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.

It changes depending on the umpire, but it usually is between the letters of the jersey (or her chest) and her knees, and from the outside of the plate to the inside of the plate.
