Yes. The umpire calls the pitch by determining if any part of the ball crossed any part of the plate within the strike zone. If the pitch does not cross home plate, the umpire calls a ball. 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.

What is the definition of appeal in the softball terminolo0gy?

In Softball, just like Baseball, the home-plate umpire is the highest umpire and makes most of the final decisions. A good example of an appeal would be: Pitcher pitches a ball out of the strike zone. The batter checks their swing and the home plate umpire calls a ball. The catcher thinks the batter may have went around with the bat, so the catcher then appeals the call by asking either the umpire on 1st or 3rd (depending on whether the batter is left- or right-handed) for their judgment, since they are able to see clearly whether the batter went around or not. Although the Home Plate Umpire made the call, the other umpire now has the ability to overrule his call if it, indeed, was a strike. If the call is not appealed, the other umpire is not allowed to overrule the call, even if it is wrong.

Can the umpire call a ball without a pitch being thrown?

No, the umpire can't call a strike or a ball until a pitch is thrown. There is no other play that uses those calls. An umpire can, however, walk the batter without a pitch being thrown if the pitcher attacks him. He can also advance a runner without a pitch being thrown if the pitcher balks. An umpire can, indeed, call a "ball" prior to a pitch. This is part of the rule designed to prevent the "spitball." This is very specifically spelled out in MLB Rule 8.02a. The pitcher may not touch his hand to his mouth while inside the mound, apply any substance to the ball, deface the ball, spit on the ball or his hand, or rub the ball against anything. The penalty is that a ball is called.

What does it mean to have a strikeout?

In the game of baseball, the pitcher throws the ball over a piece of rubber called home plate. A man with a long round piece of wood tries to hit the ball if it is over the piece of rubber. If he hits the ball, he gets to run to a base. If he swings and misses, a man behind home plate called an umpire calls "strike!" If the ball is between certain distances above home plate and the batter does not swing, the umpire calls, "strike." If he gets three strikes he is "out." He lost his chance to hit the ball and run. He struck out. That is a strikeout. The term carries over to other areas of life. A man calls a girl for a date. He calls her three times. Three times she turns him down. "Did you get a date with her?" "No, I struck out." At that point he gives up. A salesman tries to sell his product. The third time he strikes out, or he gives up. (Some do not give up). Three strikes, You are out, comes from the game of baseball. It is used in a whole lot more areas of life.
