Why is a baseball field called a diamond when it is really a square?

rotate a square 45 degrees and what do you get? that's right, a diamond, and from the vantage point of the plate, you're looking at a diamond. since the plate is where it all goes down, it's logical that the term baseball diamond was chosen over baseball square.Actualy this is not true, in baseball the field is called a diamond in error. It is in fact a square, the term diamond is falsely used to mean a rhombus - In geometry, a rhombus or rhomb is a quadrilateral whose four sides all have the same length. The rhombus is often called a diamond, after the diamonds suit in playing cards, or a lozenge, though the latter sometimes refers specifically to a rhombus with a 45° angle.It is said that all squares are rhombuses but not all rhombuses are squares. so the term is false. Most people call it a baseball diamond when it is not, but colocaly that is what it is called so you just cant fix stupid.
