Softball Bases

Elevation and plan drawings of the different Softball Bases showing dimensioned analysis of their length, width and height

Softball Bases are the 4 bases that a Softball player must touch to score a run in a game. All Softball Bases, except for the Home Plate and First Base, are of the same size and shaped like a diamond. The First Base is known as a double base and was designed to minimize player collisions. Half of the First Base is white and the other half is green or orange. The fourth base, known as the Softball Home Plate has 5 sides. All Softball Bases are made of a canvas material and are placed at each corner of the Softball infield square.

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.
