As baseball & softball coaches, we need a certain number of products to run an effective practice. The bownet big-mouth baseball & softball net can definitely help you this season…just like it helped me!
Just head to a travel tourney and you will see them (or their competitors) popped-up all over the place!

First, let me tell you how I got hooked on this product. I was “turned on” to the bownet during our 2016 season.
I saw them frequently, but I had purchased too many “pop-up” nets in the past that I didn't work. So I stayed away.
Then, when playing an away game, the opposing coach kindly offered to allow us to use theirs. Two of my players quickly responded “Coach we can set it up for you. We use these with our travel team all the time.”
And “BOOM” 2 minutes later there it was. Two sturdy sock-nets that allowed my players to go through a productive pre-game hitting routine at someone else’s field.
This was MUCH better than what we were doing prior. Which was, in a nutshell, nearly killing each other doing “live” soft-toss hitting to the outfield.
Just imagine 10 girls spread out in the outfield looking like they are playing dodge ball with teammates hitting softballs at them. Yes, I’m embarrassed to admit it but that is what we did for away games. FOR YEARS.
OK, we were a lot safer about it then that. But it wasn’t good.
Below is a short video highlighting the newest BowNet option, the Big-Mouth X! This is a 7x7 sized net, but they have a few other sizes available as well.
So needless to say, after my introduction to the bownet big-mouth product I quickly used the budget money I had left and purchased 2 of them.
So don’t come to our away games to watch pre-game dodge-ball…we don’t play it anymore…sorry.
Update: At the time that I originally wrote this article, we had mainly used the bownet for pre-game hitting. We are now a few weeks into our fall season, and use these nearly every day.
If you want to do some pre-game hitting drills, (especially at a tournament or an away game), then these are awesome!
Need to isolate skills with your infielders? Then these are great!
If you want to have your outfielders throw to a cut-off for drills without having to use a spare player, then consider the BowNet.
Don’t have enough infielders to take throws at bases? These are perfect to take their place.
Need your pitchers to do a work-out but don’t have a catcher? Then get a BowNet!
If your daughter or son wants to work on hitting, throwing, or pitching at home…the BowNet baseball/softball big-mouth will be perfect!
The Bownet Big-Mouth Net has multiple uses and I highly recommend it for your program!
