Discussion: Stepping out of the box to avoid being quick-pitched
A couple things from the rule book:
1.56 • QUICK PITCH
A pitch made by the pitcher with the obvious attempt to catch the batter
unprepared. This would be before the batter takes his desired position in the
batter's box or while he is still off balance as a result of the previous pitch.
6.11 • QUICK PITCH
The pitcher shall not attempt a quick return of the ball before the batter has
taken his position or when the batter is off balance as a result of a pitch.
EFFECT: The umpire will call time and allow the batter to get set.
6.13 • NO PITCH
No pitch shall be declared when:
A. The pitcher pitches during the suspension of play.
B. The pitcher attempts to "quick pitch" the batter.
Don't put your second foot into the box until you are ready, and never take your eye off the pitcher.

Two Pitches, Three Outs
Twin Creeks Leagues at one time had a no swear rule - if you swear it's an out. They also had each batter start with a one and one count. First inning of the game the batter is in the box, messing around for quit some time. I finally got tired of waiting and threw a pitch. The batter looks up, the pitch hits the mat and the umpire calls it a strike. The batter starts arguing with the umpire. The whole time he is standing in the box, so after waiting I finally pitched a second ball which also hit the mat. The umpire declares strike three you're out. The batter turns and tells the umpire that was f'ed up. The umpire declares an additional out for swearing. The on deck batter walks up and tells the ump "that was bullsh*t!". The umpire then assesses another out for swearing, third out. My teammates didn't know what happened as they thought I was walking off because I was thrown out. And yes, we did go on to win the game. Fastest half inning ever!
