How do you measure the distance from the mound to home plate?

You start at the pointy end of home plate and measure 60 feet 6 inches towards second base. That is where you would place the front of the pitcher's rubber. Then from the middle of the pitcher's rubber you measure 18 inches towards home plate and mark that spot. Measure an 18 foot radius around the marked spot. That is the pitcher's mound boundary. To make sure you're correct, you would then measure from the front of the mound to the front of the pitcher's rubber. It should equal 11 feet 6 inches.

Is it permitted for a pitcher to throw with either hand at his sole discretion and are there any limitations to his doing this or changing?

Pitchers that are left handed place their left foot on the pitching rubber. Pitchers that are right handed place their right foot on the pitching rubber. There is no rule that states which foot the pitcher must place on the pitching rubber at any one time. So if a pitcher wanted to throw lefty for one pitch and righty the next, as long as he conforms to the rules, he is allowed to do so.Actually in accordance with the rules, once the pitcher starts one way with a particular batter he must remain pitching that way until the end of the at bat. He may, however switch on the next batter.To the above paragraph, where in the MLB rulebook can I find that rule?Clarification:I am not sure if that is in the rulebook yet.. It just recently came up in a minor league game where the pitcher and batter kept switching back and forth for 10 minutes to get the righty/lefty or righty/righty type matchup they were wanting and to end the circus the home plate ump made the rule and it was later that day approved by the league
