The strike zones in softball is the way that you hit the ball. Usually the strike zone is from knees to the chest.
A runner doesn't get a strike, a batter does.
In softball as well as base ball, "SO" means strike out. It is one of the symbols, like "H" for hit or "BB" for base on balls (walk).
A strike in softball is when a pitcher pitches a softball to the batter [located in the batter box in front of the catcher] and the batter misses. When it is a strike, it is thrown in a particular area from the batter's armpits to the bottom of their knees.
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.
It's when you strike out tag out or throw out
Anything that hits the plate is considered a strike.
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.

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 first two foul balls count as strikes 1 and 2. After that, it is not a strike.
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.
