Over the last several years we’ve used a number of different throw down bases. We have struggled to notice the difference, frankly. Some are orange and some are white. Some have more height while others are more flat. We’ve come to accept, like many have, that the least expensive set of throw down bases are the best. As such, that would make the BSN orange throw down bases, found at Amazon for less than $15, the best set of throw down bases we could find.
Is it even possible to review throw down bases? Uh, you throw them down on the ground, and then play. They exist! Indeed, it’s far fetched to think we found something extraordinarily unique. But we try nonetheless.
Throw Down Base construction
The BSN bases are thin, heavy and durable. This keeps them out of the wind, pinned to the ground and a part of your baseball and softball arsenal for years and years to come. They are made of rubber and, as such, easily transportable and can fit in just about any place you can shove them.
It comes in 5 pieces, as the pictures make pretty clear. A pitching rubber, home plate and three bases come in a four pound box.
Throw Down Base Uses
These bases will work indoors in a gym and stick nicely to a floor or outside in the grass and keep their relative position. They will work for a portable tee-ball field, an impromptu wiffle ball field and serve as practice bases for any level of softball, fastpitch or baseball.
Throw Down Base Popularity
Of note, these orange BSN throw down bases are the best selling item on Amazon in the baseball and softball categories. No surprise there. They’re cheap, easy to port around and have a million different uses for the pick up game or the more organized gig.
We usually reserve these pages for performance bats with an occasional exception. (See this best fastpitch bat article, for example). We’ve reviewed bags, gloves and handful of other smaller items. But we’ve never quite come around to reviewing something so very simple. But, due to their popularity, we thought there some value in having a landing page.
Throw Down Base Recommendation
If you are looking for a set of throw down bases we simply couldn’t see anyone going wrong with these orange BSN bases. They are cheap, easy to spot and heavy enough to stay in the same place. We’d recommend these BSN orange bases to just about anyone.
