The pitchers mound was created in the late 1800's. It was put in to create a downward angle for the pitches, and to help the pitcher generate speed when sloping downhill. The height was originally 10 inches, but was raised to 15 in 1903. Over the years, hitting went down, and the mound was lowered back to ten inches.
Prior to 1903, a pitching mound in MLB could be any height desired by the home team -- even zero if they didn't want any mound at all. From that year until 1968, a REGULATION mound had to be 15 inches higher than home plate. In that year, that height has been reduced to 10 inches. It has been a long-standing cheat for a home team with good pitchers to add height to the mound. Doing so has almost never been caught, simply because mound height (too high or too low) benefits (or hinders) both teams equally -- thus, nobody bothers to challenge it.
Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak came to an end on July 17, 1941, against the Cleveland Indians. Pitchers on the mound for Cleveland that day were starting pitcher Al Smith and Jim Bagbyin relief.
