Baseball fans sometimes refer to home plate as "the dish." It's thought that this nickname references the home plate's likeness to a clean white dinner plate.
Confusingly, baseball aficionados also sometimes refer to particularly good pitches as dishes. They may also say a pitcher who's performing well is "dishing it." Hopefully, context will tell you whether dish refers to home plate or a sick pitch.
