# What are the dimensions of the pitcher's plate?

# Why is the pitcher's mound exactly 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate?

Legend has it that a proposal was made to move it back to exactly 60' 0" (from 45' 0"). But due to sloppy handwriting, it looked like 60' 6" so they moved the mound back to that distance when constructing fields. For no apparent reason, they just decided to keep it that way.

# How far is it from the pitcher's mound to the home plate in middle school baseball?

Good question. Generally speaking you have two different levels of baseball being play during Middle Schools. Most kids are playing Major Little League up until the age of 13. Which is generally up till the 6th grade. Once the kids are over 13 or the 7th grade they then play Junior Baseball. While a… child is in the Majors the mound is 46 feet from home plate. Once they move up to the next level then the mound is 60 ft 6 in from home plate. Charles ( Full Answer )

# What is the difference between a pitcher's command and a pitcher's control?

Great question. The pitchers command means that his pitches are doing what he wants them to do. If his intent is to throw a curve ball, then the ball will curve. The pitcher has control when the pitches he throws are staying in the strike zone like he wants. If he wants to throw a ball, then he is t…hrowing balls. your curveball can curve, your breaking ball can break, your slider will slide, and your fastball is fast.... however if you can't get it over the plate ( or reasonably within range), you have no control.

# Is it further to second base from the pitcher's mound than it is to home plate?

# What are the dimensions of home plate?

Answer Home plate is an irregular pentagon. The front is 17 inches wide, faces the pitcher, and defines the width of the strike zone. Then parallel sides 8.5 inches long connect to the foul lines. Finally 12 inch sides run down the foul lines, connecting where the foul lines meet. It can be thought… of as a 17 inch square with the parts that would be in foul territory removed. It is probably more conceptually correct (though more geometrically difficult) to picture it as follows: .
Start with a standard 12 inch square base, whose back corner forms the meeting point of the 2 foul lines, and whose front corner points to the pitcher. .
The square has a 17 inch diagonal parallel to the pitching rubber. Draw another 17 inch line, parallel to this one, using the front corner of the square base as the line's center. Fill in the rectangle defined by these two 17 inch lines. Thus you're left with a 17 inch by 8.5 inch rectangle facing the pitcher on a 12 inch square whose exposed sides point to first and third base. The rectangle defines the strike zone. The square defines fair territory and the placement of the bases. Note: The figure described in the official rules of MLB, as well as above, is technically impossible. One of two things must be true to make it possible: .
the parallel sides of 8.5" are in reality approximately 8.5295" (the square root of 71.75) .
or the 12" sides that run along the foul lines are approximately 12.0208" (square root of 144.5) The latter is more likely the case, as it would produce the angle measurements of 90Ã‚Âº at the base and rear point and 135Ã‚Âº at the sides. ( Full Answer )

# What is dimension?

A dimension is a measurable extent of some kind, such as length,breadth, depth, or height It is best illustrated as a direction inwhich one can move. In our 3-dimensional world, we can move up anddown (height) left and right (width) and nearer and farther(depth). There is also the dimension of time …which allows formovement and change to take place but currently it is believed thattime moves in only one direction (referred to as time asymmetry)and so really only counts as half a dimension. A single point, which is unable to move, is the 0th dimension, aline is 1 dimensional, as you can only move along its length, aplane (like a piece of paper) is 2-dimensional as you can move leftor right and up or down along its surface and a solid is3-dimensional, having height, width and depth. Dimensions are what we measure size in. The first is length/height,the second is width/breadth, the third is depth and the fourth istime. Movies have three dimensions which are length, width andtime. A picture has only two and a line on paper supposedly has oneand real life has all four. ( Full Answer )

# What are dimensions?

We humans view the world in three dimensions of space and one of time. You could say that one dimension is width the second height, and the third is depth (the order of these is arbitrarily chosen). The fourth dimension of time is when an object appears at a specific location. An object that is …two dimensional is flat; it has no depth. An example is a piece of paper. A photograph or a map can be a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional world. So a shadow is a two dimensional projection onto a (flat) surface of a three dimensional object. Some conjecture that time is the fourth dimension, while others call the fourth dimension "space-time" to reflect how space bends out of three dimensions when gravity gets involved. For an interesting discussion, read Steven Hawking's A Brief History of Time , which is probably available at your local library. Other contributors have said: .
They are depth width and length of an object .
Some 'string' theories hold that there are 6 or 9 or 10 dimensions of space and one of time .
A dimension is a concept ( Full Answer )

# What are the dimensions?

The dimensions as we know them currently break down as follows: 1: An infinitely small point 2: A line- a point with only width 3: A plane- a line which know has height and width 4: A solid- a line with breadth, depth and width 5: Movement/change- generally referred to as time. Since the 1st dimen…sion is effectively non-existent, we start counting at the line which is why a solid, like a cube, is considered 3 dimensional and not 4 dimensional. The dimension of time is really only half a dimension, as we are only able to move in one direction through it (this is referred to as time asymmetry) rather than having a full range of motion. String theory currently postulates as many as 11 dimensions though currently we do not have any descriptions of them. Though they are generally believed to be extremely small (subatomic) and curled up very tightly. ( Full Answer )

# What is the Dimension?

"another universe, but also, an alternate universe, a parallel earth." This above is correct, but vague. A dimension is a property of an object. That object could be anything at all. But when you describe that object, you will have to describe the properties of the object, and you will generally b…e describing dimensions without knowing you are doing it. In actuallity there is a limit to the properties (dimensions) of an object, but for the most part it can be thought of as a huge number of properties. So for a simple example. I will describe the dimensions (properties) of a box. The box is 10 cm wide, 10 cm tall, and 10 cm deep, and is rectangular. It is sitting with the bottom of the box raised on the left side 5 degrees above the planar. The box is Red. It is not moving. And if you touch the box, it has a sandpaper like feel to it. The box is 10 cm directly infront of you. So we have described relative to your perspective, the XYZ location of the box, its length, width, and height, its relative shape, its velocity, the radiation wavelength it is emitting (color), and its texture, which is a description of 10 dimensions of this object. There are far more dimensions to this object, but for simplicity we will leave it there. Be careful to understand however that some dimensions are related, however in the above example all of these are independent of one another. Meaning that the texture of the box does not determine its velocity, the velocity alone does not determine the color, etc. So these would not be related at all, hence why they are called independent dimensions. Now let me clarify the above answer to make it less vague. How can an object that is the same in every way except location, be an entirely different universe? Take for instance the painting, the Mona Lisa. If it was not on display and was instead always in a box never to be seen, it would not create the fame, and interest in the picture and all the other dimensions of what we experience. We would not even be able to describe the basic physical properties of the painting in any dimensionality. We would probably not even know that the picture existed at all, pretty much like most art that has ever existed. I hope that answers your question. ( Full Answer )
