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.
