An off-field bullpen tops the wish list of many coaches. If you want to make that dream a reality, keep reading to learn the process of building an off-field bullpen. 

First, choose a location for the bullpen and remove the existing sod. You may have to also remove some of the existing soil, because all new material will be installed at a four-inch depth.

Next, install the pitching rubbers. Install the rubbers ten inches above home plate, making sure they’re level and in line with each other.

Then you’ll want to install mound clay in front of the rubbers. To lower your costs, consider installing a local infield mix along the sides of the mound, the table, and behind the mound.

Use a slope board to achieve the proper slope on the mound. 

Finish the mound by installing ¼ inch of infield mix for a clean, smooth surface.

Lastly, use four or five bags of calcined clay to condition the area.
