Use NFHS Rule 7 - Position and Batting Order
ART. 1 . . . Each player of the team at bat shall become the batter and shall take her position within the batter’s box (on either side of home base), in the order in which her name appears on the lineup card as delivered to the umpire and the opposing team prior to the game (4-1 -2). This order shall be followed during the entire game except that an entering substitute shall take the replaced player’s place in the batting order. A batter is in proper order if she follows the preceding player in the lineup, even though such preceding batter may have batted out of order. An improper batter is considered to be at bat as soon as she enters the batter’s box and one pitch has been thrown. When an improper batter’s infraction is first discovered, time may be requested and the improper batter replaced by the proper batter who will assume the improper batter’s ball and strike count, provided the infraction is detected before the improper batter is put out or becomes a base runner.
ART. 2 . . . After the first inning, the first batter in each inning shall be the player whose name follows that of the last batter who completed her time at bat in the preceding inning. PENALTIES: (Art. 1, 2): 1. A batter shall be called out on appeal when she fails to bat in her proper turn and another batter completes a time at bat in her place. NOTE: Only the defensive team may appeal batting out of order after the batter has completed her time at bat. 2. When an improper batter becomes a runner or is put out and the defensive team appeals to the umpire before the next pitch (legal or illegal), or prior to an intentional base on balls (Si’.), or before the infielders leave the diamond if a half-inning is ending. The umpire shall declare the batter who should have batted out (not the improper batter). The improper batters time at bat is negated and she is returned to the dugout/bench area. All runners who were not declared out must return to the base occupied at the time of the pitch. If a runner advances because of a stolen base, wild pitch, passed ball (F.P.) or an illegal pitch (F.P.) while the improper batter is at bat, such advance is legal.
3. When an improper batter becomes a runner or is put out and a legal or illegal pitch has been delivered to the succeeding batter, or an intentional base on balls (S.P.) has occurred, or all infielders have left the diamond if a half-inning has ended and, in all cases, before an appeal is made. The improper batter becomes the proper batter and the results of her time at bat become legal. 4. When the proper batter is called out because she has failed to bat in turn. The next batter shall be the batter whose name follows that of the proper batter who was called out. 5. When an improper batter becomes a proper batter because no appeal is properly made as above. The next batter shall be the batter whose name follows that of such legalized improper batter. The instant an improper batters action are legalized, the batting order picks up with the name following that of the legalized improper batter. 6. When several players bat out of order before discovery so that a player’s time at bat occurs while she is a runner. Such player remains on base, but she is NOT out as a batter.
