I am just speculating, but the equation would probably be something like. Mass x velocity x launch angle. Weather conditions as well as backspin on the baseball would effect the distance as well. Perhaps Robert Adair's book "The Physics of Baseball" could give a more in depth understanding. We should also assume that contact is made in front of the plate which would allow for greater extension and distance.
