A misnomer of the baseball term “Base paths” which refers to the imaginary line from the center line (unmarked) between first to second to third base. It also includes the line (marked) from home to first and from third to home The runner is not allowed to leave this imaginary line to avoid being tagged out, unless the runner is avoiding a player fielding a batted ball.

The variation derives from a mispronunciation of the term “base path” where the “th” in “paths”, is lazily spoken resulting in a “Z” or “D” sound at the end of the word.

Background:
On the New York Mets Message Board August 28, 2010, poster “C0bra” Insulted fellow posters for not having heard of the term “Base Pads” and continued to insist that it was in fact, a real baseball term. Poster “Ilikethemets” was first to call out the mistake, hilarity thus ensued.
“you don't know what a base pad is? wow do you even watch baseball lol” -C0bra
