From Mound to Plate


Harriett Gemmell from Orchard Park, NY asks:

How far is it from the pitchers mound to home plate in baseball and can it vary?

In Major League Baseball the pitcher's rubber is 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate. This length is non-negotiable but it can vary from age group to age group. In Little League baseball, for instance, the rubber is 46 feet away from home plate
