I had one batter that had no intention of actually trying to hit the ball that would come up and get right on the plate. At that point there were no drawn box and if I had to estimate it, the back of her foot might be on the front of the line. Except call the strike if it hits her in the strike zone, is there any other remedy you can, by rule, use? I have actually seen umpires tell batters that they felt were too far up in the box to get back before the pitch which I feel is wrong as it is not the umpires job to coach them but if they hit it with a foot "completely" out of the box to call the out. What say ye?

BTW: This was a FED game but I would be interested in any and all interps as I call ASA, FED, NSA and USSSA.
