Coach Dale wrote:Per the rule book (cut and paste) and it does not give a different definition for any specific age group. It is supposed to be called the same at ALL age groups:
"THE STRIKE ZONE is that space over home plate, which is between the
batters forward armpit and the top of the knees when the batter assumes a
natural batting stance. Any part of the ball passing through the strike zone
in flight shall be considered a strike; the umpire shall determine the batter’s
strike zone according to the batter’s usual stance"
