Base Plates

It's the maximum achievement of every batter: a homerun. After the pitcher throws the ball from the pitcher's plate and his bat has hit the ball, he begins his attempt at a homerun from home plate. The batter must then pass three stations: the three bases. Are you looking for these bases and base plates? Then you've come to the right place. Here you will find the right home plate, pitcher's plate and various bases that you need.

Requirements for bases and base plates

The Royal Netherlands Baseball and Softball Federation (KNBSB) specified in the 2019 Vademecum Accommodations for Baseball & Softball the criteria the bases and base plates must meet on the baseball and softball field:

  • Home plate has a pentagonal shape, and the top of the base must lie flush with the gravel top layer. So there must be no height difference between home plate and the playing field.
  • The white tip of home plate lies at the point where the two foul lines intersect. The pitcher's plate has a rectangular shape (15.2 x 61 cm), and the top of the base must lie flush with the gravel top layer must like home plate. The bases have a square shape (38 x 38 cm).
  • In contrast to home plate and the pitcher's plate, the bases must lie on the gravel top layer. In softball the bases have the same dimensions as for baseball, but home plate is a double base (38 x 76 cm). This double base is orange-white in color. The orange part lies in the foul area and the white part in the good area. The double- base is intended to prevent collisions between batters and field players.

All SKOR bases and base plates have anchors so they can be easily fixated.
