43ft as of this year
Prior to 1903, a pitching mound in MLB could be any height desired by the home team -- even zero if they didn't want any mound at all. From that year until 1968, a REGULATION mound had to be 15 inches higher than home plate. In that year, that height has been reduced to 10 inches. It has been a long-standing cheat for a home team with good pitchers to add height to the mound. Doing so has almost never been caught, simply because mound height (too high or too low) benefits (or hinders) both teams equally -- thus, nobody bothers to challenge it.

Following the 1968 season the pitching mound was lowered from 15 inches to 10. Pitchers had reached unprecedented success in 1968, highlighted by Bob Gibson's 1.12 ERA. Lowering the mound helped the hitters.

In Little League, the distance between the mound and home plate is 46 feet.
50 feet Actually it depends: Mustang: 9-10 year old league; 44 feet Bronco: 11-12 year old league; 48 feet Pony: 13-14 year old league; 54 feet Colt and Palomino: I believe are 60 feet Note: Some places have two different pony teams (13u and 14u). The pitching mound distance is the same for both.
The pitcher's mound was introduced in 1893. Prior to 1893, there was a 4 foot wide by 5 1/2 foot long box on flat ground that the pitchers pitched from. The pitcher could put his back foot anywhere along the 4 footback line of the box, which was 55 1/2 feet from home plate, to start his delivery. In 1893, to create more offense, the box was replaced with a raised mound and a rubber slab from where the pitcher could start his delivery. The rubber slab was 12 inches in length and positioned 60 1/2 feet from home plate. With the pitched ball having to travel an extra five feet and the pitcher not being able to use a wide angle to deliver the pitch, the league batting average rose 35 points in 1893 and another 29 points in 1894.
The average height for a 12 year old will depend on several things such as genetics. Many 12 year old are between 4'5" in height up to 5'5" in height.
The distance between the pitcher and home plate changed from 50 feet to 55 1/2 feet in 1887. At this time there was no mound but a box that was 6 feet long and 4 feet wide and the pitcher was required to keep his back foot anywhere on the back of the 4 foot wide box when he delivered. In 1893, the box was abolished and a mound was instituted where a 24 inch rubber plate that the pitcher was required to be touching with his back foot was located. This rubber plate was 60 1/2 feet away from home plate. In 1887, the distance between the pitcher and home plate was moved from 50 feet to 55 1/2 feet but there was no mound. In 1893, the mound was introduced and the distance between the pitcher and home plate changed from 55 1/2 feet to 60 1/2 feet.
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.
No, you have stopped growing. The height is in your genes and vitamins can not change that.
14 by multiple pitchers, including Rollie Fingers.
The weight depends upon the height. Not all 8 year olds are the same height.
