So third base used to mean touching of the private parts below the waist, and now a lot of people regard it as oral sex.
The three bases and the place where the batter is standing while hitting the ball (home plate) make for a rhomboid (see the picture), and the claiming is done by touching the bases which are represented by white squares.
So from the home plate, the batter needs to claim the first base first by touching it, then the second, then the third before the opponents do the same by getting the ball there.
The step-up from kissing, but also a more vague term as it signals touching of the more interesting body parts like butt and boobs.
