No because you have to relese the ball when you take it out of your glove when pitching.
It will nullify the look back rule but other than that nothing happens.
According to the National Softball Association rulebook, Women's Adult Slow Pitch Divisions shall have a pitching distance of 53 feet.
Measure from the front edge of the pitching rubber to the back tip of home plate.
The pitching distance is 40 feet from home plate to the back of the pitching rubber. For 18U Gold and collegiate softball the pitchers mound is 43 feet away. This is because pitchers throwing at these levels throw much faster than those at the lower levels, making it a lot harder for batters to identify pitches.
The batting average is math because you have to add, subtract and divide. Another one is how far the bases are back and the pitching mound.

A base runner has 5 seconds (i think could be a little different) to either return to the back they came from or to try to proceed to the next bag once the pitcher has the ball within the pitching circle. If the player waits too long after the pitcher enters the circle, they will be called out. If a player starts to go one direction, like back to the base they originally came from then switches directions, this is also against the rules and the runner will be called out.
