Baseball Home Plate

Dimensioned plan and elevations drawings of a Baseball Home Plate with measurements for each side

The Baseball Home Plate is the final base that a Baseball player must touch in order to score a run. The Baseball Home Plate is different to the other Baseball Bases as it has 5 sides instead of 4. The purpose of the Baseball Home Plate is different to the other Baseball Bases as it is essential to determine the strike zone. The Baseball Home Plate is made of white rubber and is placed in ‘fair’ territory with its placement being aligned between the right and left field foul lines. The Baseball Home Plate was developed by Robert Keating and was implemented in the 1900-1901 season.

) with the short adjacent edges at 8.5” (21.59 cm). Home plate has a height of 1” (2.54 cm).

Baseball is a competitive sport where two opposing teams take turns batting and fielding a ball with the goal to score the most runs by the end of the game. The game is played when the pitcher from the fielding team throws the baseball to a player on the batting team who tries to hit it with a bat.
