    Situation, Runner on 1st, no outs. The count on the batter is 3-1, the batter requests time-out which is not granted. The batter steps out of the batters box with one or both feet. The pitcher continues to pitch and intentionally throws at the batter or hits the batter. What do you have applying NFHS rules?

    I see a couple of rule violations in this situation. One or two strikes on the batter for stepping out of the batters box with one or both feet. Pitcher throws at the batter. Dead ball for a pitch that hits the batter. Possible ejection of the pitcher.
