They do in little league, but the action of pitching a softball is less harmful to the body than an overhand pitch, asa and usssa haven't seen the need for it as yet, there is not enough data on injuries due to extended pitching underhand.

Travel is more competitive than rec. Rec season also consists of 1 game per every few days or once a week.

Why is the pitchers mound raised higher than the rest of the field?

It's to give the pitchers an advantage. Of course, these days, there isn't much of an advantage. Back in the 60s, it was raised (the mound was made higher) since the pitchers complained about the batter's advantage. Shortly thereafter, it was lowered to its present height due to the dominance of pitchers like Bob Gibson.
