Hitting The Ball Out Of The Batter's Box


Jim Phelps from Pendleton, OR asks:

In little league what does the hitter have to do to "step out of the box" when hitting a pitch? Does his foot have to be completely out of the lines?

In Little League, as well as every other level of baseball, if a batter hits a pitched ball while he has one or both of his feet completely out of the batters box then the batter is automatically out. Completely out of the box means that if he has a foot on the line of the batter's box then that foot is not completely out of the box
