It is much better for the Little Leaguer (or anyone) to practice pitching off of a mound than on a flat surface. Constructing a dirt mound in the back yard is not easy and it must be constantly maintained. An option is a portable pitcher's mound made from wood and Astroturf. This mound can be built in just a few hours and the cost is around $125.
The materials needed are:
1 - 2x10x12 treated
3 - 2x10x8 treated
