Base Running Speed Calculator

This converter and calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to show the speed of a batter (becoming a baserunner), going from home plate to first base. You will need to have a good stopwatch; here is the math that is involved. Enter the distance value from home plate to first base by selecting the proper league designation or by manual entry. Then enter the time value from the time the batter starts running to first base until he crosses or touches the base. (It will be several seconds! Have your stop watch ready...) Click the stopwatch when the batter/runner starts to first base and again when he crosses or touches first base to get that value. Click on Calculate Speed. The Calculate buttons and the Clear Values buttons may be used for another calculation. See our Baseball Pitching Speed Base Stealing Advantage Calculator for base stealing advantage information. Please see the representative time chart below.
