It was 408 feet from home plate to center field at the old Yankee Stadium. The new stadium has the same dimensions.
The Yankee Stadium of 1923 had a center field distance of 490 feet. Later, in 1927, the field's dimensions were changed.
From home plate to right field is 314 feet in the new Yankee Stadium. The dimensions are the same as the old stadium.
It is 318 feet from home plate to left field in the new Yankee Stadium. The outfield dimensions are the same as the old stadium.
The length varies from stadium to stadium.
314 ft. to the Right-Field foul pole, and 385 ft. to Right-Center. Fun Fact: According to a recent study by AccuWeather, 20% of all the home runs in the New Yankee Stadium would not have been home runs in the old Yankee Stadium. They attribute this to the shape and height of the wall, contrary to the popular belief that is is as a result of wind. Click on the link below for Yankee Stadium information.
When the original Yankee Stadium opened on April 18, 1923, the measurements were, 296 feet to the left field pole, 301 to right and 461 feet to the deepest part of the park, in left-center. The playing field was not evenly balanced, so dead center was not the deepest part. After it was re-modeled in 1974-75, it measured 310 to right, 312 to left and 430 to the deepest part in left-center.
The distance from home plate to left field is exactly the same in both the old and new Yankee Stadiums measuring 318'. The dimensions changed at least 4 times. To answer the question a date is needed.
It really depends on the stadium, most are 310-330 down the lines and 400ft or more to center.
Left centerfield in Yankee Stadium is known as death valley. Today it is only 399 feet from home plate to the deepest part of "Death Valley". At one time it measured 460 feet. Even before they moved the fence in 1988 it measured 430 feet.
When the old Yankee Stadium opened in 1923, it had ridiculous distances (except where Babe Ruth hit most of his homers). Some fences were over 500 feet from home plate. These dimensions underwent several changes, the final set transposed to the plans for the new stadium, so that all distances in the current Yankee Stadium are nearly identical to last set at the old Yankee Stadium. [There is a chart, still on Wikipedia (in green) which shows the old stadium's distances in their historic light.] Click on the links below for more information. Everyone made a good answer to this question. Only because I have the figures on the Stadium at some point in time, I thought I thought I would share them. Left field was 281 feet center field was 490 feet and right field was 295 feet. Congrats to all!
At the start of the 2008 season, center field is 415 feet from home plate.
It depends on the stadium. Typically, the distance is in the 380 feet to 420 feet range.
I think it was Babe Ruth's Boston jersey.
In baseball, the distance between each base is 90 feet.
if you mean the whole thing including the stands and everything, probably the New Yankees Stadium if you mean the field dimensions, i'd say the Detroit Tigers Stadium now, in the history of baseball, the largest offical stadium would most likely be the Polo Grounds, in which dead center field was about 500 feet from home plate, lol
The largest baseball stadium in terms of distance from home plate to center field is Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros. The largest baseball stadium in terms of capacity is the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, home of the Oakland Athletics.
Well I'm not sure, but i think the rockies own the largest stadium.
Babe RuthBabe Ruth hit the first home run at Yankee Stadium on the first game played at the Stadium on April 18, 1923. The 3 run home run helped the Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox, 4-1. Casey Stengel of the Detroit Tigers hit the first home run in Yankee Stadium (the house that Ruth built) as by definition, an in-the-park home run is a hit that sends a batter (with no fielding errors) from home plate, around the bases and back to home plate.Jorge Posada was the first player to hit a home run in the new Yankee Stadium, completed in 2009.
If you're referring to his farewell speech on July 4, 1939, he stood in front of home plate at Yankee Stadium.
There is 90 feet between each base. The amount of foul territory down the lines and behind home plate varies from stadium to stadium. The length of the outfield fences also varies. Usually, the distance down the left field and right field lines is around 330 feet and to center field is at least 400 feet.a baseball field is 180 times 127 feet. i think.
How far is it from 2nd base to center field? The distance from home plate to 2nd base is 127.28 feet (use pythagorean theorem z^2 = x^2 + y^2 or z = sqrt(x^2 + y^2)), so the distance from 2nd base to the fence in dead center is 277.72 feet.
A baseball actually does not have specific dimensions like a basketball court or football field. It would depend on the stadium itself. Here are the approximate dimensions for an average field: 90 ft. from base to base 60 ft. from pitchers mound to home plate 320 ft. to left field wall 375 ft. to left center 400 ft.to center 375 ft. to right center 330 ft. to right

This will vary dramatically based on the field and the specific fielder. Second base is 127 ft from home plate, and the center field wall will typically be between 390 and 440 feet from home plate. Generally, depending on the strength of the hitter, the center fielder will play 300 - 350 ft from home plate.
