Foul territories are the same in any league of baseball and softball. The foul line runs along the first and third base lines and continue all the way to the fence or wall in the outfield. Any ball that lands outside of that line is considered a foul ball.
The first two foul balls count as strikes 1 and 2. After that, it is not a strike.
The foul line runs from home plate to the outfield fence so the length depends on the length of the field which will very from field to field. Most softball fields will have a length of 190 to 210 feet along the foul line.
Any ball that lands in the area within the foul line
The catcher is usually in foul territory when the pitch is thrown; although, legally, any player but the pitcher COULD be there.

"NEVER! You must be a soccer fan." <- not necessarily Well, it depends what you are playing. Some recreational softball leagues will allow you to foul out. The last league I played in would give you a courtesy foul for your first foul with two strikes. Your next foul counts as the third strike.

A foul ball is a ball that is hit outside of the foul lines on the field. A ball that bounces in fair territory then goes into foul territory before it passes a base is considered a foul ball. A ball that bounces in fair territory and then bounces into foul territory after it passes a base if considered a fair ball.
There is no fouls in Softball unless you are thinking about a foul ball [ball hit out of bounds] If so, the batter hits a ball out of bounds then that counts as a strike.
No if it is a foul ball or if it hits the fence and you catch it it does not matter you still can play it if it is not foul but if it is foul and you catch it when it hits the fence they just call it a strike. Actually - you CAN catch a ball off the fence. There is no rule against it, however it will NOT be counted as an out. The fence is part of the field just like the ground. Therefore, if it hits the fence in foul or fair territory, it is played the same as if it had hit the ground before you caught it.
Errors are only charged when a ball is in fair play.
At a High school softball game and the batter hit 21 foul balls in 26 pitches. She then walked.
you can steal on a over throw but you cant steal on a foul ball. A foul ball is a dead ball and the ball is not live again until the next pitch.
