I am a math teacher but I am also the high school baseball coach for a large public high school in California. My students are bright, kind, and motivated. I am proud to be a part of this school and the baseball program. My baseball players come from a variety of backgrounds and interests but all benefit from the experience of being a part of the program.
A quality baseball program promotes leadership skills, teamwork, discipline, provides friendships, and keeps them bonded in school.
Hitting is worked on at every practice - whether it's off a tee, soft toss, or live pitching. It's an incredilbly important part of the game and requires hundreds of reps.
These Turf Home Plate Mats will be used every time we practice batting and will provide the strong footing the players need.
Not only do the players benefit from the footing these mats provide, but they also protect our home plate area from getting completely dug out from overuse. In addition to using these for our batting stations, these mats can also be used in our bullpens. These mats are just an incredibly useful tool that all our players will use every single practice.
