The Batter's Eye or Hitter's Backdrop is a solid dark-colored area behind center field that is used as a visual backdrop behind the pitcher directly in the line of sight of the player up at-bat. This solid dark area allows the baseball batter to see the ball being pitched against a dark and uncluttered background providing a clear contrast for safety and a successful play for the player up to bat with no distractions.

Gorilla Netting's Outfield Batter's Eye is available in a variety of designs and support structures. Depending on your facility's requirements and preferences, we can utilize various structure materials such as steel I-beams, wood poles, steel poles, or even integrate a system into an existing fence.
We can design and install your Batter's Eye as a standard uninterrupted one-piece system, or with a staggard pole layout. Either type of arrangement you chose can be installed by either direct embedment, or with a base plate mounted to anchor bolts.
Our Batter's Eyes typically are installed with appropriate black or forest green color vinyl-coated polyester (VCP), or open mesh polypropylene (OMP) windscreen materials. Alternatively, we can also provide faux foliage materials for your Batter's Eye.
Professionally engineered to meet local wind speeds and seismic requirements, Batter's Eyes that have custom sizes and designs can meet higher wind speeds and seismic requirements if needed.
