The year the pitching mound was introduced and the pitching distance was moved to 60 feet, 6 inches was 1893.
Different distances were experimented with in order to find the optimal distance. The current distance has been proven to be perfect for giving pitchers and hitters no unfair advantage over eachother.
No. It is the exact same distance but it was shorter when they moved the mound back The distance from home to the pitching rubber is 60 feet 6 inches. The distance from the pitching rubber to 2nd base is 66 feet 9 3/8 inches. The total distance from home to second is 127 feet 3 3/8 inches.
Ummm... 60 feet 6 inches.
You start at the pointy end of home plate and measure 60 feet 6 inches towards second base. That is where you would place the front of the pitcher's rubber. Then from the middle of the pitcher's rubber you measure 18 inches towards home plate and mark that spot. Measure an 18 foot radius around the marked spot. That is the pitcher's mound boundary. To make sure you're correct, you would then measure from the front of the mound to the front of the pitcher's rubber. It should equal 11 feet 6 inches.
It's 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate. The original baseball field designers wanted it to be 60 feet but when the "landscapers" were reading the diagram drawn up it read 60 ' 0" and they read the 0 to be a 6 by mistake.
