## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

Not sure if i'm in the right section, but here is my problem:

I would like to build a batting cage that is easy to take apart.

I would use 4 * 10 foot steel post of 1 inch diameter.

The netting weight about 50 lb and would be held with cables .

The posts form a rectangle of 12 feets by 45 feets

How much weight sould i put at the base of each post, in order to hold the net up for kids to hit baseball Inside?

Could you also give me the formula used so i can adjust the weight if i want to use a bigger net?

Thanks in advance,

Serge
