I was wondering how high the pitchers mound was in little league?
6 ft. 6 in. the same as major league
40 or 43 feet
Same as in Major League baseball, 60 feet, 6 inches. Also, the same in high school and college.
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.
First, a pitcher's mound is 10.5 inches high, not ten. It used to be higher, but it was lowered in 1969 following the '68 season in the major leagues when several pitchers had dominating seasons, including Bob Gibson's very low ERA and Denny McClain winning 31 gaimes. Also, the winner of the American League's batting title had only a .301 batting average (Carl Yastrzemski).
In Pony League, the distance from the rubber to the back of home plate is 54 feet. In Little League it is 46 feet and in high school (as well as college & pro) it is 60' 6".
from a 60ft mound they are 90ft and from a 54foot mound they are 80 ft. In the Major league and High School...90ft. Pitcher's mound would be 60ft 6". Little league they are 60ft.
It varys, I play in a 12u league and we pitch from 40 feet but I'm sure in higher league(high school, college, etc.) they pitching mounds will be further away
While there are no hard and fast rules for pitching mound height, there are some generally accepted guidelines for the height of a softball pitching mound. * Professional - 10" * College - 10" * High School - 10" * Little League - 6" * Pinto - 4"
It depends on the league. In 10U softball it is 35 ft, in 12U it is 40ft, and in high school and college level, it is 43 ft.
60' 6" feet from pitchers rubber to rear of home plate in high school, college, & MLB.
10 inches higher than home plate
60'6" same as high school college and professional baseball
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.
they had to move it back 3ft. its about 42ft
A bunch. In fact, the vast majority of major league pitchers have never thrown a no-hitter in major league baseball. Many more have thrown no-hitters in high school or college ball.
