**Reiny**, Sunday, October 5, 2008 at 4:20pmDid you make a diagram?

Let the time taken be t seconds,

so the distance along third base line is 6t feet, and the distance along the first base line is 10t feet.

hoping that the lines at home plate are at 90º, don't you have a right-angled triangle and therefore isn't

t = .....

(pretty big softball field !)
