whereever the umpire deems it so on the night your team plays! lol
In softball, the batter can be walked, strikeout, or they can get a hit. Walks are caused by the batter accumulating 4 balls. A ball is a pitch thrown outside of the strike zone. A strike is a pitch thrown inside the strike zone. A batter can get a strike by either swinging and missing the ball, or they can get a strike from not swinging at a strike within the strike zone.
Both, It depends on your league. I have played both ways. There are at least 2 mat size 16.5"x25" & 17"x36"
Strike Zone The strike zone is from the knee to shoulder of the batting softball player. The strike zone also extends as wide as a normal swing. A strike is called if the ball passes through the strike zone and reaches the catcher. The softball umpire will also call a strike if a batter swings and misses at a pitch outside the strike zone. Three strikes result in a batter being called out by the softball umpire. A ball is called for all pitches that miss the strike zone. Four balls allow a batter to walk to first base uncontested. Outfield These 3 zones are short, middle, and long. In the outfield.
The strike zones in softball is the way that you hit the ball. Usually the strike zone is from knees to the chest.
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.
For fast pitch softball, international play and NCAA is bottom of the shoulders to lower portion of the knees. And the width of the plate. NOTE: Due to size of the ball the strike zone in softball can seem wider than MLB, but it's similar. Also the rules of the batters box differ between softball and baseball.
only in the strike zone and it also depends on the umpires opinion if he thinks it's low than its low.
Some umpires will call a little differently, but the average is between the letters on your jersey to your knees
The strike zone in softball is from the armpits to the knees tall. A ball that crosses any part of the plate wide. The strike zone is supposed to stay constant, even between umpires, but some umpires will always have different strike zones than others.
The same place as fast pitch strike zone. above the knees, below the chest, and on the corners or in the middle of the plate.
