  1. Thanks guys for the responses. My thought also was that it was lega, but as Maven said (and was correct), it was a little awkward. So that's why I was asking.
  2. Was doing some pre-season work with local HS team tonight. Had a pitcher throwing from the windup in which he would not move his non-pivot foot. Instead, with both feet on the rubber, his first move would be lifting his pivot foot and placing it parallel to the rubber and continuing his motion. I'm trying determine if this is legal.

However R3 scores before the tag was applied to R1 for the 3rd out. Curious on the ruling. My ruling is he passed the base and is “assumed” to have touched it and is called out on the tag and the run counts. Defense would need to appeal the missed base and at that poin
