Nike Softball Tip: 3 Pointers For Developing a Strike Zone

Softball Strike Zone

Top of Zone: Right below the chest

Middle Zone: Waistline/beltline

Bottom of Zone: Knee Caps

Tips to know:

- Watch where strikes have been called. More than likely that is the umpires strike zone

- Do not assume every umpire is the same. Some have tighter zones, while others have more open zones

- On a ball 4, do not call the pitch. Do not just automatically assume it is a ball 4 before the umpire says the call. More than likely if you start to take the base, he will call it a strike. Wait for him to call the pitch
