PLATE

ZONE

FAST PITCH STRIKE ZONE

ARM PITS

SOME PART OF A LEGALLY

PITCHED BALL MUST PASS

THROUGH THIS STRIKE ZONE

TO BE CALLED A STRIKE

TOP OF KNEES

REMEMBER THAT THE POSITION IN THE BATTER’S BOX MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. THE PLATE AND THE BATTER’S NATURAL STANCE AT THE PLATE ARE THE CONTROLLING FACTORS.

WORKING THE SLOT
• OUTSIDE THE PERIMETER OF

THE STRIKE ZONE

• AT THE TOP OF THE STRIKE ZONE
• SLIGHTLY INSIDE THE INSIDE CORNER

OF THE PLATE

SET POSITION
• THE POSITION YOU ASSUME TO CALL BALLS AND STRIKES
• TIMING

• TRACKING THE BALL IS WATCHING THE BALL

FROM THE PITCHER’S HAND INTO THE CATCHERS GLOVE/MITT

• USING A SLIGHT MOVEMENT OF THE HEAD AND EYES GUIDED BY YOUR NOSE
• MOVING BODY ON PITCH
STRIKE CALLS
• VOCAL
• TIMING
• MECHANICS
STRIKE ZONE
• BOOK RULE
