The strike zones in softball is the way that you hit the ball. Usually the strike zone is from knees to the chest.
Anything that hits the plate is considered a strike.
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.
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.

The strike zone is from the armpits to the knees tall. If any part of the ball crosses the plate it is considered a strike. Of course, umpire are supposed to try to stay within these parameters, but each umpire's strike zone varies.
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.
It depends on the Ump. (umpire) different umps have different zones. The average zone is from you shoulder to your knee. -Marina20
whereever the umpire deems it so on the night your team plays! lol
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
