The pitching mounds used in the ballparks are built according to a specific size, namely it has to be 10 1/2" inches tall and 18' inches in diameter. The size of the mound can affect the quality of the game, so keep it in mind.
The pitching rubber is at a height of 10 inches and is the highest spot on the mound.
The distance from the pitcher's rubber to HB is 59 feet, or 60 feet and 6 inches to the back tip of home plate. The mound has an 18 foot diameter and is 10.5 inches tall at the pitcher's rubber, which is located 10 feet from the front of the mound and 8 feet from the back of the mound.
it depends, most of the time yes
The top of the rubber on the pitchers mound is to be no higher than ten inches (25.4 cm) above home plate. From 1903 through 1968, this height limit was set at 15 inches, but was often slightly higher, sometimes as high as 20 inches (50.8 cm), especially for teams that emphasized pitching, such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were reputed to have the highest mound in the majors. A higher mound usually works in favor of the pitcher.
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.
5 feet tall
The Mound Builders built great Mounds like the Monk's Mound which was over 100 ft tall,
There is no height requirement for major league baseball players. I will add this observation though. Generally speaking most scouts recommend pitchers and first basemen to be 6 feet tall. There are exception's to this of course.
Under a rule from 1969, the height of the pitcher's mound is 10 inches in baseball.
