Back Stops Installation Augusta
Baseball is one of the most loved sport across the world. Fans flock together to watch and cheer for their favorite and national teams. To keep these spectators safe from danger, field owners install back stops to prevent the ball from leaving the playing area.
For anyone who is unfamiliar, a backstop fence is the curved structure usually in the rear which acts as a barrier. These fences are usually tall because balls during a softball and baseball can go very high. The purpose of the curve shape at the top is to prevent the ball from flying over the fence.
A backstop fence is usually made of chain links to allow the audience a clear view of the entire field. But we also have other material options for other customers such as vinyl coated fabric.
