Hi, this is my first post.
Have you ever heard of this rule? A right handed pitcher on my team would step on the rubber, look at first, then step off the rubber, break his hands and pump fake to first. The umpire said this was a balk. I thought that once the pitcher steps off the rubber he then becomes a fielder and can pump fake to first base. The pitcher did this 3 or 4 times and the ump called him every time on that “rule”.
