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.

A squared plus B squared equals C squared. You are looking at an equilateral right triangle. The angle between the line from home plate to first base and from first base to second base is 90 degrees. The distance from home plate to first base and from first base to second base is the same. Using this formula, you can find the distance from home plate to second base no matter what the distance between bases is.
