    Home Plate in a game of Baseball, it is the white diamond plate on the ground. Baseball has many unique terms to describe events that happen in a game. It is not necessary to learn what they all mean unless you have fun playing or watching baseball.

    It's hard to tell from that picture, but home plate is not diamond-shaped. It's actually a 5-sided polygon with the three sides of a square in front and two sides tapering to a point in the rear portion. The baseball infield (the part with the bases) is called a 'diamond', and has four sides.
