Inside Move: Baseball Terminology - The Baseball Journal
But I assured everybody that before I went to bed I would research my the answer, and I did. This fake to second move is perfectly legal, albeit as ugly as a Billy-Duck!
Requires the pitcher, while touching his plate, to step directly toward a base before throwing to that base. If a pitcher turns or spins off of his free foot without actually stepping or if he turns his body and throws before stepping, it is a balk.
A pitcher is to step directly toward a base before throwing to that base but does not require him to throw except to first base only because he steps.
It is possible, with runners on first and third, for the pitcher to step toward third and not throw, merely to bluff the runner back to third; then seeing the runner on first start for second, turn and step toward and throw to first base. Of course, if the pitcher steps off the rubber and then makes such a move, it is not a balk. A quick pitch is an illegal pitch. With runners on base the penalty is a balk; with no runners on base, it is a ball.
The quick pitch is dangerous and should not be permitted. If a pitcher is ejected pursuant to Rule 8. The ball is dead, and each runner shall advance one base without liability to be put out, unless the batter reaches first on a hit, an error, a base on balls, a hit batter, or otherwise, and all other runners advance at least one base, in which case the play proceeds without reference to the balk.
In cases where a pitcher balks and throws wild, either to a base or to home plate, a runner or runners may advance beyond the base to which he is entitled at his own risk. A runner who misses the first base to which he is advancing and who is called out on appeal shall be considered as having advanced one base for the purpose of this rule.
Umpires should bear in mind that the purpose of the balk rule is to prevent the pitcher from deliberately deceiving the base runner.

However, certain specifics should be borne in mind: This is not to be interpreted as throwing to an unoccupied base. A pitcher can turn to second from the rubber and NOT have to make the throw - 8. I was always taught that a pitcher had to go home if his foot passed the plate, but read the comment of 8. Smoke coming from my ears This is what happens when you over think a scenario. The answer is that a pitcher can bring his back foot across the back edge and pivot to throw and not make the throw and everything is fine.
