Hey all. i'm thinking of making a homemade net in the backyard to practice some pitching/tossing and perhaps some golfing. anyways, ive been thinking of making it out of a large tarp(6'x8'), some abs/pvc tubing as a frame, and some bunji cords to connect the net to the frame. do you guys think this would hold up to a baseball? of course i probably only throw at like 55-65 mph(i'm 23 but ive never really played baseball before).
has anyone made their own net with success?
where do i get cheap baseballs anyways? i tried looking on ebay and the cheap balls usually become uncheap by the time they sell. i'll check out some of the local sports stores last this week, but i dont know if they'll have anything cheap yet since its still snowing here.
