Colored Baseball Field Diagram
There are so many special features of the baseball game which its players know very well. Although for the beginners who really want to start playing this game as professionals, have no idea about. That is the reason why this article may be helpful for you to find out some explanation about the mentioned game if needed and so to make a great looking colored baseball field plan with the help of one of the best drawing applications – ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one. There are a few terms which are commonly used in baseball, such as, for instance, the term of the “coach's box”.
The “coach's box” is a term which is used in baseball, meaning to be simply the space for both the third and the first base coaches to stand. Such coach usually has a play at his base leaving the coach’s box for signaling the player in order to slide, advance or return to a base. The mentioned “coach’s boxes” are known to be located behind the first and the third bases, being those, where the coaches of those bases are expected to be standing. But it is a common situation when the coaches stand outside the mentioned box. Such boxes are known to be marked with white chalk, but sometimes they are marked with white paint.
There are also other boxes on the baseball field: for example, the so-called “batter's box” is the one, where the “batter” stands being ready to receive a pitch. The mentioned box is usually also marked with the use of white chalk around the “home plate”. The home plate is simply the final base which any baseball player has to touch in order to score. The inside sides of such boxes are known to be watered down before the game. The chalk lines which are known to be delineating the two so-called “Foul Lines” are normally not extended through the mentioned “batter's boxes” very much. The foul lines are meant to be used for helping to judge any batted ball if it is fair or foul. They are used exist for the rules to pertain to the “batter's box” and the “batter's position”.
There are in total two batter's boxes. Each of the mentioned boxes is on each of the sides of the mentioned “home plate”, being 1,2 meters wide and 1,8 metes long. The boxes are centered lengthwise at the center of the previously mentioned “home plate” with the inside line of each of the “batter's boxes” from the nearest edge of “home plate” for 15,24 centimeters. The main rule for any right-handed batter is to stand in the “batter's box” on the left side from the “home plate”. For any left-handed batter this rule is opposite: to stand in the “batter's box” to his right. It is always a batter’s right to occupy a “batter's box”. Although he can do it only once at a time.
Any batter does not have any right to leave his “batter's box” after the pitcher already started his windup. For him to leave the “batter's box”, the batter can do it if the pitcher already engaged the “rubber”, which is simply the white rubber strip which is 18,4 meters from the so-called “rear point” of the home plate. Any pitcher can always push off the rubber with his foot in order to gain the velocity towards the home plate during pitching.
There are the so-called “foul poles” on the baseball field, which are known to be higher than the top of the outfield fence, having a narrow screen running along the fair side of the pole. Thus, every time a ball bounces off this screen, it is known to be called as a “home run”. The foul poles are always known to be painted in yellow color. The mentioned foul poles are helpful for simplifying the process of judging in order to find out if a so-called “fly ball” which hits above the fence line is “fair” or it is “foul”, meaning that it is “out of play”. The poles are simply a vertical extension of the “foul lines”, mentioned above. They can be found at the edge of the baseball field with their outer edge of the foul lines and foul poles defining the “foul territory”. Both the poles and the lines are known to be in so-called “fair territory”. It is interesting to know that the “fair territory” is different in a game of football and a game of baseball.
There is also such term as a “regulation mound” on the baseball field, which is simply a mound 5,5 mete in diameter with the center of 18 meters from the rear point of the “home plate”, which is on the line between “second base” and “home plate”. The mound starts to slope downward 15,2 centimeters in front of the pitcher's rubber and the front edge of the “pitcher's plate” of 46 centimeters behind the center of this mound, making the front edge's midpoint 18,44 meters from that rear point of the home plate.
It is well known that the top of the baseball field shouldn’t be higher than 25,4 centimeters above the home plate and a higher mound usually favours the gaining more leverage pitcher and put more downward velocity on the ball involved in the game of baseball. He can always do it by making it more difficult for the batter to strike the ball with the “bat” (a smooth contoured round wooden or, sometimes, metal rod, used for hitting the ball in the game of baseball. The diameter of the bat is smaller at one end (known as the “handle”) to compare to the other (known as “barrel-end”) and the bottom end of the handle is known to be called as the “knob”.
A batter is a baseball player who uses the “bat” for striking the ball. His main task is to try to strike this ball in the so-called “sweet spot”, which is the one near the middle of the barrel-end of the bat for managing to “bat the ball”, meaning to hit it with the bat into either fair or foul territory. "Batting around" means "having every player in the line-up for taking a turn at the bat during an inning." Any team with good hitters has a lot of "bats". Thus, the baseball players can get the so-called “bats” in their line-up that they are hard to beat in case they keep on hitting.
