Also known for strike zone. It is the understood area, in the height, between the chest and the knees of the rebatedor and, in the width, the area of the base located to the front of the receiver (home plate). To the ball launched for the arremessador that to inside pass of the delimitations of allowed height and width (zone of strike) of – the name of strike (good ball). The arremessos are of the zone of strike are marked as being bad balls (balls) for batting, unless the rebatedor turns the parquet block. If the arremessador to launch 4 bad balls (balls), understands that it did not play balls that allowed batting, therefore the rebatedor conquest 1 base (walk) and the following aggressor enters to strike.
If the arremessador to launch 3 good balls (strikes) and aggressor not to obtain to strike none of them, this last one will be eliminated (out). Any foulball (struck outside of the allowed delimitations of field) is considered strike, unless already they have 2 strikes. The rebatedor (attacking) must stimulate the possible ball more far so that it has conditions to give the return in the field, passing for 1, 2 and 3 bases, until arriving at home plate that he is 4 and last base of where it initiated the race. Each corridor that reaches home plate marks a point. The only possibility of if marking a point without the defense can intervene are through home run, when the ball stimulated for the rebatedor exceeds the walls of the deep one of the field; this is the maximum play of the baseball. Home run corresponds to a point and of to the rebatedor, and the corridors that eventually will be in the bases, the right to conquer all the bases until reaching home plate.
