90 feet, same as the distance between any two other bases.

In Major League Baseball, the distance is 90 feet.

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

90 feet

This is because the rules of baseball say the mound is a distance from homeplate that is less than halfway the distance between homeplate and 2nd base. The distance is the same between each base in order (the same from home to 1st, 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to home.) This results in the distance between homeplate and 2nd equal to the distance between 1st and 3rd. If you draw a line between homeplate and 2nd, and a line between 1st and 3rd, the lines will intersect in the center of the baseball diamond. However, the center point will be behind the pitcher's mound. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to prove the distance from the mound to home is less than the center point, but that is another question. (Hint: The distance squared from home to first plus the distance squared from first to second divided by 2).

1st baseman (to the left and up and little), 2nd baseman (between 1st base and 2nd base), or right outfielder (to the left and back).

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.

60' 60" from homebase to the pitcher's mound. 127' 3-3/8" from homebase to 2nd 90' from base to base (Home to 1st, 1st to 2nd, ect...)

The distance is calculated from the back of home plate to the back of 2nd base. The distance is 127 feet 3 3/8 inches.

127.28 ft ... 90' between bases, 127.28'= hypotenuse of the triangle made by home, 1st & 2nd

the distance from 2nd base to home plate is 180 feet both ways

60 ft

Catcher (behind home plate) Pitcher (the guy who throws the baseball to the catcher 1st Base (stands on 1st base) 2nd base (between 2nd & 1st base) Shortstop (between 3rd & 2nd base) 3rd Base (stands on 3rd base) Left fielder (the person who is in the outfield at the left) Center Fielder (the person in the outfield between the Left and the Right fielder) Right Fielder (the person in the outfield at the right)

127.27922061357855439215198517887 ft... 1, 2 &3 base make a triangle... if it's 90 ft between 1st, and 2nd; and 90 ft between 2nd, & 3rd. [A2 (a*a)] + [B2 (b*b)] = C2.... Pythagorean theorem 127 feet or 338 inches.

the distance between all the bases in major league baseball is 90 feet. home --> first first--> second second--> third third--> home all are 90 feet apart

Same as it is between all bases, 90 feet.

Baseball infields are supposed to be square. Therefore, an infield would be 90x90 for Major League Baseball, maybe 40x40 for third graders, and maybe 60x60 for eighth graders. The numbers refer to the distance between bases. In any case, the formula for calculating the distance from home plate to 2nd base is A Squared + B Squared = C Squared, where A is the distance from home plate to 1st base, B is the distance from 1st base to 2nd base, and C is the distance from home plate to 2nd base. This sounds like your league has an infield of 50x50. Using the formula above, the distance from home plate to 2nd base would be 70.71 feet, which comes out to 70 feet and 8.5 inches. Your league probably just defines it as 70 feet for simplicity in measuring, thus resulting in the term 50x70.

2nd base...

100.623 feet if playing in the baseline exactly between 2nd and 3rd

90 feet.

1st base.

If there is a person on base, but there is no force (base runners on base from 3rd, 2nd to 1st, or just 1st)

3; they are 1st base, 2nd base and 3rd base.
