11U/12U pitch at 46 feet and the bases are at 60 feet. At Walker, it’s the closest base pegs (of three) and the closest pitching rubber. (Please note there is sometimes a third pitching rubber that is temporary for AA games in which case 46 feet would be the middle rubber).

Weight drops vary in Senior League baseball, but players 10 years old and under often use -10 weight drop bat. Players 12 years old and under often use a -8 weight drop, and 13 year old players often use a -5 weight drop.

Between these extremes, USSSA Baseball Bats are also available in drop 10 and drop 8 bat drops. According to USSSA guidelines, all 13U players must swing a bat no lighter than a drop 8 bat drop, and all 14U players must swing a bat no lighter than a drop 5 bat drop.

What was the answer? Move the pitchers back another five feet – to 60 feet, 6 inches. That’s what happened in 1893. The pitcher’s box was replaced with a 12-inch-by-4-inch slab, and, as with the back line of the box, the pitcher was required to place his back foot upon it.
