It's 60 feet 6 inches away from home plate. The original Baseball field designers wanted it to be 60 feet but when the "landscapers" were reading the diagram drawn up it read 60 ' 0" and they read the 0 to be a 6 by mistake.

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.

Same as in Major League baseball, 60 feet, 6 inches. Also, the same in high school and college.

The distance from home plate to the pitcher's mound in Little League is 46 feet. High school, college, and Major League Baseball standard is 60 feet and 6 inches (a mistake in measuring long ago but was left that way). Pitcher's mound distances are ALWAYS measured from the front of the rubber to the rear tip of home plate.

Heighth difference from top of homeplate to the top of the pitchers rubber.
