The pitching rubber is 60 feet 6 inches from home plate. The number was intended to be 60 feet even, but messy handwriting on the baseball field blueprint was read as "6" instead of "0".

I might be wrong, but I think the tallest part(at the rubber) is about 15 inches

I believe it's the same distance as the rubber is to home plate, 60 feet, 6 inches.Ken Fougère
