If the pitch crosses any part of home plate, the umpire determines the height of the ball as it crossed the plate. If the beight is within the strike zone, it is called a strike. If it is outside the strike zone, it is called a ball.

A pitched ball is ruled either a ball or strike based on whether or not it has passed over home plate. Extend the surface of home plate upwards, and that is the zone through which the ball must pass. If a pitched ball does not pass over home plate, but is still caught directly behind home plate (curve ball) it is a ball.
