Question about the pitch clock. Does the time start as soon as the

batter is in the box, or the pitcher has the ball.
On Ginn's called infraction, the batter was out of the box at .48 seconds. He stepped towards the box at .48 and looks settled in the box at .49. Touched the plate with the bat, his head looking down. At .50 he looks at the pitcher.
The pitch was delivered at .06 and in the mitt at .07.
That looks to me like .17 seconds. The question is when is the clock started?
I looked at the NCAA rule and they don't specify when the 20-seconds start.
