There are not set dimensions for backstops or where the fences are located in the field. There are rules stating that dugouts cannot be more then 25 ft from the foul lines, so considering where dugouts are in relation to the backstop that would provide some sort of standards, but to answer your question, no there is no set rule for backstops specifically
