HOMEPLATE: The fourth station to be reached by the runner. The offensive team is credited with one run every time a player safely crosses this base. A pitched ball must cross the plate when thrown by the pitchers to be credited as a strike on the batter. (http://www.storm.aapt.com.au/glossary_h.htm)


Also:

Home base:
The last of four points a player must touch to receive a run. It is marked by a rubber slab. Home base is a five-sided beveled slab that measures 17 inches by 17 inches, with two of the corners cut off so that the two parallel sides are 8.5 inches long and the two sides that come together to make a point are 12 inches long.(http://www.mystudentathlete.com/Sports_Central/softball/term...
