Home plate, formally designated home base in the rules, is the final base that a player must touch to score. Unlike the other bases, home plate is a five-sided slab of whitened rubber that is set at ground level. The use of rubber was developed by Robert Keating, who pitched one game for the 1887 Baltimore Orioles. Previously the plate was made of stone, iron, or wood.
Keeping with the tradition of a wooden home plate, Tim Kuncis resident artists for Barnwood Sports Design has created a heirloom series of wooden home plates that celebrate the greatest players in the games history.
