In MLB, no. The last change in mound height occurred at the start of the 1969 season when the height was lowered from 15 inches to 10 inches.

Why is the pitchers mound raised higher than the rest of the field?

It's to give the pitchers an advantage. Of course, these days, there isn't much of an advantage. Back in the 60s, it was raised (the mound was made higher) since the pitchers complained about the batter's advantage. Shortly thereafter, it was lowered to its present height due to the dominance of pitchers like Bob Gibson.


When did major league baseball raise the pitching mound?

Prior to 1903, a pitching mound in MLB could be any height desired by the home team -- even zero if they didn't want any mound at all. From that year until 1968, a REGULATION mound had to be 15 inches higher than home plate. In that year, that height has been reduced to 10 inches. It has been a long-standing cheat for a home team with good pitchers to add height to the mound. Doing so has almost never been caught, simply because mound height (too high or too low) benefits (or hinders) both teams equally -- thus, nobody bothers to challenge it.

Where do pro pitchers warm up before a game?

Pitchers can do their initial warm-ups anywhere, usually some light throwing to warm up their arms in the outfield area. Then they can move into the bullpen where there is a mound and a catcher where the height of the mound and distance to the catcher are identical to the mound and catcher on the playing field. Starting pitchers may use the bullpen for their warm-ups during pre-game ceremonies on the field, then move onto the mound on the field immediately prior to the start of the game, and relief pitchers will use the bullpen prior to going into the game.


When and why was the pitchers mound elevated?

The pitchers mound was created in the late 1800's. It was put in to create a downward angle for the pitches, and to help the pitcher generate speed when sloping downhill. The height was originally 10 inches, but was raised to 15 in 1903. Over the years, hitting went down, and the mound was lowered back to ten inches.
