Tricks of the Trade - Building a Base Rack

How many of you are dealing with bases lining the floor of dugout storage rooms?

This past week the J&D Turf team was at the P&G Cincinnati MLB Urban Youth Academy.  While at the academy base racks were installed in the dugout storage rooms.  Complicated design?  Expensive?  No, just a few 2x4's.  Let's look into the process.

First a 2x4 was cut and installed on the cement block wall using Tapcon Anchors.  Next, shorter 2x4's were screwed into the wall installed next to the concrete block.  Note the 2x4's are spaced at the width of the anchor.  Finally, a final 2x4 was installed across the smaller 2x4 running parallel to the 2x4's installed into the cement block.  Here is the process in photos:

As you can see, this was a quick and simple project.  Material costs were less than $50
