Answer According to one source, in Little League the pitchers mound to home is 46 feet, not 60 feet. Yes, the distance from home plate to the pitchers mound is 46 feet, for little league. For the majors, it is 60 feet 6 inches.
It's 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate. The originalbaseball field designers wanted it to be 60 feet but when the"landscapers" were reading the diagram drawn up it read 60 ' 0" andthey read the 0 to be a 6 by mistake.
The Major League Baseball season has been 162 games long for each team since 1961 in the American League and 1962 in the National League. The preceding 154-game schedule was adopted in 1904 and modified only in 1919. The Major League Baseball championship season cannot be scheduled over fewer than 1…78 days, nor more than 183 days, with exceptions made for "International Openers"). In recent seasons, the schedule runs from the beginning of April to the end of September, followed by the post-season tournament in October. The endpoints of the season have gradually changed through the years. In the late 1800s, the regular season began in late April and ran through late October. By the early 1900s, however, the season was running from late April to late September or early October, with the World Series capping the season in October, sometimes actually starting in the last days of September.

The first team to openly pay its players was the Cincinnati RedStockings, doing so in 1869. However, they were not part of anyleague -- they simply played anyone who agreed to play them. . The first national organization that attempted to set rules,schedules, and declare yearly champions was the Na…tionalAssociation of Baseball Players, which started in 1871. To thisday, neither Major League Baseball nor the Hall of Fame considerthis organization to be a "major" league; although many historiansdo so. . The National League -- an organization that continues to thisday -- was founded in 1876. (MORE)
The distance between the pitcher's mound to the baseball diamond is roughly 60.5 ft. The distance from homeplate to first base is around 90ft. So basically, the homeplate portion of the baseball diamond is 90 degrees. So if you break that in half that's roughly 45 degrees. Then using law of cosine a…nd using the variable C in place of the distance between the pitcher's mound to first base, you get c^2=(60.5)^2+90^2-2(60.5)(90)(Cos 45) which turns out to be c^2=4059.86. Square that and C= roughly 63.717 and that is the distance between the pitcher's mound to first base. The distance between the pitcher's mound and home plate is exactly, not roughly, 60.5 feet. Another respondent asked why it is not a simple 45-45-90 triangle, and the answer to that is because the pitcher's mound is NOT located in the exact center of the diamond. The pitcher's mound is closer to home plate than it is to second base. (MORE)

The longest MLB game was 26 innings between Brooklyn and Boston in 1920. (MORE)

If it hits the gro…und, then the person with the ball is to try to tag the hitter with the ball before he scores a run. Back then, there were no "outs", "strikes", "balls" or "foul balls". (MORE)

Essentially, there are a large number of games in a major leaguebaseball season for three reasons: . the sport does not cause much wear for bodies since the playingarenas are relatively soft and even when grassed the rootingdensity is likely to be low. There is also relatively littlephysical wear …caused by contact with the ground since evenoutfielders seldom have to leap to take a ball. Pitchers, whoconsistently hit the plate hard when pitching, experience most wearand therefore play less than other fieldsmen . there needs to be a large number of matches to determine whichteams are best since one match of nine innings can be stronglyinfluenced by luck due to a slight miss which can turn a strikeinto a ball or cause a runner to reach base. As an illustrativecomparison, one game of Australian Rules football revealsas much skill as fourteen baseball games, so that if MLBplayed only 20 games as most Australian football leagues do, itwould be very easy for a bad team to come out on top . because baseball, with its small ball and long hits, does notplay as well on television as gridiron football or basketball, agreater number of matches are needed to gain the required revenuefrom attendances.

Prior to 1903, a pitching mound in MLB could be any height desiredby the home team -- even zero if they didn't want any mound at all.From that year until 1968, a REGULATION mound had to be 15 incheshigher than home plate. In that year, that height has been reducedto 10 inches. It has been a long-sta…nding cheat for a home teamwith good pitchers to add height to the mound. Doing so has almostnever been caught, simply because mound height (too high or toolow) benefits (or hinders) both teams equally -- thus, nobodybothers to challenge it. (MORE)
