I believe that by high-school, they use MLB regulation length bases and mounds. Saying this, it should be 60'6''.
6 ft. 6 in. the same as major league
40 or 43 feet
60' 6" (standard distance for high school and up)
in high school, the distance was changed this year from 40 to 43 feet. this gives the hitters an advantage
no they are not
In Major League Baseball, the distance from the pitchers mound to home plate is 60 feet, 6 inches. does that mean from the edge of pitching rubber to the very edge of the home plate or to their center..i.e. 60 feet 6 inches....
The distance from home plate to the pitcher's mound in Little League is 46 feet. High school, college, and Major League Baseball standard is 60 feet and 6 inches (a mistake in measuring long ago but was left that way). Pitcher's mound distances are ALWAYS measured from the front of the rubber to the rear tip of home plate.
My son was on the grouds crew for a AAA minor league team, and I saw them build a mound in the indoor batting cages. I was told by the head grouds keeper that the mound is 12 " above home plate with a 1" fer foot drop going from the mound toward home plate. Also, the top area of the mound, a 24" circle is totally flat around the mound, something I never knew before.
It is 60 feet from home to first on a softball field. It is the same distance between all the bases. The pitcher's mound is 43 away in college softball. The depth of the outfield varies from field to field.
