We are doing a math problem where, we are supposed to find how far third base to first base is on a baseball diamond. We are using different feet from base to base to try to figure out the problem by using Pythagorean Theorem. Using the bases from T ball, Professional baseball, and Softball.

On a professional baseball diamond, there are 90 feet between the bases. How far is a throw from third to first base?
