NFHS 5-1-3/OBR 5.05b1

Under high school rules, the defensive team can verbally request a base on balls. Time is called and the batter is sent to first base with no pitches thrown. The request can be made at any time during an at bat, so the ball/strike count at the time of the request does not matter.

[OBR: the pitches must be thrown.]
