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.
