Default Rule Interpretation

A. The batter must have at least some portion of both feet on or inside the
lines of the batter's box at the start of the pitch. A batter who steps out of
the batter’s box at any time during the pitch and then hits the ball, fair
or foul, shall be called out. Steps out means touching the ground
completely outside of the lines of the batter’s box. (See §1.5)

Does this rule mean that if a batter steps one foot out of the batter's box as the ball is in the air to "Juke" the defensive players that he is not going to swing and then steps back in and establishes position in the batter's box and then hits the ball, would he be called "OUT"?
