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!

How long does it take for the baseball to get to home plate at 100 miles per hour?

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".
