Is it legal to try? Yes....but if you actually make contact with the ball and your entire foot is outside of the box at time of contact (not just in the air, but actually touching outside all of the line of the box) - or if touching home plate in a HS game - and if it was seen by the PU who admittedly has more important things to watch at that time (namely, the pitch itself), then you would be out.

Thanks scrounge. I saw Wilkerson do it in the bottom of the 3rd tonite, but I think his heel might still have been touching some chalk. The ump  had no clue as to strike or ball.

The ball was batted into play - no strike or ball call to be made.
