Heigth difference between the top of homeplate and the top of the pitchers rubber.

This is because the rules of baseball say the mound is a distance from homeplate that is less than halfway the distance between homeplate and 2nd base. The distance is the same between each base in order (the same from home to 1st, 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to home.) This results in the distance between homeplate and 2nd equal to the distance between 1st and 3rd. If you draw a line between homeplate and 2nd, and a line between 1st and 3rd, the lines will intersect in the center of the baseball diamond. However, the center point will be behind the pitcher's mound. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to prove the distance from the mound to home is less than the center point, but that is another question. (Hint: The distance squared from home to first plus the distance squared from first to second divided by 2).

On a 90-foot diamond, the distance from the back point of the plate to the front edge of the pitcher's rubber is 60'6".

The distance between homeplate to second base in Little League baseball is 105 feet.

127ft

70 feets

The distance varies based on the league. Baseball (NCAA and MLB) is 90 feet. Softball is between 60 and 90 feet, depending on underhand or overhand, or mens and womens.

The distance from homeplate to left field is different in every ball park but it is normally between 280ft and 340ft.

The distance between the pitcher's mound to the baseball diamond is roughly 60.5 ft. The distance from homeplate to first base is around 90ft. So basically, the homeplate portion of the baseball diamond is 90 degrees. So if you break that in half that's roughly 45 degrees. Then using law of cosine and using the variable C in place of the distance between the pitcher's mound to first base, you get c^2=(60.5)^2+90^2-2(60.5)(90)(Cos 45) which turns out to be c^2=4059.86. Square that and C= roughly 63.717 and that is the distance between the pitcher's mound to first base. The distance between the pitcher's mound and home plate is exactly, not roughly, 60.5 feet. Another respondent asked why it is not a simple 45-45-90 triangle, and the answer to that is because the pitcher's mound is NOT located in the exact center of the diamond. The pitcher's mound is closer to home plate than it is to second base.

60 feet

I'm assuming you mean USA baseball. The distance between home plate and the pitcher's rubber (the center of the mound) is 60 feet 6 inches. The distance between each base around the diamond is 90 feet.

Although the distance may vary between leagues and associations, the pitching distance in 10 and under modified or fastpitch softball is usually accepted to be 35 feet. This distance has changed in some national associations over the past few years, and you may find anything from 34-36 feet. This is measured from the back point of the WHITE part of homeplate (not the black part) to the front-middle of the pitching rubber.

The distance between first and third base is 127.28 feet. Some people think that you can just divide that by 2 to get the distance between the mound and first or third base, but the pitcher's mound does not touch the straight line between first and third. It is actually lower, so the actual distance between first (or third) and the middle of the pitchers mound is 63.72 feet. This is according to the diagram on page 4 of the Official Baseball Rules (2011 edition)

Yes, there used to not be any set distance at all No, the distance between bases has not changed since major league baseball began in 1876. The distance between home plate and the pitchers mound changed several times before it settled at 60'6" in 1893.

60 feet

In professional baseball, the distance from the pitching rubber to home plate is 60' 6". Original blueprints for the "first" field show the distance was supposed to be 60' 0", but the blueprints were misread, thus 60' 6".

150 feet I'm sorry but the answer above is incorrect. the full distance between 3rd and 1st is only 127.28 feet. The distance from 1st to the pitchers mound is 63.72 feet. the same goes for 3rd to pitchers mound.

The distance from the pitchers mound to home plate is 60'6'. The distance between all the bases is 90 feet. the home plate area is in a 26' circle. The distance between home and second base is 127' 3 3/8'. That's also the dimension from first to third base.

60 Feet, 6 inches(Same distance as Pitchers Mound to Home Plate.)

60 feet

Using Google Earth ...... I would say about 500 feet along the left field line.

It will take 1/4 of a second to reach home plate

60 feet 6 inches.

46 ft

The most notable measurements are the 90 ft. lengths between bases, 60 ft. 6 in. distance between the pitchers mound and home plate and the 95 ft. radius length to the outfield grass-line.
