    As many of you know, little league is now requiring the use of breakaway bases on all little league fields starting this season (2008). I would like to know if anyone is using this type of breakaway bases and there opinion on them.

    From looking at them I'd say they will be full of dirt and mud and be a pain in the $*!. I've used the ones with the square bottom that goes into the ground and you have to stop the game every time a kid slides into them.

    Those look interesting. I used to work at LL HQ on the grounds crew. We used Roger's brand I believe. Similar to the other one descibed. seem to work well.
