i would say 70 on a 60ft mound looks like 50 on a little league mound, which i probably what you were seeing in all stars.

46/70 = 60/x

70X60=4200
46x

4200/46x= 91MPH

"what about for 65 mph on 46"= 85.48 mph perceived @60.5'

Example #1
60.5/46=1.304
1.304 x 65 = 84.48

Example #2
60.5/46=1.304
1.304x72=93.8
