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.
The distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate is 60.5 feet. If the ball would be released exactly from the pitcher's mound, it would take approximately 0.43 seconds. But, if you don't want to count that last part of the windup which takes place from the pitcher's mound until the ball is released from the hand, assuming that that distance is about 5 ft, then it takes approximately 0.4 seconds to reach home plate.
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.
60 feet.The same length from the pitcher's mound to home plate.

The distance between the pitcher and home plate changed from 50 feet to 55 1/2 feet in 1887. At this time there was no mound but a box that was 6 feet long and 4 feet wide and the pitcher was required to keep his back foot anywhere on the back of the 4 foot wide box when he delivered. In 1893, the box was abolished and a mound was instituted where a 24 inch rubber plate that the pitcher was required to be touching with his back foot was located. This rubber plate was 60 1/2 feet away from home plate. In 1887, the distance between the pitcher and home plate was moved from 50 feet to 55 1/2 feet but there was no mound. In 1893, the mound was introduced and the distance between the pitcher and home plate changed from 55 1/2 feet to 60 1/2 feet.
in little league the home plate is exactly 44.4832 ft on a baseball regulation mound without a mound it would be about 44.2 ft give or take an error by the people that constructed the field
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.
The size of the pitching rubber in MLB is 24 inches long by 6 inches wide.
No... But often if the pitcher takes to long the batter will call time out
Really all you need is an area that is 45 feet long. If you want you can attach a pitching mound and home plate to the ground, but removable ones work just as well. For any division except 18 U Gold and collegiate pace out 40 feet between the tip of home plate and the pitcher's mound. For 18U Gold and collegiate pace out 43 feet.
The pitcher's mound was introduced in 1893. Prior to 1893, there was a 4 foot wide by 5 1/2 foot long box on flat ground that the pitchers pitched from. The pitcher could put his back foot anywhere along the 4 footback line of the box, which was 55 1/2 feet from home plate, to start his delivery. In 1893, to create more offense, the box was replaced with a raised mound and a rubber slab from where the pitcher could start his delivery. The rubber slab was 12 inches in length and positioned 60 1/2 feet from home plate. With the pitched ball having to travel an extra five feet and the pitcher not being able to use a wide angle to deliver the pitch, the league batting average rose 35 points in 1893 and another 29 points in 1894.
The great serpent mound is 1348-foot (411m)long
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".
A 94 MPH fastball arrives at home plate about 0.42 seconds
From home plate to first base is 60 feet. From home plate to the fence is generally around 200 feet.
The center of the batters box is even with the center of home plate. since the plate is 17" long the this means the front edge of the batters box is 27 1/2" in front of home plate and the back edge of the box is 27 1/2" behind home plate.
There is no distance from the batter's box to home plate. The batter's box is adjacent to the 8 1/2 inch side of home plate. They are 4 feet wide and 6 feet long for major league baseball.
