A good question and let me see if I can remember some basic geometry here. We know that it is 60.5 feet from the pitcher's rubber to home plate. We also know that it is 90 feet from home plate to the pitcher's mound. So using the Pythagoreum Theory, which states that the sum of the squares of the sides of a right triangle (distance between home and rubber, distance between first base and rubber) are equal to the square of the hypotenuse (distance between home and first base). This equasion is

a2 + b2 = c2 where a is the distance between home plate and the pitching rubber, b is the distance between the pitching rubber and first base, and c is the distance between home plate and first base. So using the information we already know, we can say that:

60.52 + b2 = 902 next, multiply to find the squares

3660.25 + b2 = 8100 next, subtract the 3660.25 from both sides of the equasion

b2 = 4439.75 next, find the square root of 4439.75

b = 66.631449031219484653750691943936

The distance between the pitching rubber and first base is 66.631449031219484653750691943936 feet.

--------------------------------

The above answer is incorrect, because it assumes that the pithcer's mound is at the exact center of the diamond, when it is, in fact, closer to home plate than 2nd base. The triangle described above is not in fact right, so the Pythagorean Theorem cannot be used. The below answer is correct.

PM to 1st = PM to 3rd = 63.717 feet, Law of Cosines:c^2=(60.5)^2+90^2-2(60.5)(90)(Cos 45 degrees)

PM to 2nd = 66.779 Feet, Pythagoreum Theorem and Subtraction: c^2 = 90^2 + 90^2, c minus 60.5

How far is the pitcher from the batter?

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.

How far is the pitcher from home plate in a MLB game?

When did major league baseball raise the pitching mound?

Prior to 1903, a pitching mound in MLB could be any height desired by the home team -- even zero if they didn't want any mound at all. From that year until 1968, a REGULATION mound had to be 15 inches higher than home plate. In that year, that height has been reduced to 10 inches. It has been a long-standing cheat for a home team with good pitchers to add height to the mound. Doing so has almost never been caught, simply because mound height (too high or too low) benefits (or hinders) both teams equally -- thus, nobody bothers to challenge it.
