  1. I’m thinking about putting something similar to this in our garage for our son to use his Driveline balls. I would be putting this on sheet rock. Any suggestions on how to go about that?

    1. Attaching to sheet rock directly is tough to pull off because it’s generally not going to hold very well. Unfortunately, we don’t have any great suggestions for making this work. If possible, we’d recommend constructing a stand-alone wood structure. Another option is to construct a plyowall board that you can lean against the wall.

  2. We are going to mount a rubber Matt to back of a brick wall. What is the minimum size for this mat and what would be proper height for a 5’11 pitcher.

    1. Emerson – we’d recommend at least a 3ft tall and 2ft wide mat for this. This allows the mat to work as a target for both reverse throws and the rest of the drills done standing up. 2 ft should be sufficient on the width to catch most of the balls, though additional width would add some buffer for less constrained drills (walking wind-ups, drop-steps, etc.) that might see more variance in where the athlete throws them. We’d set this up with the bottom about 3.5 feet off the ground, so the top is at 6’6, slightly above eye level as this will cover the height of most throws.

  3. Thank you for the video!

    I am putting in a plyo wall similar to this in my facility and I am wondering approx how far apart are the beams you have behind the plywood?

    Thanks!

    1. The beams we have behind the plywood face are about 16 inches apart. Feel free to shoot us an email at support@drivelinebaseball.com if you have further questions and good luck with the project!

  4. Looking to install a plyowall for my son in our basement. I want to attach it to drywall. I was thinking two sheets of plywood separated by 2x4s and mat on the visible side.

    1. Derek – if possible, we’d recommend avoiding attaching to drywall, since our experience this has the potential to damage the wall especially if your athlete is a bit older, more developed, and throwing harder. If you have a sturdier surface (wood, brick, concrete) or are able to create a free-standing structure out of 2x4s, those would likely be better options.

  5. I have tried using OSB on 2×6 constructed wall with studs at 16” on center. My son and his team members recently cracked the wall with the 1 & 2 kg Plyo balls. I already bought some 3/4” plywood for overlaying before seeing this video, and like the idea of the horse stall matts. Where did you obtain the horse stall matts and can you give a description?
    I thought my wall was indestructible, but 14-16 year old athletes proved me wrong.
    Thanks,
    Sean

    1. Sean – we’ve definitely seen athletes prove seemingly indestructible plyo walls actually destructible. We use horse stall mats from Tractor Supply. We use the 3/4” thickness mats, but any thickness will work.
