I was wondering what the idea of the square was…....oh… diamond.
I was thinking that it should have been shaped like home plate. But this works too.
I really like the idea of the astro-turf. I would still add that even if I shaped it like home plate. They just go together.

Well done.

Thats awesome!! Well done! I’m actually making a baseball display case for Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter ball from the Dodgers Cubs game this past year.

Neat cabinet pattzy.

Lucky it’s not a eunuch, otherwise you’d have no balls to display.
