speed of baseballIn MLB, the distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate is 60 1/2 feet. A baseball traveling at 100 mph is covering 146.7 feet every second. That means it takes under 1/2 of a second (0.412 seconds to be exact) for a 100 mph fastball to travel from the pitcher to the batter!

Based on the official MLB pitching distance of 60' 6" .. it takes .5 seconds for a 100 mph fastball to reach home plate. However, in reality, if the baseball is thrown by a person, it actually reaches the plates quicker because most MLB pitchers are 6'+ and there stride towards home plate will have them releasing the baseball closer than 60' 6".

Check out the link attached about Jim Hardy he holds the nfl-record of 8 interceptions thrown in a single game. A long long time ago.

The average baseball is only used for 5-7 pitches in the major leagues. This of course is due to home runs, foul balls, and pitches thrown in the dirt and becoming too scuffed to allow to be pitched

Are you thinking of Manny Ramierez? He was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Dodgers this past season. I think he's a right fielder.
