The batter is out any time the umpire judges that she has abandoned her attempt to run the bases. In this case, the umpire will probably judge that turning toward the dugout (especially if she advances toward the dugout) is an abandonment of her attempt to run the bases and call her out.

Why ball dropped in new zealand will not travel in same direction as ball dropped in Scotland?

-- The forces of gravity between two objects act along the line between their centers. -- For objects on Earth, one of the objects involved in mutual gravitational forces is always the Earth, just because it's the biggest mass around. -- So any object dropped on or near the Earth experiences a gravitational force that attracts it toward the center of the Earth. -- The direction from New Zealand toward the center of the Earth is not the same as the direction from Scotland toward the center of the Earth. In fact, they're nearly opposite.
