This year, NFHS expanded their definition of "confines of the field" to include all adjacent warm up areas. So, in that sense, this means that this was within your domain. If you felt that this was a safety issue, then you probably should have addressed this with the coach.

As far as finding a rule that covers wearing batting helmets while in the batting cage, no, NFHS doesn't cover this. However, there is a likelihood that it will be covered in future rulebooks, as more and more umpires, like yourself, discover that while NFHS has expanded the area for which we are responsible, they haven't given any guidelines as to how they want certain situations as this one treated.

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to have to paint it.
