It is 60 feet from home to first on a softball field. It is the same distance between all the bases. The pitcher's mound is 40 to 43 feet way depending on the level of competition. The depth of the outfield varies from field to field.

Every ball park has a different distance for the fence. Rule 1.04 Major League Baseball. The distance from home base to the nearest fence, stand or other obstruction on fair territory shall be 250 feet or more. A distance of 320 feet or more along the foul lines and 400 feet or more to center field is preferable. Note (a) Any playing field constructed by a professional club after June 1,1958 shall provide a minimum distance of 325 feet from home base to the nearest fence,stand or other obstruction on the right and left field foul lines, and a minimum of 400 feet to the center field fence. Note (b) No existing playing field shall be remodeled after June 1,1958 in such manner as to reduce the distance from the home base to the foul polesand to the center field fence below the minimum specified in paragraph (a) above.

This can be confusing depending on the association or level of play (60, 65, 70ft), Female or Male, college and/or adult, slow pitch or fast pitch. For fast pitch: (college & adult) Female 43ft. Male 46ft., under 18 & 15 Female 40 or 35, Male 46, Slow pitch: Female, Male, Coed, 50ft. under 18 & 15 Female 50ft., Male 46ft. Your best bet is to check with the association you will play in.

It all depends on the age of the girls playing. Usually, girls 10 and under pitch from 35 feet. Girls under 16 typically throw from 40 feet. What used to be just college and high-level travel ball is now coming to 16 year olds - 43 foot pitching distance.

How do you measure the pitching distance for high school softball?

The pitching distance is 40 feet from home plate to the back of the pitching rubber. For 18U Gold and collegiate softball the pitchers mound is 43 feet away. This is because pitchers throwing at these levels throw much faster than those at the lower levels, making it a lot harder for batters to identify pitches.
