How far is it from the pitcher's mound to the home plate in middle school baseball?

Good question. Generally speaking you have two different levels of baseball being play during Middle Schools. Most kids are playing Major Little League up until the age of 13. Which is generally up till the 6th grade. Once the kids are over 13 or the 7th grade they then play Junior Baseball. While a child is in the Majors the mound is 46 feet from home plate. Once they move up to the next level then the mound is 60 ft 6 in from home plate. Charles

Who played softball first?

The first softball game was played between Yale and Harvard alumni. On September 16, 1887, in Chicago, Illinois, George Hancock created the game.

The Yale and Harvard alumni had gathered at the Farragut Boat Club. They were there to hear the score of the annual football game. A Yale alumnus threw a boxing glove at a Harvard alumnus, who hit the glove with a stick. George Hancock had the boxing glove tied in a ball, and a broomstick handle was used as a bat. The final score of the game was 44-40, but the winner is unknown.

A week later, Hancock developed an undersized bat and a ball with a circumference of 16 inches to a baseball's 9 inches. The Farragut Boat Club came out with a set of rules for the game, which came to be known as 'Indoor-Outdoor'.

What is considered a good time for running from home plate to first base in college softball?

Running from Home Plate to First Baseelite major league runners can do from 3.5 to 4.0. an average time would be anywhere from 4.3 to 5.3. i was personally timed the other day at a 3.7 but my best however is a 3.6. the fastest time ever "recoreded" was mickie mantle at 3.1s

That may be the times for baseball.

Colleges want less than 3 seconds home to first, the closer t 2.5 seconds the better. Keeping in mind the distance is 60' for softball, not 90'.
