In college softball, the distance from the pitcher's mound to the batter is 43 feet. If the ball leaves the bat at 90 , how much time elapses between the hit and the ball reaching the pitcher?

90 what? Feet per second? Miles per hour? Probably the former.

Remember D = V*t

t = D/V

D is distance ; V is velocity

Sorry about that, it's MPH!
