Since this is a HS game, safety is the first issue to address. Although batter has both feet in the box, it does not mean he is ready. At higher levels of ball, you usually don't have this problem as the pitchers are more relaxed and not overanxious. You must use your judgement and game management skills here to prevent these kind of problems. The first time he starts to deliver before everybody is ready, call time. Now tell the catcher and the pitcher to look for your hand signal to either hold up, or pitch. Take control of these situations before they turn into real problems.
