Also 14 year old pitcher regularly throw over 55 mph which on a Little League Field is VERY fast
He is right. At age 14, from a little league distance it would be very dangerous. (They actually have two different distances, high school is the same distance but Seniors isn't.)
The hitters are also better in the bigs.
Like for me, at 13 years old I throw 72, from a little league distance that could injure a kid.
At 13 I was 4-10 80lbs., but some friends were 6-4 255, poney league bases were 75' This was a lot of fun!

The distance varies based on the league. Baseball (NCAA and MLB) is 90 feet. Softball is between 60 and 90 feet, depending on underhand or overhand, or mens and womens.
The bases are 60 feet apart and it's 220 feet on average from homeplate to the outfield fence. The mound is about 40-43 feet from homeplate depending on the league.
The normal distance is 46 ft.
In the minor leagues pitchers do not come to bat. They all use the designated hitter rules. In Major League Baseball pitchers come to bat in the National League, they do not bat in the American League where the designated hitter rule is employed. During inter-league play, the All-Star Game and the World Series, pitchers from both leagues come to bat if the game is being played in a National League park.
