London: Field Photos and Dimensions

Field layout information for the 2010 London Wiffleball Tournament.

Follow @londonwiffle for “unofficial” updates and live scoring from the tournament provided by the PWL.

Bases have not been measured and placed yet. The distances were based on the assumptions that bases would be placed at the proper distances according to the rules, and that second base would be lined up directly centered between the foul lines. Some distances, H to 1, 3 to H, H to 2, are specified in the rules. The other distances vary because the width of the fields vary.

  • Field: Official MLB Foul Lines
  • Width (1st/3rd): 67
  • Angle of Foul Lines: 90
  • Home to 1st: 50
  • 1st to 2nd: 48
  • 2nd to 3rd: 48
  • 3rd to Home: 45
  • Home to 2nd: 68

These are the dimensions using the official baseball…

Bracketology: London Style

Let me start by saying I love the London Wiffleball Tournament and I’m going to keep bringing teams as long as I’m able to do so. I like Brian Wheeler and the guys on the Reds, and I know they do a tremendous amount of work with very little support to put on the tournament every year and I’m glad they do.

I don’t want to be one of those guys that complains about things but doesn’t do anything to help fix them. I’ve been on the receiving end of those kinds of complaints too many times to not appreciate that position. That being said, I think that constructive criticism is a good thing, and people who really love things should be able to give the people who run the things they love ideas to help make it better or correct problems that they see.
