Based on the official MLB pitching distance of 60' 6" .. it takes .5 seconds for a 100 mph fastball to reach home plate.

However, in reality, if the Baseball is thrown by a person, it actually reaches the plates quicker because most MLB pitchers are 6'+ and there stride towards home plate will have them releasing the baseball closer than 60' 6".

If the pitchers mound is 60 ft from home plate how many seconds does it take a 75-mph pitch to reach home plate?

75 miles per hour is about 110 feet per second. So a pitch thrown at that speed will reach home plate in a little more than half a second (about .55 seconds). A pitch thrown at 90 MPH will reach the batter in about a tenth of a second less (.45 seconds).
