The pitcher can throw to 3rd with a jump pivot , but he has to throw, he cannot jump pivot and fake a throw.
no, someone has to occupy a base for you to make a motion towards it. P.S. Are you a lefty?
it's 63.72 ft
It is a fielders choice
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.
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
Runner returns to prior base.
if the pitcher steps off (does not touch at all) the rubber (white strip on pitchers mound) he can throw anywhere he wants. If he is touching the rubber at all (usually with the side of his shoe) any movement (minor movement such as turning head to look at 1st/3rd is allowed) is a balk. a balk (for those who don't know) is a foul by the pitcher and is described in the rule book as "anything done by the pitcher to deceive the batter". therefore certain calls are open to interpretation by the umpire. -LM, umpire
First base get the easy out
When there are no outs the pitcher should always throw the ball to third base to get the lead runner. The third baseman now has the opportunity to throw to first for the double play as well.If there is time you should always get the lead runner out. This keeps the force in play for the next batter.Opinion/Answer:This really depends on the level of baseball you are playing and I guess to an extent what your coach wants you to do. However, in more advanced baseball (i.e professional or college), in this situation the pitcher should go to 2nd base and then to first for a 1-4-3 or 1-6-3 (depending on who covers 2nd on the throw) double play. In this situation you would have a runner on 3rd with 2 outs. In advanced levels of baseball this is an ideal position for the defense because you rely on the defense to get the out so the run wont score. If the pitcher goes to 3rd and then to 1st to try and get the double play you are 1. creating a longer throw from 3rd to 1st then you would have 2nd to 1st risking your chances at getting the double play. In most cases if you have a runner or 2nd or a runner on 3rd with 2 outs they will score on a base hit as they will run on contact --- so the pitcher should go to 2nd and then 1st for the easiest double play and leave the runner at 3rd (with the speed in professional baseball you are going to have a hard time getting a 1-5-3 double play, that being pitcher- to 3rd- to 1st)
it is the number of a play for the pitcher to fake a pickoff to 1st and go to 3rd
it stops the ball if its a over throw

When hit by right hand-ers (the majority of batters) it means the ball was pulled that direction and is going much faster. So the 3rd baseman must have fast reflexes. Also the 3rd baseman then has to make the throw to 1st base. This is a far throw and the 3rd baseman must have a strong accurate arm.

About 60 feet. Baseball is played on a " Diamond " right? The dimensions of the baseball Diamond are 90 feet along all four sides. A throw directly across the diamond from 3rd base to 1st base is 127 feet 3 3/8 inches. If the shortstop was positioned exactly midway between 3rd base and 2nd base and 15 feet off the base line toward left field, the throw would be approx. 114 feet.
Each runner, other than the batter, may without liability to be put out, advance one base when there is a balk or the batters advance without liability to be put out forces the runner to vacate his base, or when the batter hits a fair ball that touches another runner or the umpire before such ball has been touched by, or has passed a fielder, if the runner is forced to advance The bases of the baseball diamond are 90 ft apart. The diagonal distance between 1st and 3rd bases is therefore about 127.3 ft (90 feet times the square root of 2). The pitcher's mound lies (roughly) in the center so it will be half the distance between 1st and 3rd bases - 62.6 feet. That's how far the pitcher has to throw to get a base runner out on 1st. It's the same distance he has to throw to get the ball to the catcher (roughly - since he steps toward home plate as he delivers the pitch).

Home plate's point faces the catcher. The opposite side is flat to the pitcher. Home plate also lies within the base paths whereas 1st, 2nd, and 3rd lie on the outside of the base paths. The pointy sides are the intersection of the 1st and 3rd base lines.

Sometimes you can throw to that base but it is like 75 percent because it needs you to be spot
you could check the runners at 2nd and 3rd, and then throw to first base. Once that is done, throw it home to prevent the runner on 3rd to go home.
