Had a pitcher in junior legion (OBR based) game last week start in the standard windup position, take a step towards first base with the free foot, then move the pivot foot (all standard movements so far) then quickly touch his free foot to the ground and reset himself, then stride out for the pitch. I'm assuming this is illegal under 5.07(a) "The pitcher may not take a second step toward home plate with either foot or otherwise reset his pivot foot in his delivery of the pitch. If there is a runner, or runners, on base it is a balk under Rule 6.02(a); if the bases are unoccupied it is an illegal pitch under Rule 6.02(b)." ? Opposing coach didn't have an issue and I just let it slide in this low-stakes summerball game. Also would be interested to know if this is illegal under FED?
And as an aside, another ever see fielders wearing helmets? This pitcher was wearing a skullcap (helmet) instead of a hat. Didn't see to move around at all and wasn't a hinderance at all. He even wore it when moving to second base later in game.
