This Soft Touch Double First Base provides the fielder and the runner their own separate base to step on helps reduce the chance for collisions at first base. Bases are "progressive release" bases which are designed to help prevent injuries during short and hard slides. The base is designed to flex and absorb energy as the player slides into the base. In the case of a hard slide, the base "pops off" its mount because of the force applied unlike a stationary base. Bases are made of durable polyurethane that flexes, absorbs energy and is cut-resistant.
Although this base is designed to reduce sliding injuries, it is not a substitute for using proper sliding techniques
Progressive release bases are designed to flex and absorb energy as a player slides into the base. In the case of a short slide, the "progressive release" action allows the base to flex until enough force is applied to "pop" the base free from its mount. Molded from a durable cut-resistant polyurethane. Molded 7" stem fits into a ground mount. White side is anchored in a ground mount that is provided. Orange side is anchored under base with hammer-in spikes that are provided. Although this base is designed to reduce sliding injuries, it is not a substitute for using proper sliding techniques.
