Starting at home plate, all the way around in a square, each base is 90 feet apart. Then the pitcher's rubber is 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate.

the foul lines come directly to the point on the back of home plate. that is why a ball off the plate is a fair ball

You would use "around" in this situation, as it implies a direction and not a shape. "He went AROUND the corner." However, in some situations, you may round a corner. For example, a baserunner in baseball passing by third base and heading for home plate can be said to round the corner towards home, in reference to the path in which the runner takes around the basepath. Rather than running a straight line to third base and then a straight line to home plate, the runner takes the corner at full speed and thus, ROUNDS the corner in an arced path.

A circle is a shape with all points the same distance from the center. It is named by the center. The circle to the left is called circle A since the center is at point A. If you measure the distance around a circle and divide it by the distance across the circle through the center, you will always come close to a particular value, depending upon the accuracy of your measurement. This value is approximately 3.14159265358979323846... We use the Greek letter (pronounced Pi) to represent this value. The number goes on forever. However, using computers, has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal point.The distance around a circle is called the circumference. The distance across a circle through the center is called the diameter. is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter. Thus, for any circle, if you divide the circumference by the diameter, you get a value close to . This relationship is expressed in the following formula:where is circumference and is diameter. You can test this formula at home with a round dinner plate. If you measure the circumference and the diameter of the plate and then divide by , your quotient should come close to . Another way to write this formula is: where · means multiply. This second formula is commonly used in problems where the diameter is given and the circumference is not known (see the examples below).The radius of a circle is the distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle. If you place two radii end-to-end in a circle, you would have the same length as one diameter. Thus, the diameter of a circle is twice as long as the radius. This relationship is expressed in the following formula: , where is the diameter and is the radius.

The bases are 90 feet apart. From home plate to first base is 90 feet. From home plate to second base is 180 feet. From home plate to third base is 270 feet. From home plate around the bases and back to home plate is 360 feet. (That's farther than from goal line to goal line in football.) From first base to third base is 180 feet.
