Discussion: marking batter's box
Having been a certified ASA and NSA umpire, there is no specific rule that addresses a player marking the batter's box. Based on the info you have provided, you were called out for upstaging the ump which most umpires would take as a sign of disrespect. Sounds to me like that particular ump was not real easy to get along with. I have learned that no matter how I feel about a call when I am playing, it's up to me to adjust to that particular umpire that day and play accordingly. At this point in time, I would just let it go and move on. It's not worth worrying about now as the past can't be changed.
