The pitcher can throw to 3rd with a jump pivot , but he has to throw, he cannot jump pivot and fake a throw.
it's 63.72 ft
no, someone has to occupy a base for you to make a motion towards it. P.S. Are you a lefty?
It is a fielders choice
Runner returns to prior base.
The official scorer would have to determine if the throw was catchable. If the throw was, then the error would be on the first baseman and he would be charged as such. If on the other hand the throw was a bad one and the first baseman had to reach and could not catch the ball, then the error is on the pitcher. Only one error would be charged even though the base runner advanced two base and scored.
-Pitcher -Catcher -1st base -3rd base -2nd base -Shortstop
If a balk was called it would be called on his move to 3rd, not the move to 2nd in this situation. Balks are called on first movement, so as long as he did everything properly "stepping to 3rd", then he can throw to wherever he wants
First base get the easy out
it stops the ball if its a over throw
it is the number of a play for the pitcher to fake a pickoff to 1st and go to 3rd
