Best Answer

Baseball fields are not uniform. All major league infields are diamonds 90 feet on a side with the pitcher's mound 60 feet, six inches away from home plate. The fence demarcating the end of the outfield is different in every park, carving an irregular arc roughly 380 to 400 feet away from the plate. Some fences are nearly perfectly rounded arcs. Some are much more irregular with cut outs, straight sections, and drastically closer sections one one side than the other. Moreover the height of the fences differs from park to park such that balls that are home runs in one park bounce off a tall fence in others.
