Coach D Review: Morrow Sports A Frame

chris ·

I am in the second year of using my Morrow Sports A Frame pitchers protective screen.  The first thing that jumps out at you is that it is in the shape of an "A" versus the usual shape of a "L" for pitchers protective screen.  I would say both styles will give you equal protection as I have been pretty lucky in not having been hit by a batted ball while throwing batting practice using either type screen.  It does take some time to get use to the "A" shape versus the "L" shape since I had used the "L" for my entire life.  It is very well constructed and both the netting and frame is very durable and appears that it will last a long time.  It is relatively lightweight at 32 pounds.

I think the biggest plus to this screen is the ability to put it up and take it down in a matter of minutes.  One of the batting cages we use for practice does not leave protective screens there, so I take the Morrow Sports A Frame screen with me.  It sets up quickly and is not a big pain to transport back and forth as it fits neatly into the trunk of my car.  It fits right into the price range of comparable protective screens.  I think the biggest reason to purchase this screen would be if you are wanting a mobile protective screen.  There are probably better choices for protective screens that will not be transported back and forth.
