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
1 - 2x4x8 treated
1 - 1/2x4x8 treated plywood (3/4" will give a stiffer surface)
1 - 4x8 Astroturf
1 - can 3M Hi Strength spray glue OR two quarts contact cement.
100 (approximate) - 1 1/4" deck screws
1 - handful of 3" deckscrews or 12 penny nails Steven Ellis Former Chicago Cubs pitching pro Baseball Pitching Instruction
