Team Baseball Softball

Is there anything in any baseball/softball rulebook about what consitutes a swing??

I am an intramural umpire for softball at my college and recently I called a batter out because he did a check swing bunt in a "pitch to your own team" softball league. Bunting or putting a half-swing is not allowed in this league since the pitcher cannot field it.

When called him out it caused a huge controversy because his team was screaming at me that he followed through and that it was a full, although soft, swing. They started telling me what the definition of a full swing in baseball is, which was news to me because I remember hearing that in the Major League baseball rulebook, there is nothing on what constitutes a swing and it rests solely on the umpire's discretion.

So is there any definition in ANY baseball or softball rulebook on what constitutes a full swing of the bat??

P.S. I know I made the right call, I am just curious as to whether their attempt at lecturing me was bogus as well.

"So is there any definition in ANY baseball or softball rulebook on what constitutes a full swing of the bat??"

Yes. It's in my ASA softball rulebook. It says there are 4 areas which constitute whether or not the batter has swung...
1 - Did he roll his wrists?
2 - Did he swing through the ball and bring the bat back?
3 - Was the bat out in front of his body?
4 - Did he make an attempt to hit the pitch?
