Pitching distance

Sorry about the extremely noob-ish question but what is the pitching distance for 15-16 year old senior league? i have read on other sites it is 60 feet, 6 inches but others say that is too far…

Yes, it’s likely 60-feet-6, which is major league distance. If not, it’s 45 feet, which is little league distance. But most kids in the US “graduate” to the big league mound at 13 years old.

Here in the NorthWest we have a u13 and a u14 Koufax League. It is the premiere league for these age groups around these parts.

The 13’s go from 54’ with 80’ bases, the 14’s go from 60/90. It’s a nice transition from little league distances. From 14 on its 60/90.

Old thread to bump…

In the Cal Ripken Senior League, 11 and 12 y/o pitching distance is 50’ and the bases are 70’ apart. It’s perfect for that age.

The Junior Ripken is 46/60, I believe. I think it’s that way because the mounds are constructed for 2 pitching plates and if the shorter distance was 45’, then the older kids would be striding right to the mounting hardware of the shorter distance.

Either way 45 or 46 feet is just about right for 10U age group. 11 and 12 y/o throwing from 45 feet is just too tough on the hitters if the pitcher is throwing gas.

Ditto here. Middle School is 54/80. HS is at 60/90.
