The suggested length of a field is 200 feet to the fence. However there are no set dimensions for length. If asking about the length to the outfield grass again there is a suggested length which is a 70 feet radius from the pitching rubber.

That would depend on what part of the field you are talking about. Down the left field and right field foul lines the wall is generally 320-330 feet or so from home plate. From home plate to the wall in straight away centerfield can be as much as 430 feet. Each MLB ballpark has its own unique dimensions. Some parks are built to so a lot of home runs can be hit and some parks are built so few home runs can be hit.

90 feet between all bases, including home plate. Thus the term 'Baseball diamond' is really a misnomer, as the infield is actually a square.
