100.623 feet if playing in the baseline exactly between 2nd and 3rd
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
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).
the spot between 3rd base and 2nd base
The distance between 1st base and 3rd base on a MLB field is 127'.
