There are two batter's boxes, one on each side of home plate. The batter's boxes are 4 feet wide ( m) and 6 feet long ( m). The batter's boxes are centered lengthwise at the center of home plate with the inside line of each batter's box 6 inches ( cm) from the near edge of home plate. A right-handed batter would stand in the batter's box on the left side of home plate from the perspective of the catcher and umpire. A left-handed batter would stand in the batter's box to their right. A batter may only occupy one batter's box at a time and may not legally leave the batter's box after the pitcher has come set or has started his windup. Should the batter wish to leave the batter's box once the pitcher has engaged the rubber , he must first ask the umpire for time-out . Time will not be granted if the pitcher has already started his pitching motion. For playing rules relating to the batter's box, see Rules and of the Official Baseball Rules .
