What is the distance between the pitcher's mound and second base?

Use the Pythagorean theorem: a²+b²=c², the triangle formed by home plate to 1st base, 1st base to 2nd, and home to second base. Thus, 90 feet between plate and home, or a², (90)(90)=8,100, add 90 feet between 1st base and 2nd base (b²) which is also 8,100 feet for a total of 16,200 feet which is c², the distance between home plate and 2nd base. All that is required is to take the square root of 16,200 to obtain 127.27922 feet, or 127 feet, 3.35 inches rounded.
