This situation is very common in the womens game here in New Zealand .
Rachel has it right as far as the defense goes . Call inside and the batter will soon move .
As an umpire with no batters boxes marked , well you are guessing if the batter hits the ball and you call them out if you THINK they were out of the box .
Rule is the same as ISF
If the batter does get hit and the ball is in the strike zone . Dead ball and a strike on the batter.
We do not have the same liability as to injuries etc the you in the states have so I am thinking this affects out thinking on many areas of the game .
At present all the liability is on the players .
