Best Answer

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.

What is the distance to second base from where? It's 70 feet from 1st base to 2nd base...70 feet from 2nd base to 3rd base...and it'sabout 99 feet to 2nd base from home plate

The baseball playing field (or diamond) is shaped like a diamond. There are three bases (first, second, and third) are on the corners away from home plate. The distance between these bases (on the basepath or distance straight from first base to second base, or second base to third base, etc.) is 90 feet in Major League baseball. In Little League, the distance in 60 feet.

35 feet from the rubber to the back of home plate.

360 feet

Since various leagues have different size baseball diamonds, you can use the following formula: What is the distance between first base and second base? For example, 60 ft. Square that number (multiply it by itself). For example, 60 x 60 = 3600. Double that answer. For example, 3600 x 2 = 7200. Find the square root of that answer (most calculators have the square root function). The answer will be the distance between home and second, also the distance between first and third. For example, 84.85 feet, or 84 feet 10 inches.
