I don't know exactly but I've watched the Little League World Series enough and they always refer to Little Leaguers pitching speed in relation to MLB and I believe that 70 mph Little League would be around 100 mph MLB A 70 mph little league pitch is equivalent to about a 111 mph MLB pitch. (This is calculated based on an average little league pitch at 57.5 mph and an average MLB pitch at 91 mph.)

approx. 78 to 80 mph, such as the change up.

Cal Ripken Ball has taken youngsters to the correct level. Baseball is being taught the way it is played. Pitchers are into the stretch mode, lead offs, stealing base's. All the above is what little league does not have. Little league is good, but not like it was. To many boardmembers are out there for themselves or because there child hardly plays. There's not to much parent participation in little league. The Ripken league offers classes with 100% showup. Not little league. Politics have really done little league in for the worst yet to come. Kids are not coming back that next year cause they had no FUN. Little league needs to step it up with the times. Try interleague with other city's other leagues, something. I played little league and loved it. That was when there was 10teams per division. Now, your lucky if each division gets 4 to 5 teams. I just wanted to shout this out to some of you people out there who still listen. Cal Ripken offers more, if your child is good to where you the parent know that your child is that good, then move him or her out of there. Place them in a league that offers competitive type ball.

The same as a major league baseball, 9.25 ounces. IMPROVED ANSWER: Same as MLB with the exception of T-Ball Balls. The T Ball balls are lighter and don't have as much "bounce".

Almost all coaches at the youth age are volunteers. Coaches that make money are high school's, junior's, and a few top Canadian and American AAA hockey programs.

If the measure of ease of hitting a fastball were how long the batter sees it, then the calculation would be straightforward. Dividing the major league distance to the mound, 60.5 ft, by the little league distance, 46 ft, gives approximately 1.3152. Multiplying 40 mph by 1.3152 gives 52.6 mph, which a major league batter should easily hit. Multiplying 50 mph by 1.3152 gives 65.76 mph, which a major league batter should also easily hit if it is a fastball. A 90 mph fastball, which is somewhat challenging to a major league batter, would be equivalent to 90 mph divided by 1.3152 = a 68.43 mph fastball in little league, which is not expected. Since one mile is 5280 ft and one hour is 3600 seconds, a speed in miles per hour can be converted to feet per second by multiplying by 5280 ft / 3600 sec = 1.467 ft/sec = 1 mph. So the 40 mph little league pitch and the 52.6 mph major league pitch each give the batter a 46 ft / 58.67 ft/sec = 0.784 sec look. The 50 mph little league pitch (if there is one) and the 65.76 mph major league pitch each give the batter a 46 ft / 73.35 ft/sec = 0.627 sec look. The 90 mph major league fastball gives the batter a 60.5 ft / 118.36 ft/sec = 0.511 sec look. However, even this interval is much longer than the typical 0.1 sec human reaction time. Perhaps a batter needs about half a second to swing. It is possible though difficult to hit a curve ball or sinker. The measure of difficulty for that might be the distance the ball travels in the last 0.5 sec, and that doesn’t depend on the distance to the mound if the speed is measured near the plate. It just depends on the speed, which is easier to achieve if the mound is near the plate, and on the curve radius. So converting pitch speed by length of look probably over-corrects, especially if the fastball has some spin. Perhaps the mean of actual and converted speeds would be a better estimate of major league equivalents for little league pitches.
