Want your pitcher to take a full stride? Don't like your pitcher landing in a hole on the dirt? The 486 is your mound. This mound is designed to allow pitchers to take their big stride without landing on flat ground and digging a hole after a few pitches. While manufactured with the MLB recommended slope toward home, The 486 will provide a perfect landing location with every pitch. A pitcher will comfortably be able to make pick-off moves without a jarring follow-thru, with our tapered drop-off on the sides and rear. The regulation rubber is removable can be easily replaced if worn or damaged.
