Varsity or not has absolutely nothing to do with the equipment used to meet the guidelines in the rule book. Besides, It really doesn’t make any difference if the mound is built correctly. If it’s a typical mound on a HS field though, its been literally thrown together using whatever soil is readily available, rather than the specific soil mixtures used on higher level mounds. If that’s the case, use the rubber you can rotate with wear, and can be filled.

Get the 4-sided (tube).  As cabbagedad stated, it'll last much longer because you can rotate it when one side is worn. 

There is no need for a rubber w/ a shelf! Proper daily maintenance with good material keeps the area in front of the rubber in shape. 

 

It's best to use a 4-way pitching rubber on the game mound. Reason is so that when the pitchers dig out the clay you have stability with all the clay around the pitching rubber and it will stay in place and not flip out during a game like the step down rubber would. Please fill free to look at our website www.bulldogfieldequipment.com to see the pitching rubbers we invented which last longer and a how to install a pitching rubber Youtube video.
