took a direct hit.
Paul Pierce, head baseball coach at Collins Hill, tells the story best:
"Looking at our baseball facility the morning after the storm was a shock. All our signs were blown away. Some of our outfield fence was bent over, and the windscreen was torn off the fences. A big pile of metal debris behind the field blew away, and we never saw it again. Our field was a mess.
Then I noticed that our new Wind Weighted Baseball Tarp was still on the mound. Though hard to believe, it hadn't moved an inch during the storm. Looking under, we found that the covered part of the mound was basically untouched by the wind and rain. Needless to say, we're very satisfied with our Wind Weighted rain covers. They work just like the ads say they do."
