How Measure A Baseball Fence

Baseball Fence

Measuring a baseball field, softball field, or any other sporting field that requires a fence may not be as difficult as you think. Once you have an idea of the field’s required dimensions, all you must account for is the outfield and grand slam area. Figuring out the length of fencing required will also tell you how much fence topper material you need.

How To Measure A Baseball Field For A Fence?

Measuring a baseball field for a fence requires a little bit of math, so read carefully.

  • Measure the length from home base to the foul pole in the outfield.
  • Multiply that measurement by 2.
  • Then multiply the first measurement again, but this time by 1.57 to account for the outfield fence.
  • Add the two multiplied measurements together.

For example, say the distance between the home base and the foul pole is 200 feet.

200 feet x 2 = 400 feet

200 feet x 1.57 = 324 feet

400 feet + 314 feet = 714 feet

You will need 714 feet of fencing for your baseball field, which means you will need 714 feet of fence topper material.

If you are wondering how to measure a softball field fence you can use the same measuring concept, for rectangular fields, measurements are much easier, measuring the length and distance of the field, and multiply each by 1.57 before adding.
