When it comes to official softball fields, there are specific field measurements. Below is a diagram of a softball field that you can download and use as references. The softball field diagram is provided to give you an idea of measurements and layout that maybe used for your field. Foul line and other measurements can change to area designated for softball field layout etc.
Softball is a game very similar to baseball but with a few obvious differences that include that the softball is larger and softer than the baseball and pitching is done underhand, rather than overhand as is the case with baseball. The softball field size is a bit smaller than the baseball field. The softball diamond too is a bit smaller than the baseball diamond. The following softball field diagram examples and templates below will give you further overview of the field.
The softball field is bound by lines on two sides of the home plate, known as the foul lines. The area beyond the foul lines is known as the foul zone. The playing area is divided into the infield and the outfield. The diamond is a square area marked by running lines for the hitter. The pitching mound is a circular area at the center of the diamond. The pitching area has a radius if 8 ft. The foul lines form a 90 degree angle on the home base. The home plate is supposed to have an area of 38 square centimeters, and is fastened to the ground. The coaches area is beyond the first and third baselines. They are both rectangular shaped 15 feet by 3 feet areas, and are 5 ft beyond the baselines.
