Repair and maintenance
Repair and Maintenance

  • Lightly water mound, batter’s boxes and catcher’s station and cover with a tarp when not in use. If this is not possible, cover them with a light coating of Pro’s Choice infield conditioner to maintain the correct moisture level.

  • Sweep out any divots and use a rake to level off any high spots. Moisten the area to be repaired. Fill the divots with Pro Mound clay and tamp firmly. Cover with infield soil and tamp again.


Tips from the pros
Tips From the Pros

  • Water thoroughly between layers. Applying dry mound clay into moist strengthens the bond between layers.

  • Pro Mound has an infinite shelf life. Add water to dry material, allow to sit for 2-3 hours, and clay will be pliable and ready to install.

  • Packing clay should not be mixed with other materials. Use the purest form of packing clay to ensure long lasting wear.


Tips from the pros1
Tips From the Pros

  • On a tight budget? Install your mound on a smaller base and expand to standard size over time. The original install will remain intact for years.

  • For that finished mound look, lightly tamp infield dirt into the Pro Mound and rake Pro’s Choice Select over the infield mix.
