Has anyone ever actually called this?
No because theres also a case play where only one strike is called and especially given the contradiction thats the one I choose to enforce.
I recall that FED has said that this is a left over error. Why they dont go in and fix it I dont know.
The caseplay reflects the rule so I don't know what other caseplay you would be refering to:
As BAM cited:
1. If the pitcher, with a runner on base, stops or hesitates in his delivery because the batter steps out of the box (a) with one foot or (
with both feet or © holds up his hand to request "Time," it shall not be a balk. In (a) and ©, there is no penalty on either the batter or the pitcher. The umpire shall call "Time" and begin play anew. In (
, a strike shall be called on the batter for violation of [url="""]7-3-1[/url]. In (a), (
and ©, if the pitcher legally delivers the ball, it shall be called a strike and the ball remains live. Thus, two strikes are called on the batter in (.
If the umpire judges the batter's action to be a deliberate attempt to create a balk, he will penalize according to [url="""]3-3-1[/url]o.
Not that I encourage looking for this infraction.
