Fair question…best answer is either what noumpere said, or the fact that there is no established time a pitcher must pause, it must just be discernible.  Did you see him pause? It so, play on.  I watched it about 10 times and I see the most minutea’ of a pause, and as noumpere said, mlb is different.  It has to be no doubt there was absolutely no pause for them to call it.

I wouldn't have even given this a second look. He never stops when bouncing, I have a clear stop before the pitch...am I missing something?

That’s where I disagree. That free foot/ leg bounces several times. Each time the pause ( or lack there of) before the next bounce is the same. Furthermore, the last pause( or lack there of) before he delivers is just as long ( or short) as each previous pause. So you either have multiple pauses, or no pause at any point because , from what I can see , each “ pause” is identical.

Because MLB doesn't want it called a balk (or it was missed)

I don’t think missed. I agree they don’t want to call it.

I’m fine with no established time. But from where I’m watching, he’s either pausing multiple times or never pausing. .The amount of time between each “tap” is the same. .

This is simply a case of us seeing different things. I see the leg continuously moving up until the last one, then I see a stop.

And given that,  I can see why it’s not a balk. . I had a kid doing something similar last weekend in an 18u tourney, but the continuous movement was more obvious and the final stop was a bit more pronounced.
