Softball Pitcher’s Circle

Dimensioned elevation drawings of a Softball Pitcher’s Circle measured with diameter and various properties

The Softball Pitcher’s Circle is the location of the Softball Field where the Softball Pitcher stands to pitch the ball to the batter. The Softball Pitcher’s Mound is placed at the middle of the infield and although its name suggests it is a mound, it is physically a flat circle. It is sometimes referred to as the pitching circle. The Softball Pitcher’s Mound is drawn from chalk on the ground and has 2 straight lines that come out from the pitching rubber to create the pitching lane. A Softball Pitcher’s Mound is used throughout the game to determine when a play has ended.

Softball Pitcher’s Circles have a diameter of 16’ (4.88 m) for an overall area of 201 ft² (18.67 m²). The rubber of the Softball Pitcher’s Circle is the same size as the baseball rubber with a size of 24” x 6” (60.96 x 15.24 cm). The distance to home plate in softball is 43’ (13.1 m).
