Since various leagues have different size Baseball diamonds, you can use the following formula:
What is the distance between first base and second base? For example, 60 ft.
Square that number (multiply it by itself). For example, 60 x 60 = 3600.
Double that answer. For example, 3600 x 2 = 7200.
Find the square root of that answer (most calculators have the square root function). The answer will be the distance between home and second, also the distance between first and third. For example, 84.85 feet, or 84 feet 10 inches.
If the bases are 60' apart, the distance from home plate to second base is 84'10"
Little League uses a 60 foot diamond
89 feet from the back tip of home plate
From the back of the plate to the front of the base.
Yes, from the center of home plate to the center of first base.
With the exception of Little League and streetball, the bases are always 90 feet apart.
Home Plate is in fair territory.
in little league it is 60 feet and in in the MLB it is 90 feet from one base to the other
Little league 60 feet, Major league 90 feet.
newtest3 about 40 feet ---------- The above is incorrect. In Little League Baseball the bases are 60 feet apart until you get to the Junior Division (13 and 14-year-old).
In little league, where the bases are 60 feet apart, the distance between first base and third base is 84.85 feet. In MLB and leagues where the bases are 90 feet apart, the distance between first base and third base is 127.29 feet.
in little league you have to wait for the ball to cross home plate but every level after little league you can steal at any time you want to no matter who has the ball or where the pitcher is or what he is doing.
