Best Answer

In MLB, the pitchers mound to the rear point of home plate is sixty feet, six inches (18.4m). In Little League Baseball, the mound is 46 feet away, while on Pony fields the distance is 54 feet.
The Major League pitchers' rubber is 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate. It all depends on how long a pitcher's stride is to determine how far the pitcher will actually throw from.

Tim Lincecum is one of the shortest pitchers in the MLB and has one of the longest strides. Ironic.
