Home plate tarps are essential for keeping your team’s baseball field game ready. In minutes heavy rain can cause damage to the batter’s box that will take days to repair. Professional grounds keepers will deploy home plate covers after each practice or game plus keep them in place the entire off season. The most common baseball field home plate size is 26’ but we can build any size.
Traditionally home plate covers are secured using ground spikes but those are time consuming to install and remove. Other manufacturers, offer home plate tarps with chain sewn all the way around the hem which are nice in theory but difficult to install due to its weight plus this design flaw creates a home plate shaped pond each time it rains.
In 2020 Lookout Mountain Tarp was the first manufacturer to correct these problems with a new loaded hem design that drastically reduces the tarp's weight plus allows rain water to naturally flow off. With this design the tarp stays in place without spikes for 99% of all weather. In the event extreme weather is expected or the field will not be used for an extended period ground spikes can be installed to fully secure the tarp through the included grommets.
Our preferred fabric for baseball home plate tarps is 18-ounce vinyl coated polyester. This fabric features excellent UV resistance and has proven its durability for generations around MLB parks. It is assembled using heat seal seams which are virtually invisible and 100% waterproof. The outer perimeter is folded to create a 2-ply thickness known as the hem. This hem is sewn with a double lock stitch using our rot resistant 207 polyester bonded thread. Brass #4 rolled rim locking spur grommets are centered in between each of the loads.
