Pitchers in the Little League World Series throw fastballs 60-70+ mph. Only a few pitchers touched 70+ mph in 2015 and 2016. One man-child hit 81 mph on the radar. This velocity is almost unhittable from 46 feet and extremely rare for a 13 year old.

According to the official Little League field specifications, for ages 12 and under, the typical base path distance is 60 feet while older groups can have a length of up to 90 feet. Use this distance as a reference for other measurements you will need to make.

1 Example: In the 7U – 14U age divisions, a player may legally pitch a maximum of three (3) innings in one (1) day and still legally pitch the next day. If the player pitches three and one-third (3 1/3) or more innings in one (1) day, the player cannot legally pitch the next day.

Generally, if a beginner/intermediate pitcher is throwing three days a week, that’s great. Four can be even better, provided that she’s gotten adequate rest and all four practices are quality practices.

After reaching the peak distance, throwers should come back in 10-foot increments with each throw while maintaining the same intensity. Once the arm is in shape, throwing three to five days a week is encouraged.

A starting pitcher in professional baseball usually rests three, four, or five days after pitching a game before pitching in another. Therefore, most professional baseball teams have four, five or six starting pitchers on their rosters. These pitchers, and the sequence in which they pitch, is known as the rotation.

Division III players have a pitching velocity of 77 miles per hour to 82 miles per hour on average.
