The distance from the pitchers mound to home plate (the back of home plate to the front of the pitchers plate) is 43 feet. It was recently moved back from 40 feet to help both the pitcher and the batter with the transition to college ball (which is also 43 feet).

A batted ball that hits the pitcher's mound (or any base) is considered a fair ball. A fair ball that lands out of play is considered a ground rule double.
It takes .58 seconds for a ball traveling 78 mph to go the 60 ft 6 inches from the pitcher's mound to home plate.
46 feet minus 5 feet
If a batted ball strikes the mound and then ricochets into foul territory, before reaching first base or third base, and it isn't touched by a fielder, then it is foul.
the momentum of throwing the ball downhill increases the speed of the ball
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.
Well, that all depends on the pitcher throwing the ball. Some pitchers have been known to throw a ball over 100 miles per hour.
generally no, as a mound will cause odd bounces, and tee ball is usually a league for young beginners, however, if the only field available has a mound, then there is nothing stating you cant play on it
A lot, it depends on the type of pitch. A 4-seam fastball or 2-seam fastball will have more rotations, but a knuckle ball may have little to no rotations, where as the curve ball and slider are in between.
The momentum of throwing the ball downhill increases the speed of the ball and can make curve balls and sliders have more movement in the pitch.
The pitcher pitches from a higher point for the purpose of ball speed. It may not seem like much, but gravity definitely plays its part in an object being thrown downward. Fastballs reach the plate faster thrown from a mound as they do thrown from level ground.
No... But often if the pitcher takes to long the batter will call time out
it depends on where it is. if it is near home plate the catcher should get it. if it is closer to the pitchers mound than the catcher than the catcher should get it. you should call the other guy off if you are getting it so there will be no confusion on who is getting it.
The pitchers foot must stay on the rubber until either, they legally step-off the mound, attempt a pickoff, or release the ball when pitching.
60 ft. 6 inches
The pitcher walked the the mound and prepared to throw the ball.He poured syrup over the mound of pancakes on his plate.
an outside force we call Gravity is the main reason. The seams on the ball also cause the air pressure on the ball to change moving the ball on breaking pitches
Bob Gibson, who set the live ball ERA record with a 1.12 ERA in 1968. The mound was lowered in 1969.
There are certain things a pitcher may not do while within this circle. Fore example, when the umpire puts a new ball in play, some pitchers will spit on their hands and rub the ball up. Done outside this circle, it is legal; done inside this circle, it is illegal.
Yes. If the pitcher is not on the mound and he wipes his hand off before touching the mound and the ball, then it is legal.
this is when the ball goes over the pitchers mound and hits the second base man in the head. The batter gets a hit, but the second basemen has been sacrificed.
