Issue: Batter continuously steps out of the batters box for no reason. At one point, the pitcher had almost released the ball (and ended up doing so, so his strike was called “dead ball.”) There was no pitching delays from the mound. The kid was just messing up the pitcher. What is the NFHS rule on this? Can he ask for 3 “times” at bat for no reason?
Similar issue: Pitcher for same team would stand on the mound for 15 seconds and do nothing, no wind up, no pick off plays, nothing. While our batter is waiting, ready to hit. Is that allowed?
