Strikes and Balls

“The batter has three strike zones: his own, the opposing pitcher’s, and the umpire’s.

The umpire’s zone is defined by the rule book, but it’s also more importantly defined by the way the umpire works.
A good umpire is consistent so you can learn his strike zone.

The batter has a strike zone in which he considers the pitch the right one to hit.

The pitchers have zones where they are most effective.
Once you know the pitcher and his zone you can get set for a particular pitch.”
