150 feet I'm sorry but the answer above is incorrect. the full distance between 3rd and 1st is only 127.28 feet. The distance from 1st to the pitchers mound is 63.72 feet. the same goes for 3rd to pitchers mound.

from a 60ft mound they are 90ft and from a 54foot mound they are 80 ft. In the Major league and High School...90ft. Pitcher's mound would be 60ft 6". Little league they are 60ft.

The distance between the pitcher's mound and home plate for ages 12-13, should be around 50 feet.

The distance between first and third base is 127.28 feet. Some people think that you can just divide that by 2 to get the distance between the mound and first or third base, but the pitcher's mound does not touch the straight line between first and third. It is actually lower, so the actual distance between first (or third) and the middle of the pitchers mound is 63.72 feet. This is according to the diagram on page 4 of the Official Baseball Rules (2011 edition)

60 Feet, 6 inches(Same distance as Pitchers Mound to Home Plate.)

In Little League, the distance between the mound and home plate is 46 feet.

It is 60 feet from home to first on a softball field. It is the same distance between all the bases. The pitcher's mound is 40 to 43 feet way depending on the level of competition. The depth of the outfield varies from field to field.

in high school, the distance was changed this year from 40 to 43 feet. this gives the hitters an advantage

This is because the rules of baseball say the mound is a distance from homeplate that is less than halfway the distance between homeplate and 2nd base. The distance is the same between each base in order (the same from home to 1st, 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to home.) This results in the distance between homeplate and 2nd equal to the distance between 1st and 3rd. If you draw a line between homeplate and 2nd, and a line between 1st and 3rd, the lines will intersect in the center of the baseball diamond. However, the center point will be behind the pitcher's mound. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to prove the distance from the mound to home is less than the center point, but that is another question. (Hint: The distance squared from home to first plus the distance squared from first to second divided by 2).

Answer According to one source, in Little League the pitchers mound to home is 46 feet, not 60 feet. Yes, the distance from home plate to the pitchers mound is 46 feet, for little league. For the majors, it is 60 feet 6 inches.
