    Get familiar with the infield

    The baseball field (sometimes called the baseball diamond) is a specially designed field composed of two basic parts the infield and the outfield. The infield is the center of action. Its defined by four rugged pads set in the ground, called bases, at equal points from each other, forming a square diamond shape. The path from each base to the next is made of dirt, rather than grass. Inside the diamond is a grassy area, and near the middle of that is a low dirt mound with another plate on it called the pitchers mound.he batter (offensive player) stands at one base, called home plate, and waits for the ball to be pitched from the pitchers mound so he or she can try to hit it with the bat. There is a painted rectangle on either side of home plate called a batters box that defines where batters are allowed to stand. Another painted box behind home plate defines where the catcher crouches to catch the ball if the batter misses it.
    While the other bases are four sided and typically made of canvas, home plate is five sided and made of rubber, to distinguish it. There is also usually a tall fence cupped around home plate to prevent stray balls from hitting the audience behind.
    Bases are numbered counterclockwise from home plate first, second, and third. Second base is on a direct line from home plate through the pitchers mound.
    A baseball thats hit and lands to the left of third base or the right of first base (as seen from home plate) is considered a foul ball, which invalidates the play. Foul lines are usually painted on the field to show where the border is.
    There are regulation distances that define a proper baseball infield. Each base is 90 feet (27.4 m) apart from the next. The pitchers mound is 60.5 feet (18.4 m) from home plate.
