This batting practice barrel comes with a spring-loaded shelf that raises and lowers with the weight of the balls so players and coaches never reach to the bottom for a ball again! The shelf is made with a wire frame that holds only balls, not water, to protect balls from moisture and damage. In addition, a secure lid shuts tightly to keep water and other elements out. Plastic construction is light (13 lb empty), and paired with a handle and 2 wheels, makes it a breeze to transport. Holds up to 20 dozen baseballs or 8 dozen softballs (official size). Balls not included.
