One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
An area over home plate extending approximately from the armpits to the knees of a batter when in the batting position. The ball must be pitched through this area in order for a strike to be called.
- ‘Trouble is, to hear most players and managers talk about it, the new strike zone never has been enforced.’
- ‘Most of the time, the ball comes in below the strike zone, but it's thrown so hard the batter has no chance to adjust.’
- ‘He sees the same strike zone in both leagues these days - which is to say, a lower and wider one than in years past.’
- ‘Perez starts mapping the plate with his hands and an imaginary strike zone.’
- ‘Like the strike zone in baseball, right of way can vary slightly depending on which referee you have.’
