Default Re: Balk?

The announcers said it wasn't a balk, so how could it be a balk?!?

Lefties often get away with that. This time he didn't.

[SARCASM=renegadewolf1;123456]As the commentators said, It's a great move, that's why it's a balk.... never mind the forward motion to home then switching directions, not stepping directly to first and breaking the plane....I'm sure I've read it in 8.05 somewhere that a "great move" is a balk, just have to "read between the lines" [/SARCASM]

The fact that he left foot ended up stepping down in front of the rubber means nothing.
I haven't seen a view that shows the foot breaking the plane and even if one of the various angles did show it, I'd have a hard time being convinced that, as the PU, you can tell when the foot passes the back edge of the rubber.
