MacGregor® Waffle-Style In-Ground Home Plate
Product Review (submitted on April 29, 2013):
If it rains where you live, this is the home plate to buy. I have replaced dozens of the wood HPs due to the crazy fact that wood absorbs moisture!!!! If you place wood in the soil, where there is moisture, do you think it will rot?? Yes! I am surprised I haven't seen mushrooms growing around the wood plates. Every wood plate I have gone to adjust or remove, when I lift it out of the ground, the wood is completely saturated and it simply crumbles to pieces if bumped slightly, leaving another mess. Great idea from 1938. This is 2013.
