LL Junior. R2 breaks stupid-early, while the RHP is set. Pitcher does a jump/turn and throws to 3B for the out. (Obviously not a violation of OBR 6.02 (4) because the throw is for the purpose of making a play.) What ways could a pitcher balk on this? What are you watching for? Anything different than a jump/turn to 1B?

R1, 1st Base Coach loudly speaks out, "That's a balk," before the pitcher delivers. How should this be handled under FED and OBR rulesets? We told the coach to knock it off and let us make that call. There was no balk to be called. Fortunately, we had no more problems in the game with this coach trying to "help us out."
I recall reading somewhere that the offender could be ejected if they were warned and continued, but I can't seem to find the correct references. Any reference(s) would be appreciated.
I love how Joe calls this ........
Kershaw has been doing this for a while and ....in my eyes, it's a balk and he does it everytime. He's pissed because no one else call it on him but Joe! He moves forward torward home ....
Kershaw is also a cry-baby ...look at him "not even close!" I'm surprised Joe kept him in the game, lol
