My Favorite Economy Portable Pitching Mound For Youth Baseball!
This 6″ portable pitching mound model has been a workhorse in youth baseball tournaments for well over a decade as of this writing. I’ve never had a complaint about premature wear or the all-important shell failing (a common complaint). This alone is a good reason why I’ve never added any new artificial mound brands (though I do keep looking).
All brands of the portable pitching mound are expensive but the reality is that our brand just seems to last longer; this alone drives down the cost of ownership simply by its extended years of quality performance! This model is more than competitively priced for a pro-quality product. I’d say that this model is the #1 choice we sell, especially where there are multi-sport converted ballfields that must service various age groups and conversions from softball infields, and for those in need of a good artificial mound but are on a budget.
I like the portable pitching mound size as well as the real Astroturf covering along with the long-lasting pitcher’s rubber. Our portable mound models have been made for us by the same manufacturer for over 15 years!. They make mounds and only mounds… true professionals who build the best pitching mounds for travel baseball and many summer league baseball complexes, where users are heaviest!
The 6″ Pitchers mound height fits more age groups than any other size. Best for 5 ft or taller pitchers usually seen in the 10-14 yr old age groups. Though it is not a full-size game mound due to its shorter dimensions, it can be used and most rules allow. Our longer 6″ portable full-length game mound is worth a look if the budget allows.
6″ Artificial Mound Information

- About The Polyurethane Plastic Capsule – This final process seals the entire mound, protects gym floor & reduces mound movement while preventing any moisture which can add weight and prematurely degrade the entire mound
- The AstroTurf® Cover – Best grade nylon AstroTurf® is what used. Costs a little more but known for its long-lasting qualities
- About The Pitcher’s Rubber – Count on it outlasting any game rubber you could buy
- Warranty: 1 Year but expect many seasons without issue!

My Portable Mound Summary
If the price and sizes fit your needs… you found the right model. I hold this artificial mound manufacturer in the highest regard. They are a family business that still does it the right way. No shortcuts, They are a 25-year-old company that has built one line of products; this should tell you all you need to know! Remember, you don’t want to buy this stuff twice!
I hope my thoughts will help you make your best decision!
