Is a switch hitter required to declare a side before batting?

Not in MLB. A batter may bat from whatever side he wants to on whatever pitch he wants to.

A switch hitter could alternate sides for each pitch if he so desired. Rules concerning the batter can be found in Section 6 of the Official MLB Rules.
