No. A balk affects only runners and is called when there is at least one runner on base. The penalty for a balk is that all runners are allowed to advance one base. The batter is awarded nothing regardless of whether or not there are runners on base at the time of the balk.

Incorrect...per MLB rule book...If a balkable offense is committed with no runners on base, a ball is awarded to the hitter.
