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.

How do you know which plate is being subducted?

The colder, more dense plate is the one that subducts in a collision between two plates. In an oceanic to oceanic plate collision it is the older of the two plates that will subduct due to its higher density. In an oceanic to continental plate collision, it's the oceanic plate that will subduct because of its higher density.

What causes Subduction at deep-ocean trenches?

Subduction is a result of a collision between two tectonic plates, either oceanic to oceanic collision or oceanic to continental plate collision. The heavier, or more dense plate sinks under the more buoyant less dense plate, and is drawn down into the upper mantle.

Does ocean to ocean collision make mountains?

No. It is the collision between two tectonic plates that can cause mountains. For example: when the Indian plate collided into the European plate, the Himalayan mountains were formed.
