It has to be okay. The batter isn't allowed to step anywhere else while he's batting. If you're talking about the chalk lines around the batter's box, yes. They are a part of his boundaries and he can touch them with his foot.
"The crowd cheered as the team's star player stepped into the batter's box."
One Answer:Before the hit yes. After no. the home plate is in fair territory between the batters box and first base so it is often stepped on, however the batter must hit the ball while inside the batters box. Correct Answer:There is no rule in MLB prohibiting a batter from stepping on home plate.
The batter is out.
No, the batter's box is in foul territory.
If the batter is outside of the box when contact is made, the batter is out.
Batter's BoxThe batter's box is 4' x 6' and is 6 inches from the plate.
if he is the batter and INSIDE the batters box he gets 1 st base.....if he is outside of the batters box then he does not get 1st base. it becomes a judgment call if the ump calls it a ball,strike or called time.
No the batter has to make no effort to move out of the batters box, because most of the time it would have been a swing and a miss, and the catcher will go around the batter too make the throw, and usually the batter will stay in the box as an obstacle to the catcher.
no. the batter can stay in the batters box as long as they dnt move when someone is stealing third base. if the batter tried to block the catcher tho by moving, the bater is out. if the catcher hits the batter and the batter is still standing in the batters box, and the catcher throws to third base and the third baseman tags the runner the runner is still safe.
