Best Answer

I'm not sure I'm going to answer you question precisely but I'll give you what I know. Because the Baseball diamond is a 90 foot square, the distance is just over 127 ft 3 inches. It's interesting to note that the that the bases are entirely contained within the 90 foot square. Thus the distance of 127 ft 3 inches is from the back point of the home plate to the farthest corner of 2nd base. For the distance from the front of home plate to the front corner of 2nd base, the shortest distance between the two bases, you would subtract 17 inches, the distance from the back of home plate to the front of home plate and then subtract another 17 inches, the distance from the far corner of 2nd base to the near corner of second base, then the distance is approximately 124 ft 5 inches (34 inches less). Hope that helps.

127 feet, minus whatever is between his feet and the back of the plate.

Approx. 93 feet from the point of the plate to the center of second base.

The distance between Home Plate and Second Base is 127 feet, 3 3/8 inches. Standing 5 feet behind the plate, the catcher would be throwing 132 feet, 3 3/8 inches.

The Home Plate Umpire...

No player including the catcher is allowed to block the base unless he has the ball. It would be defensive interference and the runner would be safe. The rule is generally not enforced if the ball and the runner arrive at the same time. The reason home plate is somewhat different than second or third is because a runner does not need to remain on home plate where at second and third, overrunning the bag could allow the runner to be tagged out.

your standing on it....

The level of baseball is irrelevant. From Coach pitch to the majors, home plate is in fair territory. The reason why the plate is the only base that comes to a triangle is because that's the beginning of the foul lines as they extend out to foul pole--which is why the "arrow" of the plate never points to the pitcher. Any ball that has not crossed 1st or 3rd base is not fair or foul until it is touched or goes completely out of play. It doesn't matter where the catcher is, it matters where he touches the ball. The ball can hit the plate and bounce straight up or it could even hit behind the plate. If the catcher touches the ball directly over home plate, it's a fair ball.

It's a fair ball.

Tools of Ignorance

There are nine: a pitcher, standing in the middle of the infield, a catcher straight across from her behind home plate to receive the pitcher's throw, and two players in between first, second and third bases. there are three players in the outfield, spread out evenly.

It is only the "smart" thing to do..

A home plate collision is usually the case of a base runner that was on one of the bases trying to reach home plate in order to score while the other team's Catcher is trying to block home plate in order to prevent the base runner from touching home plate in an effort to prevent a run from scoring and the runner and the base runner usually slides into the Catcher that is blocking home plate which is what one example of a home plate collision is.
