Best Answer

Pitchers run after pitching because of the lactic acid buildup in the arm. If the pitcher does not run, the lactic acid sits in their arm and that could be bad. So the pitcher runs to move the lactic acid around the body and distribute it evenly.

How many pitchers on a major league baseball team?

On average, there are about 11 to 13 pitchers on every Major League team. There are, on average, 5 starting pitchers, a closer (last-resort pitcher), a set-up pitcher (a pitcher who throws while the closer is still warming up, also the backup closer), 2 long relief pitchers (1st inning through 4th inning backup), and 3 middle relief pitchers (5th inning through early 8th inning backup). The starting pitchers are the pitchers that start pitching in the 1st inning. The pitching rotation is the order of determining what starter will start. The rest of the pitchers make up the bullpen.

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.
