99 feet.

You can find the distance between home and second on any Baseball or softball field by using the following formula:

A squared plus B squared equals C squared.

A is the distance between home and first base

B is the distance between first base and second base

C is the distance between home and second base.

A squared plus B squared equals C squared. You are looking at an equilateral right triangle. The angle between the line from home plate to first base and from first base to second base is 90 degrees. The distance from home plate to first base and from first base to second base is the same. Using this formula, you can find the distance from home plate to second base no matter what the distance between bases is. (By the way, this works out to about 98.99 feet.)

Actually, the formula is: The square root of A squared plus B squared equals C squared.
