Best Answer

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.

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.

In 18 U Gold softball and collegiate softball, the distance from the plate to the pitching mound is 43 feet. This is because the pitchers at these levels throw much faster than the pitchers in the lower levels. In high school at 14U - 18U the pitching distance is 40 feet. Notice there is a difference between 18U and 18U Gold level.
