I watched this happen yesterday between the Cubs and Dodgers.

It is a strike. It happened as a player was hit in the leg as they were squared up to bunt. His back foot was outside the batter's box and behind the plate, where he was struck with the pitch. It was called a strike.

What is the penalty for a batter standing with one foot outside the batters box in little league?

In Little League, the batter is out if they hit the ball with one foot completely out of the batter's box. There is no penalty if they don't hit the ball. There could be a penalty on the pitcher if the reason the batter has a foot out of the box is because the batter didn't finish stepping into the box. A quick pitch is an illegal pitch which counts as a ball.
