    Pitchers mound?

    Pitcher's mound?

    Pitchers' mound?

    Please advise.

    Thank you all.

    Almond Joy's got nuts. Mounds don't.

    Sometimes this board is so helpful.

    Thing is, I laughed at both posts.

    Just say mound and avoid the situation.

    Otherwise, I say pitchers mound. Both pitchers use it. Straight plural, no possession.

    The bump /chipcarey

    I can't tell you how much that fucking term annoys me.

    What? The southpaw gets the pill tonight on the bump. What's wrong with that?

    I would go with mound as well. It's like quarterback sack. You can't sack anyone but the quarterback so just say sack.

    No one else has a mound with a rubber on it. So just say mound.

    I would go with a possessive, if I used it, but I would go pitcher's. Only one pitcher can use it at a time.

    The crafty southpaw hurler will take the mound and toe the rubber in this evening's tilt at the yard.
