Best Answer

The front of the pitcher's mound to the front of home plate in the Majors should be 60 feet 6 inches.

Batters: Most batters at this level will stand with their back-foot on the back line of the batter's box as much as possible. Some stances (front foot) don't go beyond the front of the plate however most do.

Pitchers: All pitchers start at the mound with their right foot (right handed pitchers) on the front edge of the mound or vice-versa. Pitchers at the end of their stance will (should) go about as far as their are tall. A 6 foot 2 inch pitcher should step out about that far from the mound.

So the distance is only as far as they will be in their stance or end result.
