Using the ratio of 60 MPH = 88 Ft per Sec Distance = Rate x Time or T = D/R R = 37 MPH (88/60) =or= 54.267 Ft Per Sec T = D/R = 40 Ft / 54.267 Ft per Sec = 0.737 Sec

Is a softball pitched at 68 mph the same as a baseball pitched at 98?

No...If the softball was pitched from a distance of 43 feet it is equivalent to a ball thrown just over 95 mph from a distance of 60' 6" which is the pitching distance in major league baseball. If the 68 mph pitch was thrown from 40 feet then it is equal to a 102 plus mph pitch at 60 feet 6 inches. Because speed is the relevance of time and distance then a ball thrown from 2 different distances and takes the same amount of time to travel each distance means the further of which will have to travel faster to cover more distance.

If a baseball is pitched 55 mph from a distance of 45 feet what would that speed simulate from a distance of 54 feet?

A ball thrown at 55mph will take ~.558 seconds to go 45 feet. A ball will take ~.558 seconds to travel 54 feet at a speed of 66mph. So, the 55mph pitch from 45 feet is simulating 66mph from 54 feet.

How fast did Bob Feller throw?

The best information I have came from a short film biography that stated in 1941 his fast ball speed was estimated by comparison with a speeding motorcycle going 86 mph. It was estimated he reached 104 mph. However, in 1946 radar guns were available. His fast ball was measured at 107.9 mph. Pretty fast. Claim is that his fast balls frequently measured over 100 mph during regular games. In a film biography of Bob Feller it is said in 1941 his fast ball was estimated at 104 mph. However, in 1946 when radar guns were available his fast ball was clocked at 107.9 mph. Pretty fast. He frequently exceeded 100 mph in regular games.
