Baseball Commercial Water Hoses Just Last longer Commercial water hoses used as a baseball hose (as you know) are not all created equal. The rubber material is a big part but the fitting and bands make up the rest of the story! A baseball hose has to endure the daily pulling and tugging that it takes, so it's the connectors and fittings that either last or they don't. Since those who read our pages and consider our advice are coaches, grounds crew leads and park people who actually use these items, we only carry institutional commercial water hoses &\u00a0 products. There's just so much I can say about a baseball hose. If you are looking for a solution that will last longer, choose your length & diameter (I suggest the 1" for its increased flow) and move on to the more important parts of your job or ballclub!
