A Weighted Baseball Tarp Just Make Sense!
a baseball tarp that has been used for decades finally got a 21st-century upgrade! These new weighted baseball field tarps act no differently than what we have been covering our dirt areas with since the 1970’s… except that they get the job done quicker and with fewer people needed. Now you can save games that were previously lost due to torrential rainstorms that wash out games before we can get the critical mound & home plate area covered in time!
An Old-School Baseball Tarp, Mound Cover Or Home Plate Cover Needs To Be Retired!
In past years, we bought a baseball tarp for our pitcher’s mound and a cover for home plate made of some tarp material. It was thin but within budget and when it quickly wore out, we bought another one.
We weighed down those lightweight covers with anything that was convenient and generally cheap or free and home-made.
Old tires, chairs, sandbags, cans filled with cement and a rope handle… ever see tubes of PVC cut to 1′ lengths & filled with cement & a rope handle? Quite creative and it takes half a team to deal with it…. twice a day. Ugh! Spot tarps certainly make sense. However, it seems ridiculous to still be doing the same thing we did back in 1970!
New Weighted Field Tarps, Mound Covers & Home Plate Covers… & don’t forget your bullpens too!
Over the last seasons, some creative people have produced much better alternatives… and for reasonable prices too!
These weighted baseball field tarps plus mound, home plate, bullpen & base covers are heavy 18 oz. vinyl baseball tarps that are designed to protect and moisture manage your pitcher’s mounds, home plate areas, bases & bullpens by adding weight to the perimeter of the heavy vinyl fabric.
Since the weight is stitched into the fabric, there are no additional weights required to keep the field tarp in place. So throw those cement-filled cans in a lake!
This new breed of weighted baseball tarp can be taken on and off your infield quicker and easier while offering protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Plus, our brand resists cracking from cold and winter season!

These weighted baseball field tarps are waterproof & stay in place, thanks to weights that are inserted inside a urethane sleeve, then sewn into the perimeter. The standard color generally in stock is forest green. All other colors can take two weeks to fabricate. Please keep that in mind if you have a deadline.
Our Major League style design is almost a perfect circle that, when properly installed, will not harm your surrounding infield grass.
They are specifically designed to fit neatly into the mound or home base dirt circle. Our weighted baseball field tarps will provide optimum long-term or day coverage, winter protection or dirt/moisture management.
