I'm assuming you mean USA baseball. The distance between home plate and the pitcher's rubber (the center of the mound) is 60 feet 6 inches. The distance between each base around the diamond is 90 feet.

Yes, there used to not be any set distance at all No, the distance between bases has not changed since major league baseball began in 1876. The distance between home plate and the pitchers mound changed several times before it settled at 60'6" in 1893.

60ft, 6in... or 60.5 feet

In softball, the ball is bigger. Baseball pitchers pitch the ball overhand while softball pitchers pitch underhand. Baseball is more of a boys sport and softball is generally more for girls.

This is because the rules of baseball say the mound is a distance from homeplate that is less than halfway the distance between homeplate and 2nd base. The distance is the same between each base in order (the same from home to 1st, 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to home.) This results in the distance between homeplate and 2nd equal to the distance between 1st and 3rd. If you draw a line between homeplate and 2nd, and a line between 1st and 3rd, the lines will intersect in the center of the baseball diamond. However, the center point will be behind the pitcher's mound. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to prove the distance from the mound to home is less than the center point, but that is another question. (Hint: The distance squared from home to first plus the distance squared from first to second divided by 2).

In Major League Baseball, College baseball and High School baseball, the distance between the bases is 90 feet.

In baseball they can leave while the pitcher still has the Ball. but in softball they have to wait until the ball is released from the pitchers hand.

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.
