What is Little league softball pitcher's look back rule?
A runner is entitled to leave the base even if the pitcher is in the circle, if the pitcher is attempting to make a play on a runner, or faking one. That usually means more than just a look-back.
A coach that seeks an out here will be risking his/her patience by a good umpire.

89 feet from the back tip of home plate
For fastpitch softball how do you measure from the pitchers mound to homeplate. Is it from the back of the pitchers mound to the back of homeplate or front of mound to back of plate?
Measure from the front edge of the pitching rubber to the back tip of home plate.
The distance from the pitchers mound to home plate (the back of home plate to the front of the pitchers plate) is 43 feet. It was recently moved back from 40 feet to help both the pitcher and the batter with the transition to college ball (which is also 43 feet).
In Pony League, the distance from the rubber to the back of home plate is 54 feet. In Little League it is 46 feet and in high school (as well as college & pro) it is 60' 6".
they had to move it back 3ft. its about 42ft
Yes. You cannot slide head first while advancing but you can dive head first BACK to a base.
It will nullify the look back rule but other than that nothing happens.
Can a pitcher in little league fast pitch softball go back to the mound after she was pulled off the mound?
yes, so long she has not yet started her pitch or presented the ball.
43 feet from the front edge of the pithing rubber to the back point of home plate.
The pitching distance is 40 feet from home plate to the back of the pitching rubber. For 18U Gold and collegiate softball the pitchers mound is 43 feet away. This is because pitchers throwing at these levels throw much faster than those at the lower levels, making it a lot harder for batters to identify pitches.
College softball distance is 43 feet. Recently the national high school governing organization voted to move high school pitchers back from 40 to 43 feet beginning in the 2010-2011 season. High schools are free to move to 43 feet in the 2009-2010 season if they choose.
Rosin bags are still on the back slope of every major league pitchers mound.
It is 60' 6" from the back of the plate to the front of the rubber.

Not many boys play softball but it is not illegal. im 11 and i almost pitch bbetter softball than baseball. ( i play baseball). so if i could find a league that guys play softball, i would go there definitly. the reason most girls play softball because back ago, girls were not allowed to play baseball so they created softball. it was just a sexus thing to do.
softball will be back in the olympics in 2016?
from about a half a foot from the front of the plate to about a half a foot from the back of the plate. if you are facing a fast pitcher, you want to be in the back of the nox so you have more time when then ball comes out of the pitchers hand. if you have a slow pitcher you want to be in the front of the box incase the ball dips… Read More
Cal Ripken Ball has taken youngsters to the correct level. Baseball is being taught the way it is played. Pitchers are into the stretch mode, lead offs, stealing base's. All the above is what little league does not have. Little league is good, but not like it was. To many boardmembers are out there for themselves or because there child hardly plays. There's not to much parent participation in little league. The Ripken league offers… Read More

Is the distance between the back of the plate or the front of the plate in softball for little girls?
The distance is always measured from the point or tip of the plate.
Both Major League Baseball and their Minor League Teams (A, AA, AAA) play on fields of the same dimensions. So it is 60' 6" from the front of the pitcher's plate to the back tip of home plate.

No, it's legal to go back head first.
The pitching distance in softball varies in different age divisions, associations, leagues, and style of softball. The rules book for the association under which the game is being played should be the ultimate place anyone should look to be sure the field layout is correct. Generally, these are the distances for each age division Fastpitch U10- 35 feet (LL Minors) U12/U14/U16- 40 feet (LL Majors) U18- 40 feet or 43 feet if a college player… Read More
You get your first Pokemon, then warp back there after beating the Pokemon league.
i would say a eleven inch due to the fact that it is lighter. but i am no mathmatician, just a lover of softball. HELP PUT SOFTBALL BACK IN THE OLYPMICS!!!!
In Major League Baseball, where the bases are 90' apart, it is 60' 6" from the back point of home plate to the front of the pitcher's plate. I don't know about softball or junior leagues.
Trick question because softball wasn't invented until 1933
MLB players do that sometimes. I don't see why the rules would be different in little-league. A player can hit the ball with the bat in any way he pleases.
Lacrosse back in the 1800's
It's to give the pitchers an advantage. Of course, these days, there isn't much of an advantage. Back in the 60s, it was raised (the mound was made higher) since the pitchers complained about the batter's advantage. Shortly thereafter, it was lowered to its present height due to the dominance of pitchers like Bob Gibson.
From the back of the plate to the front of the base.
Although the distance may vary between leagues and associations, the pitching distance in 10 and under modified or fastpitch softball is usually accepted to be 35 feet. This distance has changed in some national associations over the past few years, and you may find anything from 34-36 feet. This is measured from the back point of the WHITE part of homeplate (not the black part) to the front-middle of the pitching rubber.
I played softball from when i was little through 8th grade now i am going to be a junior in hs do you think after missing two years i could come back and try out next year as a junior?
Yes you can come back, two years is not a long time for a break but you have to prepare for the try-out and be focused because stopping may cause you to lose your confidence. Just make sure to trust your skills and you'll be ok Enjoy. You wouldn't come back if you didn't like softball
savesoftball.com its great
Great Question! You'd have to go all the way back to 1945, the last time the Cubs got into the World Series. Ray Prim led the National League with a 2.40 ERA. His teammate, Claude Passeau was runner-up with a 2.46 ERA. However, this wasn't good enough to lead the ERA in the majors that year. There were 4 pitchers from the American League that has better ERA's that that. For the leader of the… Read More

The distance from the pitcher's rubber to HB is 59 feet, or 60 feet and 6 inches to the back tip of home plate. The mound has an 18 foot diameter and is 10.5 inches tall at the pitcher's rubber, which is located 10 feet from the front of the mound and 8 feet from the back of the mound.
saddly the year of 2008 they had the final fastpitch Olympics games for now there is a act going on to bring softball back into the Olympics.
In softball "squish the bug" when you are batting means to pick up your back heel but taking your toes and pivoting them 90 degrees.
If a runner does not go all the way back to the base when the pitcher is on the rubber is he able to steal before the pitcher pitches in little league ages 10-12?
I think the stealing rule in Little League is NO leading, runner cannot start running until the ball crosses the strike zone or is hit by the batter. There are no lead-offs in Little League. (except Senior & Big League) Correct answer If a runner is heading back to the base when the pitcher is on the mound, he MUST go back to the base, otherwise he can be called out. Now if you get… Read More
Yes, it's played in the Olympics and in fact it's the only sport that doesn't have a boys division, it's only women softball. Unfortunately, a move was done to remove softball from the Olympic games starting in the 2012 Olympics. There have been efforts to help bring back softball.
There is no difference. Some rules may have changed but I am pretty sure that it is still the same. I have been playing softball for a while and it is still the same from when i played in 2012 and I still play.
The front part closest to the mound.
