### What is the throwing distance from third base to first base in high school baseball?

Bases are different distances apart at different levels of play
in baseball. Here is how you can find the distance across the
diamond (home to second, or first to third) on any field:
What is the distance between bases?
Square that answer (multiply it by itself).
Double that answer.
Find the square root of that answer.
The answer you get will be the distance from home to second or
from first to third.

### What is the distance around the baseball field?

From home to first, first to second, etc.. the distance between
bases is 90 feet. All the way around is 360 feet.
But if you're asking what the distance is around a whole
baseball field, each field is different. Some have much bigger
fields than others. The only thing that is the same is the
infield.

### What are the lengths of the bases in baseball and softball?

It is 60 feet from home to first on
a softball field. It is the same distance between all the bases.
The pitcher's mound is 40 to 43 feet way depending on the level of
competition. The depth of the outfield varies from field to
field.
In baseball there is 90 feet in
between bases. The distance between the pitcher's mound and home is
60.5 feet. As in softball the depth of the outfield varies from
field to field.

###### Asked in Physics

### What is the field strength at a distance one Earth radius beyond the surface?

I assume you mean, of the gravitational field? The gravitational
field is inversely proportional to the square of the distance. At a
distance of 1 Earth radius, the distance from the center of the
Earth is twice the distance at the Earth's surface; thus, the field
strength is 1/4 what it is on the surface. If at the surface the
field strength is about 9.8 meters per second square, divide that
by 4 to get the field strength at a distance of one Earth radius
from the surface.

###### Asked in Baseball

### What is Average size of a Major League Baseball field?

There are no specifications in which the size of the baseball
field must follow other than minimum requirements. This means that
the field must reach this distance as the minimum or go over. The
minimum distance for home plate should be no less that 250 feet,
whereas the foul poles are to be no less than 320 feet. The center
field should be no less that 400 feet.
