A baseball field without a fence is like a swimming pool without water. It just doesn’t make sense. So if you are building a new baseball field or renovating an existing field, it is important to pay attention to fencing. Your outfield fence helps establish the boundaries of your playing field.
- How long is the field? Remember, chicks dig the long ball, as they say. And what is a home run without a fence? A lot of running…that’s what!
- Without a fence, how do you know what is in play and out of play? It begins to get a little ambiguous, which leads to arguments. And we have enough to argue with umpire over as it is.
Your backstop does more than just give your field visual appeal; this fence also helps protect the crowd from foul balls, while keeping errant pitches from rolling and rolling and rolling…
Baseball Field Fencing in Northern Virginia
When it comes to the choosing the right fence for your baseball field, durability is the name of the game. Just think about the constant beating these fences take game after game, day after day: foul balls, players climbing the fence to try and make a play, and batting practice. Oh batting practice! Youth baseball and softball players love soft toss, throwing the ball in the air and hitting it against the fence. While this might be great in terms of developing proper swing mechanics, it can wreak havoc on a fence. This is why we recommend Vinyl Coated Chain Link (of course, traditional chain link is also an option). While it may cost a fraction more than traditional Chain Link, vinyl coated chain link is still a very cost effective option. It is also incredibly durable and aesthetically appealing. That is what we like to call a win-win!
