How to Build a Baseball Backstop
The backstop is a barrier that will stop a wild pitch or hit, keeping the ball in play and your spectators safe from harm.
- Step 1
Measure 10 feet directly behind home plate to get the center point of your backstop. Measure 10 feet out left and right of the center point in a parallel line to the base of home plate. Dig an 18-inch hole at these points with the post hole digger.
- Step 2
Measure 10 feet from these holes in a parallel line to the baselines. At the end of the measurement, dig two more 18-inch holes at these points. These are the ends of the backstop.
- Step 3
Pour the dry cement into the wheelbarrow. Mix the dry cement with water using the shovel until it is the consistency of thick mud.
- Step 4
Place a pole in each hole. Fill the hole with wet cement so the top of the cement is even with the ground. Use the level to ensure that the poles are completely straight. Let the cement dry overnight.
- Step 5
Tie one end of the chain link one of the poles on the baselines using the six gauge wire spaced approximately every 1 to 1 1/2 feet. Wrap the wire around the pole and the chain link so it is tightly attached to the pole. Use the ladder to secure hard to reach areas of the pipe.
- Step 6
Unfold the chain link to the next pole. Secure it to the second pole in the same way as you did with the first pole, using the six gauge wire to secure it tightly.
- Step 7
Continue unfolding the chain like to the next two poles and tie to them with the wire. Keep the chain link a taut as possible and secure it tightly with the wire. Maintain the spacing of 1 to 1 1/2 feet between each wire.
- Step 8
Place the pole caps on top of the poles. Use the ladder to reach the pole tops.
