Dish. At the plate. "The catcher takes up residence behind the dish." A nice pitch, Here comes the dish ("the pitch") or "He's really dishing it today" ("pitching well). Used humorously to describe a good play on the field.
Dish also means (of food) to serve very hot, as dishes of chili and tacos are commonly served at room temperature. Dishwater is water with bits of food in it after cooking; garbage water is water with bits of garbage in it before cooking.
Dishonest people tend to be deceptive; dishware is what you use to serve their devious plans to others.
Dishonest people are said to have dirty hands; dishwashers are people who clean dirty dishware; dishwashing machines are machines that wash dirty dishware.
Dishonesty may not always be deliberate. Some people think that half-truths and omissions are not lies but dishes are still used to describe these things. Others say that you have actually lied if you use a dish instead of the whole truth. The meaning of dishness is clear: something has been left out, not told completely, or given a wrong value.
In conclusion, dishonesty is using or being treated as if you were used for serving purposes.
Noun. Baseball: a flat, generally five-sided piece of hard rubber or other material that helps to define the area over which the pitcher must throw the ball for a strike and that a base runner must safely reach to score a run on his trip from third base. Alternatively spelled plate, home, and home base.
The baseball plate is one of the most important parts in the game of baseball. It is used by batter to try and get hits off the pitch from the pitcher. It is also where runners go when they attempt to advance around the field. Without a safe place to walk, there would be no plays at all because runners would keep advancing forward until they were caught or reached first base. The plate is therefore very important for its role in baseball's scoring system.
There are two types of baseball plates: home and away. At the beginning of each inning, the umpire will call for any players who have been removed from the game to return to their team's plate. After every out, the umpire will do the same thing to make sure nobody has been left out of the game. If this happens before the end of an inning, then those players will have to remain in their current plate while the rest of the game continues without them.
Each team has a number of plates, usually between ten and fifteen. These objects are placed in front of their dugout to indicate which plate runners should use when advancing towards first base.
Home plate is a pentagon, which is a five-sided form. First base is located on the right side of the field, second base is located at the top of the infield, third base is located on the left side of the field, and home plate is located at the back of the field, where the catcher plays. The center of the plate is flat, but the edges are rounded for safety.
The legal diameter of the ball, bat, and plate are the same: 1 inch (2.5 cm). But the actual diameter of a ball varies from 0.6 to 1.1 inches (15 mm to 29 mm), while that of a bat tends to be between 17 and 20 inches (43 cm and 50 cm) long. So, even though they both have diameters of 1 inch, a baseball bat has much more surface area than a baseball, because so much of it is hidden inside the body. A batter can tell how hard a pitcher is throwing by listening to the sound of the ball against the barrel of the bat. A ball will make a different sound depending on what part of the plate it hits.
There are six surfaces of the baseball diamond: front, back, first-base line, second-base line, third-base line, and home plate. Each of these areas has a special meaning during gameplay.
The front of the baseball diamond is where the game begins.
In baseball, home plate is the base where the batter stands and where a base runner must safely reach in order to score a run. It is usually a chunk of rubber placed in the diamond's front corner. Home plate is ten feet from first base to which it is connected by a line called the pitcher's plate. A second line extends from home plate to third base where it meets a perpendicular line called the third-base line.
From first base, the batter has room to step off the line if he or she wants to face a different direction before returning to the batter's box. There is no such thing as an automatic out at first base; if a first baseman wants to tag a baserunner who is going all-out for second base, he or she can because there are no rules against a first baseman reaching over the bag.
Similarly, there are no rules against a catcher jumping up and tagging a running player who is heading toward second base. In fact, this kind of action is very common during double plays when a catcher may want to throw out a baserunner trying to advance two bases on one play.
While it is possible to reach first base without touching home plate, it is not recommended because it is illegal unless you have the ball in your hand.
