We are doing a couple of capital improvement projects at our little league field. The most exciting one is repairing and renovating the backstop. We would like to put in a 3’ wall with a stone cap on top. Anyone know if little league baseball speeds would damage a brick wall? Any other decorative suggestions?
I play in several parks with that same set up and the pitch/foul ball speeds are considerably higher, a ball is not going to cause damage. Also on the bright side, less scoring due to passed balls and wild pitches.
Those walls are very nice looking, and changes the overall appearance of the park. Good quality brick work will hold up for good while. I would recommend padding behind the plate. Baseballs will be scuffed and cut more often, and deadening the bounce back makes a past ball a penalty.
