Baseball infield turf tarps protect the grass directly in front of home plate during batting practice. Both natural and artificial turf is highly prone to damage in this area so baseball field tarps are an essential part of keeping your field game ready. This style of infield turf protector has a trapezoid shape that covers from the 1st base line to the 3rd base line.
The images above display three standard sizes of batting practice turf protectors plus we also accept custom orders. These standard sizes are designed for use with a 26' home plate. Regardless of the size selected the tarp will start 12'9" up the foul line which is 9' straight out from the back tip of home plate. At 52' across by 17' deep the small size is our most popular choice and teams tell us it defelts over 80% of ball strikes. The medium size extends out an extra 4.5' and the large size reaches almost 9' farther than the small size.
Baseball turf protectors are constructed of an 8-ounce vinyl coated polyester windscreen mesh fabric. The mesh pattern is 20% open allowing water, air, and sunlight to pass through so the tarp can be left in place for hours without disrupting turf growth. To avoid batter distractions we highly recommend using either the navy blue or spruce green color options.
The tarp's perimeter is folded over creating a 2-ply hem. If you plan to secure the tarp using ground spikes select the grommeted option which features #2 brass grommets every 3'-4' around the hem. For quicker setup select the chain weighted option which features a two pound chain pocket sewn about every 4' around the hem. Either way the four corners will feature a hand pull loop used to quickly stretch the tarp into position.
