When did major league baseball raise the pitching mound?

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.

In what year was the pitchers 'mound' introduced?

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.

What year did the pitchers mound move from 50 feet to 60 feet?

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.
