Strike zones in softball?

That space over home plate between the batters front knee and back shoulder as they stand at the plate. It doesn't matter where the ball lands behind the plate. Check with your specific league as to what constitutes a strike. In many ASA slow pitch leagues, a strike must arch between 6' and 12' and land within three feet behind the plate. A ball that hits the plate is not considered a strike. The zone that is mentioned above is primarily for baseball and fast-pitch softball since those balls will have a more straight trajectory, whereas the slow-pitch softball will be coming down at an angle and this zone may not be accurate. Ultimately, the umpire will determine what is a strike and what is a ball, so you may need to adjust to how they are calling balls and strikes.
